Data Sheet
Figure 5, on page 29 illustrates the algorithm for the erase operation. See the
table “Erase/Program Operations” on page 45 for parameters, and Figure 18, on
page 47 for timing diagrams.
Sector Erase Command Sequence
Sector erase is a six bus cycle operation. The sector erase command sequence is
initiated by writing two unlock cycles, followed by a set-up command. Two addi-
tional unlock write cycles are then followed by the address of the sector to be
erased, and the sector erase command. Table 10, on page 31 and Table 11, on
page 32 show the address and data requirements for the sector erase command
sequence. Note that the Secured Silicon Sector, autoselect, and CFI functions
are unavailable when an erase operation is in progress.
The device does not require the system to preprogram the memory prior to erase.
The Embedded Erase algorithm automatically programs and verifies the sector for
an all zero data pattern prior to electrical erase. The system is not required to
provide any controls or timings during these operations.
After the command sequence is written, a sector erase time-out of 50 µs begins.
During the time-out period, additional sector addresses and sector erase com-
mands may be written. Loading the sector erase buffer may be done in any
sequence, and the number of sectors may be from one sector to all sectors. The
time between these additional cycles must be less than 50 µs, otherwise the last
address and command might not be accepted, and erasure may begin. It is rec-
ommended that processor interrupts be disabled during this time to ensure all
commands are accepted. The interrupts can be re-enabled after the last Sector
Erase command is written. If the time between additional sector erase commands
can be assumed to be less than 50 µs, the system need not monitor DQ3. Any
command other than Sector Erase or Erase Suspend during the time-out
period resets the device to reading array data. The system must rewrite the
command sequence and any additional sector addresses and commands.
The system can monitor DQ3 to determine if the sector erase timer timed out.
(See “DQ3: Sector Erase Timer” on page 38.) The time-out begins from the rising
edge of the final WE# pulse in the command sequence.
Once the sector erase operation starts, only the Erase Suspend command is valid.
All other commands are ignored. Note that a hardware reset during the sector
erase operation immediately terminates the operation. The Sector Erase com-
mand sequence should be reinitiated once the device returns to reading array
data, to ensure data integrity.
When the Embedded Erase algorithm is complete, the device returns to reading
array data and addresses are no longer latched. The system can determine the
status of the erase operation by using DQ7, DQ6, DQ2, or RY/BY#. (Refer to
“Write Operation Status” on page 33 for information on these status bits.)
Figure 5, on page 29 illustrates the algorithm for the erase operation. Refer to the
table “Erase/Program Operations” on page 45 for parameters, and Figure 18, on
page 47 for timing diagrams.
Erase Suspend/Erase Resume Commands
The Erase Suspend command allows the system to interrupt a sector erase oper-
ation and then read data from, or program data to, any sector not selected for
erasure. This command is valid only during the sector erase operation, including
the 50 µs time-out period during the sector erase command sequence. The Erase
