FlashFX Tera is smart management software for flash storage. It has drivers that support hundreds of NAND and NOR and flash controllers. It provides proprietary wear balancing and bad block management capabilities in any embedded flash memory system. For programmers developing on VxWorks who need an efficient, reliable, and easy-to-use Flash support suite, FlashFX Tera is the only efficient, multithreaded Flash media management software that has been tested to be compatible with VxWorks and DOSFS.
The FlashFX Tera offers high performance
The FlashFX Tera is targeted at applications that require real-time reading and writing from Flash media, such as digital cameras, set-top boxes, hand-held medical devices, and applications that support audio and video streaming operations. Because these multimedia applications require zero-latency reading from flash memory, the FlashFX Tera provides multithreading support to ensure zero latency for read and write applications.
The FlashFX Tera offers high reliability and support for power down protection
The FlashFX Tera is fault-tolerant in design and ensures data consistency by never overwriting stored data. In the event of a system crash or power outage, the data remains data integrity at the block device level. The FlashFX Tera also provides wear-leveling algorithms to extend the life of Flash. The FlashFX Tera explicitly keeps records of erased blocks. It also includes the NAND Flash bad block manager, which keeps track of all NAND good and bad sector records to ensure reliable storage.
Supported file systems
VxWorks, DOS, Nucleus, Threadx, or Windows CE
The FlashFX Tera is compatible with DOSFS
The FlashFX Tera is compatible with DOSFS if the customer needs to store critical data. The FlashFX Tera works with Datalight Reliance for VxWorks' reliable transaction-based file system. FlashFX can also work alone without having to work with a file system.
The FlashFX Tera supports a full range of Flash chips
Datalight maintains good partnerships with major Flash vendors to ensure support for the latest NAND and NOR Flash chips. The FlashFX Ttera supports 100 different Flash types, including AMD, Fujitsu, Intel, NEC, SanDisk, Samsung, ST Microelectronics and Toshiba.Datalight provides Flash Interface Modulation (FIMS) in source form to Interface with different Flash products. This allows customers to use the new Flash chip design simpler, shorter cycle time.
