Joint Decoding of content-replication codes for flash memories

Abstract: One serious challenge for flash memories is the data reliability. In this work, we present the content- replication codeword problem, and it leads to a novel joint decoder proposed here. We focus on the joint decoding algorithm designs and study their theoretical decoding performances in this work.
