I need to know why do we need MTD?
Is it the Unix / Linux constarints that recognizes everything as a
file. I.e it has built in capability to communicate with different
files with read and wrtite operations only.
where as a flash has different operation i.e erase read, erase write and erase.
So to interface and communicate with flash devices unix / linux need
to have some translation mechanism which can allow us to communicate
How do these translation mechanism maps erase read , erase write and
erase operation in to simple read write operation?
Are there any other advantages / Disadvantages of MTD ?
I am not sure what kind of flash memory are supportted with MTD?
I have already read most of the document on
is there any other document that explains in detail about MTD?
Thanks & Regards
