- In this letter, we propose a static wear leveling technique, called Recency-based Wear Leveling (RbWL). The basic idea of RbWL is to execute static wear leveling at minimum levels, because the frequent migrations of cold data by static wear leveling cause significant overhead in a NAND flash memory system. RbWL adjusts the execution frequency according to a threshold value that reflects the lifetime difference of the hot/cold blocks and the total lifetime of the NAND flash memory system. The evaluation results show that RbWL improves the lifetime of NAND flash memory systems by 52%, and it also reduces the overhead of wear leveling from 8% to 42% and from 13% to 51%, in terms of the number of erase operations and the number of page migrations of valid pages, respectively, compared with other algorithms.
