Samsung Software increases efficiency of its proprietary embedded flash memories
Samsung announced today that it is introducing software designed to optimize the high performance features of its proprietary embedded flash memories: OneNAND , Flex-OneNAND and moviNAND , in smart phones, using the major mobile operating systems – Windows Mobile(CE), Symbian, Linux, and RTOS (real-time operating system). Samsung’s new software optimizes data transactions within its memory chips as they interact with the operating system. The new file system/flash driver combination, when working with any of the memory chips and the operating system, will boost performance through faster booting, downloading and searching. This results in improving multimedia intensive operations common in smart phones, 3rd generation phones, digital still cameras, digital camcorders, memory cards, and digital TVs.
The new embedded flash-optimized software from Samsung is expected to shorten application design-in times and, as a result, broaden the adoption of advanced embedded-flash solutions, particularly where management of high-speed video images and high-resolution still images is important.
