The ONFI NFC Driver is a low-level driver developed for Arasan’s ONFI Nand Flash Controller IP that is used to communicate with the Nand Flash Device. The driver can also be used for validating a Nand flash device during its development and integration life cycles thereby helping designers reduce the time to market for their products. It provides a set of generic APIs to identify, read, program, and erase the flash device.
The Driver consists of two layers –, Hardware layer, and OS Abstraction Layer.
Compliant with ONFI 3.2 and backward compatible to ONFI 3.0, 2.3 and 1.0
Supports SDR, NV-DDR and NV-DDR2, Toggle DDR/DDR2 modes
Easy-to-use interface for applications
Support up to NAND with 16K page size
Fully documented generic device operation APIv
Supports Read, Program and Erase Operations
Supports Cache Program, Cache Sequential and Random Read Operations
Supports LUN Resets, Multi LUN/DIE Operations
Supports On Die Termination
