Logic Technology: Datalight releases FlashFX Tera 4.1 with FreeRTOS support
Datalight has released the latest version of its FlashFX Tera product. This release introduces support for FreeRTOS, the popular operating system for micro-controller-based IoT devices, and the most recent versions of Linux. Designers of resource-constrained devices will also benefit from enhanced support for SPI NAND and SPI NOR.
SPI NAND is experiencing a rise in popularity in IoT applications, due to low cost per megabyte, reduced board space requirements, and lower pin count that improve overall device cost. Datalight has introduced support for this flash media in the 4.1 release of FlashFX Tera. In addition, the existing support for SPI NOR has been improved. The quad-SPI support will provide solid driver support for both NAND and NOR flash media.
With this new FlashFX Tera release, resource-constrained designs that use FreeRTOS can more easily integrate Datalight’s power failsafe file system for the IoT, Reliance Edge. These projects can gain complete data reliability as well as improved flash memory performance and longevity by pairing FlashFX Tera and Reliance Edge. FlashFX Tera version 4.1 also offers expanded support for RTOSes used in higher-end embedded designs, adding VxWorks 64-bit environments and Linux Kernel support from 3.4 through 4.9. These popular RTOSes are used in a variety of designs but often included in aviation, automotive and consumer projects. The product is available immediately from Datalight and its European partner Logic Technology.
