Flash Translation Layer (FTL) is the device driver software that makes flash memory device appear to the system like a disk drive. Since flash memory cannot be written over existing data unless erased in advance, the FTL usually employs special address mapping algorithms to avoid having to erase on every data update. In this paper, we propose a new FTL algorithm which considers the access patterns of data blocks. Proposed scheme monitors write access patterns of data blocks and intelligently manages the address mapping to improve the performance. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme improves the space utilization without significant write/update performance degradation.
