Smart Meter File System uses structured database approach to maximize flash life and reduce power consumption
The software is developed using high quality development methodology and is rigorously compliant with the MISRA C:2004 coding standard. The HCC ‘Smart-meter File SystemTM' (SMFSTM) requires less than 15kB program memory and less than 1.5kB of RAM on most 32-bit MCUs.
Metering applications work with well-defined records that are more suited to a database approach. General-purpose file systems do not have any cyclic buffer logic for storing records and this adds complexity to applications. SMFS uses a structured database to reduce complexity of the application and improve the performance of the system in almost every way—speed, power consumption, and flash life.
SMFS is available immediately for a range of 16 and 32-bit MCUs and SOCs, and thanks to HCC’s Advanced Embedded Framework, can easily integrate with any RTOS, toolchain or development board.
