Page Replacement Algorithms for NAND Flash Memory Storages

Recently, embedded systems usually employ NAND flash memory as data storages because of its small size, lightweight, shock resistance, and low-power consumption. The I/O operations of NAND flash memory are significantly different from those of traditional hard disk. For example, a read or a write operation in NAND flash memory is performed by the unit of flash page, and an erase operation should be preceded for a group of adjacent flash pages called block before a write operation is performed.
