Samsung Announces Development of NAND Flash Software

Samsung Electronics has announced development of NAND flash software specially created for high performance multimedia applications. The new software greatly simplifies multimedia system platform design by enabling Samsung's 16 Gigabit NAND flash to be easily adapted to mobile applications with large storage needs, such as portable media players and video MP3 players.

The new software, with accompanying transactional file system, supports all of the system performance requirements of Samsung's 16Gb NAND. Samsung's 16Gb NAND flash, which has been in mass production since April, programs data in 4KB pages of dual planes, twice as fast as previous generations. Samsung's new software optimizes the fast data transfer speeds of 16Gb NAND, while protecting against sudden power failures.

The new flash software will be used immediately with a new chipset from Actions Semiconductors the ATJ213X a highly-integrated 32-bit RISC, and 24-bit DSP-based system on a chip. Samsung's new software will be available to consumer electronics system designers as part of Actions' support software package for its new chipset, which will be available later this month. Actions Semiconductor provides comprehensive mixed-signal, SoC solutions for portable consumer electronics.
