Flash Memory-Based Development Platform for Homecare Devices
Source: Seoul National University
Flash memory is increasingly being used in embedded systems because of its small size, low power consumption, fast access time, and high shock and vibration resistance. This paper presents a flash memory-based development platform for embedded systems in general and homecare devices in particular, and explains its key features that provide ease and flexibility in exploring cost-performance trade-off in flash memory-based storage devices. In addition to its special emphasis on support for flash memory-based storage, the platform is designed to provide fast prototyping and easy evaluation for a wide range of embedded systems.
