Word/Byte Configuration
BYTE pin determines whether the I/O pins I/O15-I/O0
operate in the byte or word configuration. If the
BYTE pin is
set at logic ”1”, the device is in word configuration, I/O15-I/O0
are active and controlled by
CE and OE .
If the
BYTE pin is set at logic “0”, the device is in byte
configuration, and only I/O0-I/O7 are active and controlled by
CE and OE . I/O8-I/O14 are tri-stated, and I/O15 pin is used
as an input for the LSB(A-1) address function.
Requirements for Reading Array Data
To read array data from the outputs, the system must drive
CE and OE pins to VIL. CE is the power control and
selects the device.
OE is the output control and gates array
data to the output pins.
WE should remain at VIH all the time
during read operation. The
BYTE pin determines whether
the device outputs array data in words and bytes. The
internal state machine is set for reading array data upon
device power-up, or after a hardware reset. This ensures that
no spurious alteration of the memory content occurs during
the power transition. No command is necessary in this mode
to obtain array data. Standard microprocessor read cycles
that assert valid addresses on the device address inputs
produce valid data on the device data outputs. The device
remains enabled for read access until the command register
contents are altered.
See "Reading Array Data" for more information. Refer to the
AC Read Operations table for timing specifications and to the
Read Operations Timings diagram for the timing waveforms,
lCC1 in the DC Characteristics table represents the active
current specification for reading array data.
Writing Commands/Command Sequences
To write a command or command sequence (which includes
programming data to the device and erasing sectors of
memory), the system must drive
WE and CE to VIL, and
OE to VIH. For program operations, the BYTE pin
determines whether the device accepts program data in
bytes or words, Refer to “Word/Byte Configuration” for more
information. The device features an Unlock Bypass mode to
facilitate faster programming. Once the device enters the
Unlock Bypass mode, only two write cycles are required to
program a word or byte, instead of four.
The “Word/Byte Program Command Sequence” and “Unlock
Bypass Command Sequence” has detail descriptions on
programming data to the device using both standard and
Unlock Bypass command sequence. An erase operation can
erase one sector, multiple sectors, or the entire device. The
Sector Address Tables indicate the address range that each
sector occupies. A "sector address" consists of the address
inputs required to uniquely select a sector. See the
"Command Definitions" section for details on erasing a sector
or the entire chip, or suspending/resuming the erase
After the system writes the autoselect command sequence,
the device enters the autoselect mode. The system can then
read autoselect codes from the internal register (which is
separate from the memory array) on I/O7 - I/O0. Standard
read cycle timings apply in this mode. Refer to the
"Autoselect Mode" and "Autoselect Command Sequence"
sections for more information.
ICC2 in the DC Characteristics table represents the active
Characteristics" section contains timing specification tables
and timing diagrams for write operations.
Program and Erase Operation Status
During an erase or program operation, the system may
check the status of the operation by reading the status bits
on I/O7 - I/O0. Standard read cycle timings and ICC read
specifications apply. Refer to "Write Operation Status" for
more information, and to each AC Characteristics section for
timing diagrams.
Standby Mode
When the system is not reading or writing to the device, it
can place the device in the standby mode. In this mode,
current consumption is greatly reduced, and the outputs are
placed in the high impedance state, independent of the
The device enters the CMOS standby mode when the
CE &
RESET pins are both held at VCC ± 0.3V. (Note that this is a
more restricted voltage range than VIH.) If
are held at VIH, but not within VCC
± 0.3V, the device will be
in the standby mode, but the standby current will be greater.
The device requires the standard access time (tCE) before it
is ready to read data.
If the device is deselected during erasure or programming,
the device draws active current until the operation is
ICC3 and ICC4 in the DC Characteristics tables represent the
standby current specification.
Automatic Sleep Mode
The automatic sleep mode minimizes Flash device energy
consumption. The device automatically enables this mode
when addresses remain stable for tACC + 30ns. The automatic
sleep mode is independent of the
CE , WE and OE control
signals. Standard address access timings provide new data
when addresses are changed. While in sleep mode, output
data is latched and always available to the system. ICC4 in the
DC Characteristics table represents the automatic sleep
mode current specification.
Output Disable Mode
When the
OE input is at VIH, output from the device is disabled.
The output pins are placed in the high impedance state.
RESET : Hardware Reset Pin
The RESET pin provides a hardware method of resetting the
device to reading array data. When the system drives the
RESET pin low for at least a period of tRP, the device
immediately terminates any operation in progress, tristates all
data output pins, and ignores all read/write attempts for the
duration of the RESET pulse. The device also resets the
internal state machine to reading array data. The operation that
was interrupted should be reinitiated once the device is ready to
accept another command sequence, to ensure data integrity.
Current is reduced for the duration of the RESET pulse.
When RESET is held at VSS ± 0.3V, the device draws
CMOS standby current (ICC4 ). If RESET is held at VIL but not
within VSS
± 0.3V, the standby current will be greater.
