    To wear leveling or not to wear leveling... this is the question

    user_246790957

      Hi all,

       

      I am developing a HW and SW solution that includes a SPI flash device from the family S25FS512S. I couldn't find a reference as for do I need to have a wear leveling algorithm for the SPI access or not. My application includes writing a maximum of 100 times per page throughout the life of the product. I am not worried about wear leveling but about bad blocks. Is it possible that blocks will become bad during operation if I am well below the 100,000 erase cycles? If there is a chance for bad blocks, what is the recommended handling of files on the flash device?

      I appreciate any comments

      Thanks,
