There are more new types of storage media offered every year, and making the right choice for your application is becoming more complex. In this class, you will discover the strengths and weaknesses of different technologies. We will cover the basics of different storage media types, including SD, e-MMC, NAND, NOR, PCM, and USB Mass Storage devices.
March 6 - Day 3: Balancing Performance, Safety & Resource Usage in an Embedded File System
Continuing Education Center 
3/6/2013  236 comments
Engineers often have to make tradeoffs when meeting the performance, safety, and cost requirements for their projects. In this session, you will learn how to choose which file system mechanisms and features to use, depending on the importance of each of these criteria for your system.
March 5 - Day 2: Understanding How the File Allocation Table (FAT) Operates
Continuing Education Center 
3/5/2013  233 comments
The FAT file system has become the de facto standard for data exchange between systems. It is ubiquitous on USB drives, memory cards, and other portable devices because of its wide compatibility with operating systems for personal computers. In this class, we will discuss how this industry standard works and consider its strengths and limitations.
