Wiki > Main > WhimoryFTL (r3)
Whimory is the name of the Flash Translation Layer (FTL) used in several NAND-flash based mp3 players.

FTLs typically manage the following tasks:
  • Presenting the flash as a simple block-device to the filesystem layer above
  • Wear leveling of the NAND flash, spreading out the erase operations evenly over all blocks
  • Error detection and correcting
  • Bad-block management, keeping a list of bad flash blocks so they are no longer used to store data
Players using the Whimory FTL include:
