Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Memory Corporation has announced it is launching its Flash System Manager (FSM) later this month. FSM is described a new technology, which Memory says will improve the efficiency and reliability of file storage applications for flash memory. The new algorithms behind FSM are the result of research into data storage in flash memory, and Memory says that with up to 4.5Mb data write speed, the new controller is the fastest available on the market, and most useful to the emerging digital photography market. The controller, called FSC-2, is designed to work with standard flash devices like AND devices from Hitachi as well as NAND type from Toshiba, Samsung, AMD and Fujitsu. Other features include optimised flash address sequencing, wear levelling and error correction. Shipments of PC cards and CompactFlash cards will start in Q3 this year. ®
