I am looking for some general advice on building a robust means of data storage including configuration parameter storage. This is for a data logger/ controller application. It will likely be done with a Raptor or similar. On power up I need to read configuration parameters, update information like the time/date it was last started, During operation, performance data will be logged at <10 frames per second, and < 150 bytes per frame.
Each time the system is powered up, it will start recording to a new file.
This will be a battery powered product. It is likely to be powered from external sources, and accidental disconnect of power is likely to occur, at least sometimes.
So my question is if I should expect better results by off loading the storage requirements to an ALFAT subsystem, at least as it should conduct file operations for shorter periods of time? And perhaps it has better built in functionality to protect data/file structure integrity?
In looking at the support forum I did not see much in the way of combinations of ALFAT and NETMF, and did not see any ALFAT Gadgeteer modules, so should I take it as a sign that these products are not used together much?
If ALFAT+NETMF is a good way to go, is there any example code, or is it just so easy that examples are not needed?
Thanks for any ideas.
