Software Serves Mobile Applications
Optimized for Micron’s ONFI-standard single-level cell (SLC) NAND technology, Micron Technology’s NANDcode software supports mobile OSs including Windows Mobile 6, Linux, and Symbian. The product contains a flash translation layer (FTL) that employs wear leveling techniques to evenly allocate the data throughout the NAND. The Flash drivers work with the device’s processor to deliver greater performance through data caching schemes and dual-plane operations, according to the company. The software contains security features that allow the NAND Flash to restrict access to certain sensitive pieces of information held within the device.
