NAME

     nandsim — NAND Flash simulator driver

SYNOPSIS

     device nand
     device nandsim
     options ALQ

DESCRIPTION

     The nandsim is part of the FreeBSD NAND framework nand(4) and can be characterized with the
     following highlights:

     ·   plugs into the nand(4) framework APIs as if it were a hardware controller (hanging on
         the nexus bus) with real NAND chips connected to it

     ·   physically part of the kernel code (either statically linked into the kernel image or
         built as a module)

     ·   controlled with a user space program nandsim(8)

     From the user perspective, the nandsim allows for imitating ONFI-compliant NAND Flash
     devices as if they were attached to the system via a virtual controller.

     Some nandsim features rely on the ability to log contents to a file, which is achieved
     through the alq(9) facility.

SEE ALSO

     nand(4), nandsim.conf(5), nandsim(8)

STANDARDS

HISTORY

     The nandsim support first appeared in FreeBSD 10.0.
