Exploiting the Interplay Between Memory and Flash Storage in Embedded Sensor Devices

Although memory is an important constraint in embedded sensor nodes, existing embedded applications and systems are typically designed to work under the memory constraints of a single platform and do not consider the interplay between memory and flash storage. In this paper, the authors present the design of a memory-adaptive flash-based embedded sensor system that allows an application to exploit the presence of flash and adapt to different amounts of RAM on the embedded device. They describe how such a system can be exploited by data-centric sensor applications.
