nandsim(4) NAND Flash simulator driver


device nand device nandsim options ALQ


The 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.

The support first appeared in Fx 10.0 .


The kernel driver was developed by An Grzegorz Bernacki . This manual page was written by An Rafal Jaworowski .
