NAND Flash File System Speeds Development of Embedded SystemsSAN JOSE, Calif. -- Feb. 12, 2008
-- Arasan Chip Systems, Inc., ``Arasan,'' a leader in Intellectual Property (IP) solutions -- IP cores, Verification IP (VIP), Software drivers and stacks and Hardware solutions, announced today its first embedded software package offering for NAND Flash controllers, the Arasan NAND Flash File System (NFS). Completing the NAND Flash memory offering with needed embedded software, Arasan offers designers all the components required for development.
``NAND Flash memory, with ever increasing storage requirements, has become a de-facto standard in next generation portable, mobile and embedded products, and designers are exerting significant time and energy in design to support these requirements,'' said Kevin Yee, Vice President of Marketing at Arasan. ``By delivering on the promise of a 'Total IP Solution,' the flash file system and memory controller is enabling designers to go to market quickly while providing flexibility to address specific memory needs in their application.''
The Arasan NFS in combination with the NAND Flash IP controller provides embedded system developers with a full featured flash file system that delivers optimal performance for commercially available NAND flash devices. The NAND Flash File System simplifies the complicated task of NAND flash memory interfacing to simple memory access. The software enables system developers to rapidly deploy high-quality flash memory systems for a wide variety of applications, ranging from portable mobile systems to large network systems. Using the Arasan NFS frees system developers to choose from a variety of NAND Flash offerings in the market and select the technology that best suits their needs.
Used with Arasan's NAND flash memory controller, Arasan's NFS provides a ``Total IP Solution,'' enabling customers to minimize risk, reduce development time and cut costs. The NAND flash controller IP is hardware verified and proven.Pricing and Availability
