The article introduces the Spectra flash file system, an embedded software developed by Denali Software Inc. in the U.S. It features solution for both commercially available NAND and NOR flash devices which include both single-level and multi-level cell flash. In more advanced designs, Spectra can process multiple threads between real-time operating system and the flash device, and it allows execute-in-place operation to enable programs to run code from the same location where it is permanently stored. Moreover, Spectra has a fast error-correcting code algorithm to detect and repair single or multibit errors.
