The NECSST(Next-generation Embedded/Computer System Software Technology) Lab has been conducting research on flash memory since the year 2000 and research on non-volatile memory (aka NVRAM, NVM, Storage Class Memory (SCM), New Memory, etc.) since the year 2004. We are currently being supported by NRF (the NFS equivalent of Korea), the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, and Samsung Electronics, among others. Our current focus of research is as follows:

  • Operating system issues related to flash memory & Solid State Drives (SSDs)
    • Efficient file system design and implementation for SSDs
    • Efficient FTL design and implementation for Flash memory
    • QoS issues for flash memory and SSDs
  • Operating system redesign for non-volatile memory deployed systems
