The embedded community has seen a shift toward greater interest and adoption of NAND. One top-tier silicon vendor reports that 90% of all NVM (non-volatile memory) sales are NAND based. With lower cost-per-bit and higher density than NOR flash counterparts, NAND presents an attractive option to an industry being squeezed by the competing expectations of lower cost and increased storage. But along with its advantages are challenges for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), including part availability and end-of-life concerns. The 2009 global economic recession also had a huge impact on NAND production.

This web seminar will cover NAND benefits and challenges and how OEMs using VxWorks can mitigate the risks by using Datalight FlashFX Pro.
