Flash File Systems

HCC has three Flash file systems, each designed to achieve the best balance of performance and resource utilization in their targeted embedded configuration. These file systems share a common API to ensure portability, and can interface with any type of sector-based media. This comparison table compares the features of the first two systems listed below:

  • SafeFLASH – makes execution of file operations and use of flash much more efficient than with a FAT-compliant file system.
  • TINY – fail-safe flash file system for use in resource-constrained applications.
  • Smart-Meter File System (SMFS) – a system built around the needs of smart-meters, it uses a structured database to reduce the complexity of the application and improve performance.
