The SEGGER "NAND-Flash EVAL" board is an easy to use and cost effective testing tool  designed  to  evaluate  the  features  and  the  performance  of  the  emFile  NAND driver.

There are two ways to access the data in the NAND flash memory. It can be accessed via file system using emFile.
Alternatively the data can be accessed as a USB mass storage device like a USB-Stick using emUSB-Device with MSD class and emFile storage layer.

Common evaluation boards are usually used to perform these tests but this approach brings several disadvantages. Software and hardware development tools are required to  build  and  load  the  application  into  the  target  system.  Moreover,  the  tests  are restricted to the type of NAND flash which is soldered on the board.

The "NAND-Flash EVAL" board was designed to overcome these limitations and provides the user with an affordable alternative. The main feature is that the NAND flash is not directly soldered on the board. A 48-pin TSOP socket is used instead which allows the user to experiment with different types of NAND  flashes.  This  helps  finding  the  right  NAND  flash  for  an  application  and  thus reducing costs.
A  further  important  feature  is  that  the  "NAND-Flash  EVAL"  board  comes  preloaded with a USB-MSD application. When connected to a PC over USB, the board shows up as a removable storage on the host operating system. Performance and functionality tests of NAND flash can be performed in this way without the need of an expensive development environment. All current operating systems will recognize the board out of the box.
