Is there a relation between data retention and the number of endurance cycles ?

Hi

As we know that we guarantee a data retention period of 20 years and a endurance of 1000k store cycles,

But my question is that, does the data retention period decrease as we approach the limit of endurance ?

i.e. say we have done the 999,999 th store operation, Can we still guarantee a data retention of 20 years before the final store?

 

Thanks

Akhi

Hi Akhi,

The data retention does not decrease with endurance cycles. Therefore, in your application, you will get 20 years of data retention before the final store.

Thanks

Ravi
