Smartphone memory boost from new Samsung software

Samsung has announced they are to roll out software that has been designed to improve embedded flash memory within their range of smartphones.

Samsung has said this new software will optimise data transactions within its memory chips while interacting with a Windows Mobile, Linux, Symbian, or real-time OS. Samsung states this will bring about speedier booting, searches, and downloads which will greatly increase power performance.

Samsung’s new software file systems include PocketFS, RFS, and UniFS, these execute file operations such as creating, reading, writing, and deleting files.

Samsung says: these flash drivers can also prolong the mobile phones lifetime, and is achieved by converting “file system requests into low-level flash operations and by wear-levelling and bad-block replacing.”

VP of Samsung’s memory division, Young Joon Choi, said: “The new software, which upgrades performance of our embedded memory solutions, is expected to make OneNAND and other high-performance, high-density memory solutions such as the 16-GB movieNAND desirable for advanced handsets.”
