Fundamentals of Reliable Flash Storage

White Papers, Application Notes, Presentations & Articles

We have covered a range of embedded topics over the years and have now started to publish a series titled 'The Fundamentals of Reliable Flash Storage'. These papers aim to explain the basics of controller and Flash technology as well as some of their inherent intricacies. While the majority of our white papers are avaliable to all registered users, some cover more specific topics. These papers (see list below) are available only under Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). To access these papers, please contact us directly after you register to start the process.

Your input matters - If you have a NAND Flash-based question or a topic you think should be explained in further detail, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
