*NOTICE: Stresses beyond those listed under “Absolute Maxi-
mum Ratings” may cause permanent damage to the device.
This is a stress rating only and functional operation of the
device at these or any other conditions beyond those indi-
cated in the operational sections of this specification is not
implied. Exposure to absolute maximum rating conditions
for extended periods may affect device reliability.
Absolute Maximum Ratings*
After the software data protection’s 3-byte command code
is given, a byte load is performed by applying a low pulse
on the WE or CE input with CE or WE low (respectively)
and OE high. The address is latched on the falling edge of
CE or WE, whichever occurs last. The data is latched by
the first rising edge of CE or WE. The 256-bytes of data
must be loaded into each sector by the same procedure as
outlined in the program section under device operation.
Hardware features
protect against inadvertent programs to the AT29C040A
in the following ways: (a) VCC sense— if VCC is below 3.8V
(typical), the program function is inhibited. (b) VCC power
on delay— once VCC has reached the VCC sense level,
the device will automatically time out 5 ms (typical) before
programming. (c) Program inhibit— holding any one of OE
low, CE high or WE high inhibits program cycles. (d) Noise
filter— pulses of less than 15 ns (typical) on the WE or CE
inputs will not initiate a program cycle.
The product identifica-
tion mode identifies the device and manufacturer as At-
mel. It may be accessed by hardware or software opera-
tion. The hardware operation mode can be used by an ex-
ternal programmer to identify the correct programming al-
gorithm for the Atmel product. In addition, users may wish
to use the software product identification mode to identify
the part (i.e. using the device code), and have the system
software use the appropriate sector size for program op-
erations. In this manner, the user can have a common
board design for 256K to 4-megabit densities and, with
each density’s sector size in a memory map, have the sys-
tem software apply the appropriate sector size.
For details, see Operating Modes (for hardware operation)
or Software Product Identification. The manufacturer and
device code is the same for both modes.
The AT29C040A features DATA poll-
ing to indicate the end of a program cycle. During a pro-
gram cycle an attempted read of the last byte loaded will
Device Operation (Continued)
result in the complement of the loaded data on I/O7. Once
the program cycle has been completed, true data is valid
on all outputs and the next cycle may begin. DATA polling
may begin at any time during the program cycle.
In addition to DATA poll i n g th e
AT29C040A provides another method for determining the
end of a program or erase cycle. During a program or
erase operation, successive attempts to read data from
the device will result in I/O6 toggling between one and
zero. Once the program cycle has completed, I/O6 will
stop toggling and valid data will be read. Examining the
toggle bit may begin at any time during a program cycle.
The entire device
can be erased by using a 6-byte software code. Please
see Software Chip Erase application note for details.
AT29C040A has two designated memory blocks that have
a programming lockout feature. This feature prevents pro-
gramming of data in the designated block once the feature
has been enabled. Each of these blocks consists of 16K
bytes; the programming lockout feature can be set inde-
pendently for either block. While the lockout feature does
not have to be activated, it can be activated for either or
both blocks.
These two 16K memory sections are referred to as
blocks. Secure code which will bring up a system can be
contained in a boot block. The AT29C040A blocks are lo-
cated in the first 16K bytes of memory and the last 16K
bytes of memory. The boot block programming lockout
feature can therefore support systems that boot from the
lower addresses of memory or the higher addresses.
Once the programming lockout feature has been acti-
vated, the data in that block can no longer be erased or
programmed; data in other memory locations can still be
changed through the regular programming methods. To
activate the lockout feature, a series of seven program
commands to specific addresses with specific data must
be performed. Please see Boot Block Lockout Feature En-
able Algorithm.
If the boot block lockout feature has been activated on
either block, the chip erase function will be disabled.
