Challenges of Tomorrow's Data Storage in Automotive

Automotive systems have become increasingly complex, raising the risk of flash memory wear out occurring before end-of-life of the car. What’s more, fragmentation could simply break an automotive system. This whitepaper describes those effects in more detail and suggests ways to mitigate the risks.

The Impacts of File System Fragmentation on Automotive Storage Performance

Groundbreaking studies have shown fragmentation to be a risk to modern automotive systems, potentially causing sluggish flash storage performance and even critical system failure within a car. This whitepaper examines in detail the ways that fragmentation affects the performance of an automotive system.

How to Avoid End of Life from NAND Correctable Errors

Flash media is fabulous for most use cases, but heavy reads can cause correctable errors. Linux flash file systems actually shorten the life of the media when dealing with these errors. How does this change with multiple bits per cell, including recent QLC NAND? This paper, by Thom Denholm, covers both this problem and the impacts in detail, from flash file systems to SSDs and other NAND flash-based media.
