The Context: With their fast boot times, Alliance Memory’s 5V parallel NOR flash solutions are ideal for high-performance and process-intensive applications. The devices’ flexible sector architectures allow any combination of sectors to be erased and reprogrammed without affecting the content of other sectors — ensured by a hardware protection feature that prevents inadvertent program or erase operations. An Embedded Program algorithm automatically writes and verifies bytes at specified addresses, while an Embedded Erase algorithm automatically erases and verifies the entire chip or designated sectors.
Availability: Samples of the 5V parallel NOR Flash memory products are available now. Production quantities will be available in October 2019, with lead times of six to eight weeks.
