New Linux MTD driver support for DiskOnChip flash devices

Miles Gillham writes "SnapGear Inc. has announced the first MTD (Memory Technology Device subsystem) Linux driver support for the M-Systems Millennium Plus family of DiskOnChip flash devices. The driver support now makes it possible for Linux developers to take advantage of M-Systems' widely deployed DiskOnChip technology.

Specifically, the achievement brings driver support for M-Systems INFTL (Inverse NAND Flash Translation Layer). DiskOnChip offers flash code and data storage ranging from 8MB up to 1GB in size, making flash memory appear as a standard hard disk, and provide safe flash memory writes.
