Command Definitions
Writing specific address and data commands or sequences
into the command register initiates device operations. The
command sequences. Writing incorrect address and data
values or writing them in the improper sequence resets the
device to reading array data.
All addresses are latched on the falling edge of
WE or CE ,
whichever happens later. All data is latched on the rising
edge of
WE or CE , whichever happens first. Refer to the
appropriate timing diagrams in the "AC Characteristics"
Reading Array Data
The device is automatically set to reading array data after
device power-up. No commands are required to retrieve
data. The device is also ready to read array data after
completing an Embedded Program or Embedded Erase
algorithm. After the device accepts an Erase Suspend
command, the device enters the Erase Suspend mode. The
system can read array data using the standard read timings,
except that if it reads at an address within erase-suspended
sectors, the device outputs status data. After completing a
programming operation in the Erase Suspend mode, the
system may once again read array data with the same
exception. See "Erase Suspend/Erase Resume Commands"
for more information on this mode.
The system must issue the reset command to re-enable the
device for reading array data if I/O5 goes high, or while in the
autoselect mode. See the "Reset Command" section, next.
See also "Requirements for Reading Array Data" in the
"Device Bus Operations" section for more information. The
Read Operations table provides the read parameters, and
Read Operation Timings diagram shows the timing diagram.
Reset Command
Writing the reset command to the device resets the device to
reading array data. Address bits are don't care for this
command. The reset command may be written between the
sequence cycles in an erase command sequence before
erasing begins. This resets the device to reading array data.
Once erasure begins, however, the device ignores reset
commands until the operation is complete.
The reset command may be written between the sequence
programming begins. This resets the device to reading array
data (also applies to programming in Erase Suspend mode).
Once programming begins, however, the device ignores
reset commands until the operation is complete.
The reset command may be written between the sequence
cycles in an autoselect command sequence. Once in the
autoselect mode, the reset command must be written to
return to reading array data (also applies to autoselect during
Erase Suspend).
If I/O5 goes high during a program or erase operation, writing
the reset command returns the device to reading array data
(also applies during Erase Suspend).
Autoselect Command Sequence
The autoselect command sequence allows the host system to
access the manufacturer and devices codes, and determine
whether or not a sector is protected. The Command
Definitions table shows the address and data requirements.
This method is an alternative to that shown in the Autoselect
Codes (High Voltage Method) table, which is intended for
PROM programmers and requires VID on address bit A9.
The autoselect command sequence is initiated by writing two
unlock cycles, followed by the autoselect command. The
device then enters the autoselect mode, and the system may
read at any address any number of times, without initiating
another command sequence.
A read cycle at address XX00h retrieves the manufacturer
code and another read cycle at XX11h retrieves the
continuation code. A read cycle at address XX01h returns the
device code.
A read cycle containing a sector address (SA) and the
address 02h in returns 01h if that sector is protected, or 00h
if it is unprotected. Refer to the Sector Address tables for
valid sector addresses. When a Read occurs at an address
within the 16Kbyte boot sector (SA34 for the top boot devices
and SA0 for the bottom boot devices), the input on the WP
pin may determine what code is returned.
16Kbyte Sector
01 (Protected)
01 (Protected)
00 (Unprotected)
01 (Protected)
Note 1. Sector is protected from erasure. Programming within
the sector is still permitted.
The system must write the reset command to exit the
autoselect mode and return to reading array data.
Word/Byte Program Command Sequence
The system may program the device by word or byte,
depending on the state of the BYTE pin. Programming is a
four-bus-cycle operation. The program command sequence is
initiated by writing two unlock write cycles, followed by the
program set-up command. The program address and data are
written next, which in turn initiate the Embedded Program
algorithm. The system is not required to provide further
controls or timings. The device automatically provides
programmed cell margin. Table 9 shows the address and data
requirements for the byte program command sequence.
When the Embedded Program algorithm is complete, the
device then returns to reading array data and addresses are
longer latched. The system can determine the status of the
program operation by using I/O7, I/O6, or RY/BY . See “Write
Operation Status” for information on these status bits.
Any commands written to the device during the Embedded
Program Algorithm are ignored. Note that a hardware reset
immediately terminates the programming operation. The Byte
Program command sequence should be reinitiated once the
device has reset to reading array data, to ensure data
Programming is allowed in any sequence and across sector
boundaries. A bit cannot be programmed from a “0” back to a
“1”. Attempting to do so may halt the operation and set I/O5 to
“1”, or cause the Data Polling algorithm to indicate the
operation was successful. However, a succeeding read will
show that the data is still “0”. Only erase operations can
convert a “0” to a “1”.
