Subject: DRAM Error Rates
I was hoping someone could help me out. We have recently seen a problem where we are getting high levels of bit errors from the "persistent memory" after a reset. Do you have statistics that would show what bit error rate we should expect if DRAM refresh was not done? Do you know if lack of DRAM refresh could cause bits to go 0->1 as well as 1->0?
