SYNOPSISdevice nand device nandsim options ALQ
DESCRIPTIONThe is part of the Fx NAND framework nand(4) and can be characterized with the following highlights:
- plugs into the nand(4) framework APIs as if it were a hardware controller (hanging on the nexus bus) with real NAND chips connected to it
- physically part of the kernel code (either statically linked into the kernel image or built as a module)
- controlled with a user space program nandsim(8)
From the user perspective, the allows for imitating ONFI-compliant NAND Flash devices as if they were attached to the system via a virtual controller.
Some features rely on the ability to log contents to a file, which is achieved through the alq(9) facility.
STANDARDSOpen NAND Flash Interface Working Group (Vt ONFI )
HISTORYThe support first appeared in Fx 10.0 .
AUTHORThe kernel driver was developed by An Grzegorz Bernacki . This manual page was written by An Rafal Jaworowski .
