iflash2+_mtd - memory technology driver for Intel Series 2+ flash
is a memory technology driver for Intel Series 2+ flash
devices. Memory technology drivers are used by Card Services to
provide device-independent access for memory cards through bulk memory
In addition to backwards compatibility with Series 2 flash devices,
Series 2+ devices provide fast page-mode transfers, which allow
sequential flash writes to proceed in the background without active
monitoring. While faster than Series 2 cards in actual write speeds,
this means that Series 2+ cards also do not tie up the
host processor while writes are in progress.
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only available
if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A non-zero value
Sets the access speed of shared memory windows, in nanoseconds. The
default is 0 (i.e., no extra wait states). Values of up to 1000 are
A flag indicating if memory windows should be configured for
8-bit (if 0) or 16-bit (if 1) transfers. The default is 1 (16-bit).
In milliseconds, this specifies the maximum idle period after a write
operation before programming power will be switched off. The default
is 1000 ms.
In milliseconds, this gives a delay between when programming power is
switched on, and when the device is assumed to be powered up and ready
to receive erase or write commands. The default is 100 ms.
In milliseconds, specifies the maximum elapsed time for a page write
(256 words) before it times out. The default is 100 ms.
In milliseconds, specifies the poll interval for monitoring the status
of a bulk erase operation. The default is 100 ms.
In milliseconds, specifies the maximum elapsed time before an erase
operation is assumed to have failed. The default is 10000 ms.
The maximum number of retries for a write operation. The default is
The maximum number of status register polls before various commands
are assumed to have timed out. The default is 4096.
