Introducing YAFFS, the first NAND-specific flash f

Anonymous Reader writes: "In this technical article at, the originator of YAFFS introduces the open source YAFFS flash file system, which he describes as 'the only file system, under any operating system, that has been designed specifically for use with NAND flash.' Flash memory chips are commonly used in embedded systems and devices in place of much larger and more fragile hard drives, but they require special software, called a flash file system. YAFFS is designed to be used with low-cost NAND chips that are soldered onto a circuit board within the device or contained on SmartMedia cards, which are popular for storage memory expansion in PDAs and other mobile devices."
