Title: MEMORY BACKUP MANAGEMENT IN COMPUTING SYSTEMS
Abstract:
Embodiments of memory backup management in computing devices and associated methods of operations are disclosed therein. In one embodiment, a method of managing memory backup includes in response to a system error being detected, causing a memory controller to disengage from communicating with and controlling a hybrid memory device having a volatile memory module and a non-volatile memory module. The method can also include causing the hybrid memory device to copy data from the volatile memory module to the non-volatile memory module subsequent to disengaging the memory controller communicating with and controlling the storage device and without operating the main processor and the memory controller.
