Evatronix together with HCC Embedded announce availability of its fail-safe Flash Translation Layer, SafeFTL , optimized specifically for the Evatronix NAND Flash controller IP. The goal is to merge the security provided by the fail-safe FTL from HCC with the high-performance NAND Flash controller IP from Evatronix. The result is a fast, secure solution ready for implementation in all NAND Flash-based SoCs.
The Evatronix NAND Flash Controller IP is one of the most configurable memory controllers in the market, supports memory devices from all major vendors – Micron, Toshiba and Samsung. The controller features numerous performance enhancements, like an effective Error Correction Code, hardware support for Bad Block Management, a scatter-gather DMA, Super Sequence and Command queue. For seamless integration into the customer’s SoC, the controller supports AMBA AXI/AHB, PLB and Avalon system buses.
HCC’s Fast Flash Translation Layer provides a high-performance solution that allows developers to interface to any Flash-based media. SafeFTL presents a simple logical, sector interface to an application, such as a file system, and manages the underlying complexity in an efficient manner. When used in a correctly designed system the integrity of the file system and its data are guaranteed.
