Bothell, WA, August 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Datalight announced today that it has released new versions of Reliance™ and FlashFX® Pro with preconfigured support for Wind River Linux.
The new install experience includes simplified integration with Wind River Workbench, an award-winning, Eclipse-based development platform. Dropped into Wind River Workbench, Datalight products build as kernel loadable modules that work with a project’s OS image. Sample bootstrap code is also supplied for users needing to integrate the products into a boot loader.
"Developers choose Wind River Linux for our broad range of hardware support and stable code base. Our VxWorks customers have enjoyed the benefits of the Datalight flash file system platform for years, and we are pleased that Wind River Linux customers now have the option of adding Datalight performance and reliability to their designs,” said Paul Anderson, vice president of Linux product engineering at Wind River.
Other upgrades include a read-only version of Reliance inside the Datalight Loader. This small footprint version permits a boot loader to load an OS image directly from a Reliance partition. Devices benefit from risk-free “in-place OS upgrades” enabled by the application-controlled transaction point feature of Reliance.
The new versions also feature enhancements in reliability and support for a wide range of new flash parts. FlashFX Pro now supports Spansion NS-P, Samsung FlexOneNAND, Micron 55nm flash parts and all CFI-compliant NOR parts.
The Datalight flash file system solution is comprised of the Reliance file system and FlashFX Pro intelligent flash media manager. Reliance was designed from the ground up for high reliability applications. Dynamic Transaction Point technology provides 100 percent immunity from file corruption, even after unexpected system interruption. Embedded applications can benefit from faster boot times that remain consistent for the life of the product regardless of disk size. FlashFX™ Pro features prewritten support for more than 200 flash parts, works with virtually any NAND controller and features wear leveling, bad block management and garbage compaction for unrivaled performance. Datalight flash file system products are also available on other operating systems including Wind River VxWorks.
Datalight, Inc. headquartered just north of Seattle, Wash., develops technologies to enable risk-free mobile data. Datalight file system and device driver software ensures reliability, performance and flexibility, and is used worldwide on many of today’s most well-known devices.
