Clearly, flash memory has significantly replaced various historic storage media. As examples, some 5 years back people were using film in non-digital cameras, computers were offering floppy disc drives, portable CD players played your favourite tunes, and mobile phones were incapable of taking pictures, browsing the web or synchronising with a PC. In recent years, consumers have become accustomed to using a large variety of NAND flash memory devices for data storage applications. Users of mobile phones, digital cameras, and other gadgets are familiar with the terms SD card, USB-stick, CF cards and the like. Such kinds of small and handy memory systems have become everyday commodities among consumers.

Hyperstone flash memory card or solid state disc controllers together with included firmware provide considerable mechanisms when handling a complex medium–making flash memory easy to use for consumer applications and reliable for industrial applications. Furthermore, firmware that is stored in the flash itself offers several possibilities for custom features, even when based on identical hardware.
