Alliance Memory AS29CF160x-55TIN Parallel NOR Flash Memories

Alliance Memory AS29CF160x-55TIN Parallel NOR Flash Memories are organized as 2,097,152 bytes of 8 bits or 1,048,576 words of 16 bits each. These memories use pins I/O0 to I/O7 for 8-bit data and pins I/O0 to I/O15 for 16-bit data. The AS29CF160x-55TIN Flash memories are available in 48-pin TSOP packages. These memories are designed to be programmed in-system with the standard system 5V VCC supply. The AS29CF160x-55TIN memories require only a single 5V power supply for both read and write functions. The program and erase functions use internally generated and regulated voltages.

The AS29CF160x-55TIN Flash memories are entirely software command set compatible with the JEDEC single power supply flash standard. These memories feature sector-erase architecture that allows memory sectors to be erased and reprogrammed without affecting the data contents of the device. The power-saving features allow the device to be placed in standby mode with greatly reduced power consumption.

  • Data Polling and toggle bits
    • Provides a software method of detecting the completion of a program or erasing operations
  • Ready/BUSY pin (RY/BY)
    • Provides a hardware method of detecting the completion of a program or erasing operations
  • Erase Suspend/Erase Resume
    • Suspends a sector erase operation to read data from, or program data to, a non-erasing sector, then resumes the erase operation
  • Hardware reset pin (RESET)
    • Hardware method to reset the device to reading array data
  • WP input pin (48 pins TSOP)
    • At VIL, protects the 16Kbyte boot sector from erasure regardless of sector protect/unprotect status
    • At VIH, allows the removal of boot sector protection
  • Package options
