Wear leveling algorithm used in NX2LP

Last Updated: April 04, 2011

What is the wear leveling algorithm used in the NX2LP?


Ans : Our wear leveling algorithm in a nutshell follows Smart Media Spec. For example when doing a write to a block, the fw takes a new block from the spare area and writes the new information into that block. The old block is put into the spare pool so it can be used on consequent writes. This method prevents blocks from repeatedly being written.
