Flash wear


March 31, 2014 - 9:38pm, 1507 views

Can someone from Gemalto comment on the EGS5, etc. flash wear. The documentation suggests that using the flash extensively is not a good idea. However, can you tell us what operations should be most avoided. For instance, if I write to flash rarely but read often, is that OK?

Are there any wear levelling algorithms that we should be aware of?
