Best Practices for Optimizing Flash Media Performance in Embedded Applications
Flash-based solid-state drives (SSD) are replacing hard disk drives (HDD) in telecommunications, networking, healthcare devices, and other embedded market segments. But where exactly should optimizations be made to maximize the performance of SSD-based devices?
This white paper describes the need for optimizations to take place during the system design process, and highlights best practices for embedded system designers. Topics to be addressed include:
- Programming/erasing NAND flash
- SLC vs. MLC NAND technology
- Effects of file sequential vs. random access
- And more
