GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Am29DL640G is a 64 megabit, 3.0 volt-only flash
memory device, organized as 4,194,304 words of 16
bits each or 8,388,608 bytes of 8 bits each. Word
mode data appears on DQ15–DQ0; byte mode data
appears on DQ7–DQ0. The device is designed to be
programmed in-system with the standard 3.0 volt VCC
supply, and can also be programmed in standard
EPROM programmers.
Factory locked parts provide several options. The
SecSi Sector may store a secure, random 16 byte
ESN (Electronic Serial Number), customer code (programmed through AMD’s ExpressFlash service), or
both. Customer Lockable parts may utilize the SecSi
Sector as bonus space, reading and writing like any
other flash sector, or may permanently lock their own
code there.
The device is available with an access time of 70, 90,
or 120 ns and is offered in 48-pin TSOP, 63-ball
Fine-Pitch BGA, and 64-ball Fortified BGA packages.
Standard control pins—chip enable (CE#), write enable (WE#), and output enable (OE#)—control normal
read and write operations, and avoid bus contention
issues.
DMS (Data Management Software) allows systems
to easily take advantage of the advanced architecture
of the simultaneous read/write product line by allowing
removal of EEPROM devices. DMS will also allow the
system software to be simplified, as it will perform all
functions necessary to modify data in file structures,
as opposed to single-byte modifications. To write or
update a particular piece of data (a phone number or
configuration data, for example), the user only needs
to state which piece of data is to be updated, and
where the updated data is located in the system. This
i s a n a d va n t a g e c o m p a r e d t o s ys te m s w h e r e
user-written software must keep track of the old data
location, status, logical to physical translation of the
data onto the Flash memory device (or memory devices), and more. Using DMS, user-written software
does not need to interface with the Flash memory directly. Instead, the user's software accesses the Flash
memory by calling one of only six functions. AMD provides this software to simplify system design and software integration efforts.
The device requires only a single 3.0 volt power supply for both read and write functions. Internally generated and regulated voltages are provided for the
program and erase operations.
Simultaneous Read/Write Operations with
Zero Latency
The Simultaneous Read/Write architecture provides
simultaneous operation by dividing the memory
space into four banks, two 8 Mb banks with small and
large sectors, and two 24 Mb banks of large sectors.
Sector addresses are fixed, system software can be
used to form user-defined bank groups.
During an Erase/Program operation, any of the three
non-busy banks may be read from. Note that only two
banks can operate simultaneously. The device can improve overall system performance by allowing a host
system to program or erase in one bank, then
immediately and simultaneously read from the other
bank, with zero latency. This releases the system from
waiting for the completion of program or erase
operations.
The Am29DL640G can be organized as both a top
and bottom boot sector configuration.

Am29DL640G Features
The SecSi™ (Secured Silicon) Sector is an extra
256 byte sector capable of being permanently locked
by AMD or customers. The SecSi Indicator Bit (DQ7)
is permanently set to a 1 if the part is factory locked,
and set to a 0 if customer lockable. This way, customer lockable parts can never be used to replace a
factory locked part.
2
The device offers complete compatibility with the
JEDEC single-power-supply Flash command set
standard. Commands are written to the command
register using standard microprocessor write timings.
Reading data out of the device is similar to reading
from other Flash or EPROM devices.
The host system can detect whether a program or
erase operation is complete by using the device status bits: RY/BY# pin, DQ7 (Data# Polling) and
DQ6/DQ2 (toggle bits). After a program or erase cycle
has been completed, the device automatically returns
to the read mode.
The sector erase architecture allows memory sectors to be erased and reprogrammed without affecting
the data contents of other sectors. The device is fully
erased when shipped from the factory.
Hardware data protection measures include a low
V CC detector that automatically inhibits write operations during power transitions. The hardware sector
protection feature disables both program and erase
operations in any combination of the sectors of memory. This can be achieved in-system or via programming equipment.
The device offers two power-saving features. When
addresses have been stable for a specified amount of
time, the device enters the automatic sleep mode.
The system can also place the device into the
standby mode. Power consumption is greatly reduced in both modes.

DEVICE BUS OPERATIONS
This section describes the requirements and use of
the device bus operations, which are initiated through
the internal command register. The command register
itself does not occupy any addressable memory location. The register is a latch used to store the commands, along with the address and data information
needed to execute the command. The contents of the
Table 1.
register serve as inputs to the internal state machine.
The state machine outputs dictate the function of the
device. Table 1 lists the device bus operations, the inputs and control levels they require, and the resulting
output. The following subsections describe each of
these operations in further detail.

Notes:
1. Addresses are A21:A0 in word mode (BYTE# = VIH), A21:A-1 in byte mode (BYTE# = VIL).
2. The sector protect and sector unprotect functions may also be implemented via programming equipment. See the “Sector/Sector
Block Protection and Unprotection” section.
3. If WP#/ACC = VIL, sectors 0, 1, 140, and 141 remain protected. If WP#/ACC = VIH, protection on sectors 0, 1, 140, and 141
depends on whether they were last protected or unprotected using the method described in “Sector/Sector Block Protection
and Unprotection”. If WP#/ACC = VHH, all sectors will be unprotected.
Word/Byte Configuration
Requirements for Reading Array Data
The BYTE# pin controls whether the device data I/O
pins operate in the byte or word configuration. If the
BYTE# pin is set at logic ‘1’, the device is in word configuration, DQ15–DQ0 are active and controlled by
CE# and OE#.
To read array data from the outputs, the system must
drive the 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 V IH . The BYTE# pin determines
whether the device outputs array data in words or
bytes.
If the BYTE# pin is set at logic ‘0’, the device is in byte
configuration, and only data I/O pins DQ7–DQ0 are
active and controlled by CE# and OE#. The data I/O
pins DQ14–DQ8 are tri-stated, and the DQ15 pin is
used as an input for the LSB (A-1) address function.

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
Am29DL640G
9
addresses on the device address inputs produce valid
data on the device data outputs. Each bank remains
enabled for read access until the command register
contents are altered.
Refer to the AC Read-Only Operations table for timing
specifications and to Figure 14 for the timing diagram.
ICC1 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 a bank enters the Unlock Bypass mode, only two write cycles are required
to program a word or byte, instead of four. The
“Byte/Word Program Command Sequence” section
has details on programming data to the device using
both standard and Unlock Bypass command sequences.
An erase operation can erase one sector, multiple sectors, or the entire device. Table 2 indicates the address
space that each sector occupies. Similarly, a “sector
address” is the address bits required to uniquely select
a sector. The “Command Definitions” section has details on erasing a sector or the entire chip, or suspending/resuming the erase operation.
The device address space is divided into four banks. A
“bank address” is the address bits required to uniquely
select a bank.
ICC2 in the DC Characteristics table represents the active current specification for the write mode. The AC
Characteristics section contains timing specification
tables and timing diagrams for write operations.
Accelerated Program Operation
The device offers accelerated program operations
through the ACC function. This is one of two functions
provided by the WP#/ACC pin. This function is primarily intended to allow faster manufacturing throughput
at the factory.
If the system asserts VHH on this pin, the device automatically enters the aforementioned Unlock Bypass
mode, temporarily unprotects any protected sectors,
and uses the higher voltage on the pin to reduce the
time required for program operations. The system
would use a two-cycle program command sequence
10
as required by the Unlock Bypass mode. Removing
VHH from the WP#/ACC pin returns the device to normal operation. Note that VHH must not be asserted on
WP#/ACC for operations other than accelerated programming, or device damage may result. In addition,
the WP#/ACC pin must not be left floating or unconnected; inconsistent behavior of the device may result.
See “Write Protect (WP#)” on page 16 for related information.
Autoselect Functions
If 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 DQ15–DQ0. Standard read cycle timings apply in
this mode. Refer to the Autoselect Mode and Autoselect Command Sequence sections for more information.
Simultaneous Read/Write Operations with
Zero Latency
This device is capable of reading data from one bank
of memory while programming or erasing in the other
bank of memory. An erase operation may also be suspended to read from or program to another location
within the same bank (except the sector being
erased). Figure 21 shows how read and write cycles
may be initiated for simultaneous operation with zero
latency. ICC6 and ICC7 in the DC Characteristics table
represent the current specifications for read-while-program and read-while-erase, respectively.
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 OE# input.
The device enters the CMOS standby mode when the
CE# and RESET# pins are both held at VCC ± 0.3 V.
(Note that this is a more restricted voltage range than
VIH.) If CE# and RESET# are held at VIH, but not within
VCC ± 0.3 V, the device will be in the standby mode,
but the standby current will be greater. The device requires standard access time (t CE ) for read access
when the device is in either of these standby modes,
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 completed.
I CC3 in the DC Characteristics table represents 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 t ACC +
30 ns. 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.
I CC5 in the DC Characteristics table represents the
automatic sleep mode current specification.
RESET#: Hardware Reset Pin
The RESET# pin provides a hardware method of resetting the device to reading array data. When the RESET# pin is driven low for at least a period of tRP, the
device immediately terminates any operation in
progress, tristates all output pins, and ignores all
read/write commands 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±0.3 V, the device
Table 2.
Bank
Bank 1
June 6, 2005
draws CMOS standby current (ICC4). If RESET# is held
at VIL but not within VSS±0.3 V, the standby current will
be greater.
The RESET# pin may be tied to the system reset circuitry. A system reset would thus also reset the Flash
memory, enabling the system to read the boot-up firmware from the Flash memory.
If RESET# is asserted during a program or erase operation, the RY/BY# pin remains a “0” (busy) until the
internal reset operation is complete, which requires a
time of tREADY (during Embedded Algorithms). The system can thus monitor RY/BY# to determine whether
the reset operation is complete. If RESET# is asserted
when a program or erase operation is not executing
(RY/BY# pin is “1”), the reset operation is completed
within a time of tREADY (not during Embedded Algorithms). The system can read data tRH after the RESET# pin returns to VIH.
Refer to the AC Characteristics tables for RESET# parameters and to Figure 15 for the timing diagram.
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.

Autoselect Mode
The autoselect mode provides manufacturer and device identification, and sector protection verification,
through identifier codes output on DQ7–DQ0. This
mode is primarily intended for programming equipment to automatically match a device to be programmed with its corresponding programm ing
algorithm. However, the autoselect codes can also be
accessed in-system through the command register.
When using programming equipment, the autoselect
mode requires V ID on address pin A9. Address pins
must be as shown in Table 5. In addition, when verifying sector protection, the sector address must appear
on the appropriate highest order address bits (see
14
Table 2). Table 5 shows the remaining address bits
that are don’t care. When all necessary bits have been
set as required, the programming equipment may then
read the corresponding identifier code on DQ7–DQ0.
However, the autoselect codes can also be accessed
in-system through the command register, for instances
when the Am29DL640 is erased or programmed in a
system without access to high voltage on the A9 pin.
The command sequence is illustrated in Table 12.
Note that if a Bank Address (BA) on address bits A21,
A20, and A19 is asserted during the third write cycle of
the autoselect command, the host system can read
autoselect data from that bank and then immediately
read array data from the other bank, without exiting the
autoselect mode.
Am29DL640G

To access the autoselect codes in-system, the host
system can issue the autoselect command via the
command register, as shown in Table 12. This method

Sector/Sector Block Protection and
Unprotection
Sector
(Note: For the following discussion, the term “sector”
applies to both sectors and sector blocks. A sector
block consists of two or more adjacent sectors that are
protected or unprotected at the same time (see Table
6).
The hardware sector protection feature disables both
program and erase operations in any sector. The hardware sector unprotection feature re-enables both program and erase operations in previously protected
sectors. Sector protection/unprotection can be implemented via two methods.

Sector protection/sector unprotection requires VID on
the RESET# pin only, and can be implemented either
in-system or via programming equipment. Figure 2
shows the algorithms and Figure 26 shows the timing
diagram. For sector unprotect, all unprotected sectors
must first be protected prior to the first sector unprotect write cycle. Note that the sector unprotect algorithm unprotects all sectors in parallel. All previously
protected sectors must be individually re-protected. To
change data in protected sectors efficiently, the temporary sector unprotect function is available. See
“Temporary Sector Unprotect”.
The device is shipped with all sectors unprotected.
AMD offers the option of programming and protecting
sectors at its factory prior to shipping the device
through AMD’s ExpressFlash™ Service. Contact an
AMD representative for details.
It is possible to determine whether a sector is protected or unprotected. See the Autoselect Mode section for details.

If the system asserts VIL on the WP#/ACC pin, the device disables program and erase functions in sectors
0, 1, 140, and 141, independently of whether those
sectors were protected or unprotected using the
method described in “Sector/Sector Block Protection
and Unprotection”.
Am29DL640G
June 6, 2005
If the system asserts VIH on the WP#/ACC pin, the device reverts to whether sectors 0, 1, 140, and 141
were last set to be protected or unprotected. That is,
sector protection or unprotection for these sectors depends on whether they were last protected or unprotected using the method described in “Sector/Sector
Block Protection and Unprotection”.
Note that the WP#/ACC pin must not be left floating or
unconnected; inconsistent behavior of the device may
result.

Temporary Sector Unprotect
(Note: For the following discussion, the term “sector”
applies to both sectors and sector blocks. A sector
block consists of two or more adjacent sectors that are
protected or unprotected at the same time (see Table
6).
This feature allows temporary unprotection of previously protected sectors to change data in-system. The
Sector Unprotect mode is activated by setting the RESET# pin to VID. During this mode, formerly protected
sectors can be programmed or erased by selecting the
sector addresses. Once VID is removed from the RESET# pin, all the previously protected sectors are
protected again. Figure 1 shows the algorithm, and
Figure 25 shows the timing diagrams, for this feature.
If the WP#/ACC pin is at VIL , sectors 0, 1, 140, and
141 will remain protected during the Temporary sector
Unprotect mode.

SecSi™ (Secured Silicon) Sector
Flash Memory Region
The SecSi (Secured Silicon) Sector feature provides a
Flash memory region that enables permanent part
identification through an Electronic Serial Number
(ESN). The SecSi Sector is 256 bytes in length, and
uses a SecSi Sector Indicator Bit (DQ7) to indicate
whether or not the SecSi Sector is locked when
shipped from the factory. This bit is permanently set at
the factory and cannot be changed, which prevents
cloning of a factory locked part. This ensures the security of the ESN once the product is shipped to the field.
AMD offers the device with the SecSi Sector either
fac t or y l ocke d or c u s t om e r l o ck abl e. T he fac tory-locked version is always protected when shipped
from the factory, and has the SecSi (Secured Silicon)
Sector Indicator Bit permanently set to a “1.” The customer-lockable version is shipped with the SecSi Sector unprotected, allowing customers to utilize the that
sector in any manner they choose. The customer-lockable version has the SecSi (Secured Silicon) Sector
Indicator Bit permanently set to a “0.” Thus, the SecSi
Sector Indicator Bit prevents customer-lockable devices from being used to replace devices that are factory locked.
The system accesses the SecSi Sector Secure
through a command sequence (see “Enter SecSi™
Sector/Exit SecSi Sector Command Sequence”). After
the system has written the Enter SecSi Sector command sequence, it may read the SecSi Sector by
using the addresses normally occupied by the boot
sectors. This mode of operation continues until the
system issues the Exit SecSi Sector command sequence, or until power is removed from the device. On
power-up, or following a hardware reset, the device reverts to sending commands to the first 256 bytes of
Sector 0. Note that the ACC function and unlock bypass modes are not available when the SecSi Sector
is enabled.
Factory Locked: SecSi Sector Programmed and
Protected At the Factory
In a factory locked device, the SecSi Sector is protected when the device is shipped from the factory.
The SecSi Sector cannot be modified in any way. The
device is preprogrammed with both a random number
and a secure ESN. The 8-word random number is at
addresses 000000h–000007h in word mode (or
000000h–00000Fh in byte mode). The secure ESN is
June 6, 2005
programmed in the next 8 words at addresses
000008h–00000Fh (or 000010h–00001Fh in byte
mode). The device is available preprogrammed with
one of the following:
■ A random, secure ESN only
■ Customer code through the ExpressFlash service
■ Both a random, secure ESN and customer code
through the ExpressFlash service.
Customers may opt to have their code programmed by
AMD through the AMD ExpressFlash service. AMD
programs the customer’s code, with or without the random ESN. The devices are then shipped from AMD’s
factory with the SecSi Sector permanently locked.
Contact an AMD representative for details on using
AMD’s ExpressFlash service.
Customer Lockable: SecSi Sector NOT
Programmed or Protected at the Factory
If the security feature is not required, the SecSi Sector
can be treated as an additional Flash memory space.
The SecSi Sector can be read any number of times,
but can be programmed and locked only once. Note
that the accelerated programming (ACC) and unlock
bypass functions are not available when programming
the SecSi Sector.
The SecSi Sector area can be protected using one of
the following procedures:
■ Write the three-cycle Enter SecSi Sector Region
command sequence, and then follow the in-system
sector protect algorithm as shown in Figure 2, except that RESET# may be at either VIH or VID. This
allows in-system protection of the SecSi Sector Region without raising any device pin to a high voltage.
Note that this method is only applicable to the SecSi
Sector.
■ To verify the protect/unprotect status of the SecSi
Sector, follow the algorithm shown in Figure 3.
Once the SecSi Sector is locked and verified, the system must write the Exit SecSi Sector Region command sequence to return to reading and writing the
remainder of the array.
The SecSi Sector lock must be used with caution
since, once locked, there is no procedure available for
unlocking the SecSi Sector area and none of the bits
in the SecSi Sector memory space can be modified in
any way.

The Common Flash Interface (CFI) specification outlines device and host system software interrogation
handshake, which allows specific vendor-specified
software algorithms to be used for entire families of
devices. Software support can then be device-independent, JEDEC ID-independent, and forward- and
backward-compatible for the specified flash device
families. Flash vendors can standardize their existing
interfaces for long-term compatibility.

Hardware Data Protection
The command sequence requirement of unlock cycles
for programming or erasing provides data protection
against inadvertent writes (refer to Table 12 for command definitions). In addition, the following hardware
data protection measures prevent accidental erasure
or programming, which might otherwise be caused by
spurious system level signals during V CC power-up
and power-down transitions, or from system noise.
Low VCC Write Inhibit
When VCC is less than VLKO, the device does not accept any write cycles. This protects data during VCC
power-up and power-down. The command register
and all internal program/erase circuits are disabled,
and the device resets to the read mode. Subsequent
writes are ignored until VCC is greater than VLKO. The
system must provide the proper signals to the control
pins to prevent unintentional writes when V CC is
greater than VLKO.
This device enters the CFI Query mode when the system writes the CFI Query command, 98h, to address
55h in word mode (or address AAh in byte mode), any
time the device is ready to read array data. The
system can read CFI information at the addresses
given in Tables 8–11. To terminate reading CFI data,
the system must write the reset command.The CFI
Query mode is not accessible when the device is executing an Embedded Program or embedded Erase algorithm.
The system can also write the CFI query command
when the device is in the autoselect mode. The device
enters the CFI query mode, and the system can read
CFI data at the addresses given in Tables 8–11. The
system must write the reset command to return the
device to reading array data.
For further information, please refer to the CFI Specification and CFI Publication 100, available via the World
Wide Web at http://www.amd.com/flash/cfi. Alternatively, contact an AMD representative for copies of
these documents.
Write Pulse “Glitch” Protection
Noise pulses of less than 5 ns (typical) on OE#, CE#
or WE# do not initiate a write cycle.
Logical Inhibit
Write cycles are inhibited by holding any one of OE# =
VIL, CE# = VIH or WE# = VIH. To initiate a write cycle,

COMMAND DEFINITIONS
Writing specific address and data commands or sequences into the command register initiates device operations. Table 12 defines the valid register command
sequences. Writing incorrect address and data values
or writing them in the improper sequence may place
the device to an unknown state. A reset command is
required to return the device to read 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 AC Characteristics section for timing
diagrams.
Reading Array Data
The device is automatically set to reading array data
after device power-up. No commands are required to
retrieve data. Each bank is ready to read array data
after completing an Embedded Program or Embedded
Erase algorithm.
After the device accepts an Erase Suspend command,
the corresponding ban k enters the erase-suspend-read mode, after which the system can read
data from any non-erase-suspended sector within the
same bank. The system can read array data using the
standard read timing, 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 the Erase Suspend/Erase Resume Commands section for more information.
The system must issue the reset command to return a
bank to the read (or erase-suspend-read) mode if DQ5
goes high during an active program or erase operation, or if the bank is in the autoselect mode. See the
next section, Reset Command, for more information.
See also Requirements for Reading Array Data in the
Device Bus Operations section for more information.
The Read-Only Operations table provides the read parameters, and Figure 14 shows the timing diagram.
Reset Command
Writing the reset command resets the banks to the
read or erase-suspend-read mode. Address bits are
don’t cares for this command.
The reset command may be written between the sequence cycles in an erase command sequence before
erasing begins. This resets the bank to which the system was writing to the read mode. Once erasure begins, however, the device ignores reset commands
until the operation is complete.
The reset command may be written between the
sequence cycles in a program command sequence
24
before programming begins. This resets the bank to
which the system was writing to the read mode. If the
program command sequence is written to a bank that
is in the Erase Suspend mode, writing the reset
co m m an d re tur ns th a t ba nk to the e ra se- suspend-read 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 the read mode. If a bank
entered the autoselect mode while in the Erase Suspend mode, writing the reset command returns that
bank to the erase-suspend-read mode.
If DQ5 goes high during a program or erase operation,
writing the reset command returns the banks to the
read mode (or erase-suspend-read mode if that bank
was in Erase Suspend).
Autoselect Command Sequence
The autoselect command sequence allows the host
system to access the manufacturer and device codes,
and determine whether or not a sector is protected.
The autoselect command sequence may be written to
an address within a bank that is either in the read or
erase-suspend-read mode. The autoselect command
may not be written while the device is actively programming or erasing in the other bank.
The autoselect command sequence is initiated by first
writing two unlock cycles. This is followed by a third
write cycle that contains the bank address and the autoselect command. The bank then enters the autoselect mode. The system may read any number of
autoselect codes without reinitiating the command sequence.
Table 12 shows the address and data requirements.
To determine sector protection information, the system
must write to the appropriate bank address (BA) and
sector address (SA). Table 2 shows the address range
and bank number associated with each sector.
The system must write the reset command to return to
the read mode (or erase-suspend-read mode if the
bank was previously in Erase Suspend).
Enter SecSi™ Sector/Exit SecSi Sector
Command Sequence
The SecSi Sector region provides a secured data area
containing a random, sixteen-byte electronic serial
number (ESN). The system can access the SecSi
Sector region by issuing the three-cycle Enter SecSi
Sector command sequence. The device continues to
access the SecSi Sector region until the system is-
Am29DL640G
June 6, 2005
sues the four-cycle Exit SecSi Sector command sequence. The Exit SecSi Sector command sequence
returns the device to normal operation. The SecSi
Sector is not accessible when the device is executing
an Embedded Program or embedded Erase algorithm.
Table 12 shows the address and data requirements for
both command sequences. See also “SecSi™ (Secured Silicon) Sector Flash Memory Region” for further
information. Note that the ACC function and unlock bypass modes are not available when the SecSi Sector
is enabled.
Byte/Word 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 internally
generated program pulses and verifies the programmed cell margin. Table 12 shows the address and
data requirements for the byte program command sequence.
When the Embedded Program algorithm is complete,
that bank then returns to the read mode and addresses are no longer latched. The system can determine the status of the program operation by using
DQ7, DQ6, or RY/BY#. Refer to the Write Operation
Status section 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 program
operation. SecSi sector, autoselect, and CFI are not
allowed. The program command sequence should be
reinitiated once that bank has returned to the read
mode, to ensure data integrity. Note that the SecSi
Sector, autoselect, and CFI functions are unavailable
when a program operation is in progress.
Programming is allowed in any sequence and across
sector boundaries. A bit cannot be programmed
from “0” back to a “1.” Attempting to do so may
cause that bank to set DQ5 = 1, or cause the DQ7 and
June 6, 2005
DQ6 status bits 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.”
Unlock Bypass Command Sequence
The unlock bypass feature allows the system to program bytes or words to a bank faster than using the
standard program command sequence. The unlock
bypass command sequence is initiated by first writing
two unlock cycles. This is followed by a third write
cycle containing the unlock bypass command, 20h.
That bank then enters the unlock bypass mode. A
two-cycle unlock bypass program command sequence
is all that is required to program in this mode. The first
cycle in this sequence contains the unlock bypass program command, A0h; the second cycle contains the
program address and data. Additional data is programmed in the same manner. This mode dispenses
with the initial two unlock cycles required in the standard program command sequence, resulting in faster
total programming time. Table 12 shows the requirements for the command sequence.
During the unlock bypass mode, only the Unlock Bypass Program and Unlock Bypass Reset commands
are valid. To exit the unlock bypass mode, the system
must issue the two-cycle unlock bypass reset command sequence. See Table 12.
The device offers accelerated program operations
through the WP#/ACC pin. When the system asserts
VHH on the WP#/ACC pin, the device automatically enters the Unlock Bypass mode. The system may then
write the two-cycle Unlock Bypass program command
sequence. The device uses the higher voltage on the
WP#/ACC pin to accelerate the operation. Note that
the WP#/ACC pin must not be at V HH any operation
other than accelerated programming, or device damage may result. In addition, the WP#/ACC pin must not
be left floating or unconnected; inconsistent behavior
of the device may result.
Figure 4 illustrates the algorithm for the program operation. Refer to the Erase and Program Operations
table in the AC Characteristics section for parameters,
and Figure 18 for timing diagrams.
Am29DL640G
25
Any commands written during the chip erase operation
are ignored. However, note that a hardware reset immediately terminates the erase operation. If that occurs, the chip erase command sequence should be
reinitiated once that bank has returned to reading
array data, to ensure data integrity.

Program Operation
Chip Erase Command Sequence
Chip erase is a six bus cycle operation. The chip erase
command sequence is initiated by writing two unlock
cycles, followed by a set-up command. Two additional
unlock write cycles are then followed by the chip erase
command, which in turn invokes the Embedded Erase
algorithm. The device does not require the system to
preprogram prior to erase. The Embedded Erase algorithm automatically preprograms and verifies the entire
memory for an all zero data pattern prior to electrical
erase. The system is not required to provide any controls or timings during these operations. Table 12
shows the address and data requirements for the chip
erase command sequence.
When the Embedded Erase algorithm is complete,
that bank returns to the read mode 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 the Write Operation Status section for information on these status bits. Note that the
SecSi Sector, autoselect, and CFI functions are unavailable when a program operation is in progress.
26
After the command sequence is written, a sector erase
time-out of tSEA µs occurs. During the time-out period, additional sector addresses and sector erase
commands 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 80 µs, otherwise erasure may begin. Any sector
erase address and command following the exceeded
time-out may or may not be accepted. It is recommended 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. Any command other than
S e ct o r E ra se o r E ra s e S u s p en d d u r i n g th e
time-out period resets that bank to the read mode.
No SecSi sector, autoselect, or CFI is available. The
system must rewrite the command sequence and any
additional addresses and commands.
The system can monitor DQ3 to determine if the sector erase timer has timed out (See the section on DQ3:
Sector Erase Timer.). The time-out begins from the rising edge of the final WE# pulse in the command
sequence.
When the Embedded Erase algorithm is complete, the
bank returns to reading array data and addresses are
no longer latched. Note that while the Embedded
Erase operation is in progress, the system can read
data from the non-erasing bank. The system can de-
Am29DL640G
June 6, 2005
termine the status of the erase operation by reading
DQ7, DQ6, DQ2, or RY/BY# in the erasing bank. Refer
to the Write Operation Status section for information
on these status bits.
Once the sector erase operation has begun, only the
Erase Suspend command is valid. All other commands are ignored. However, note that a hardware
reset immediately terminates the erase operation. If
that occurs, the sector erase command sequence
should be reinitiated once that bank has returned to
reading array data, to ensure data integrity.

In the erase-suspend-read mode, the system can also

Erasure Completed
Notes:
1. See Table 12 for erase command sequence.
2. See the section on DQ3 for information on the sector

Figure 5.
When the Erase Suspend command is written during
the sector erase operation, the device requires a maximum of tSEL µs to suspend the erase operation.
However, when the Erase Suspend command is written during the sector erase time-out, the device immediately terminates the time-out period and suspends
the erase operation. Addresses are “don’t-cares”
when writing the Erase suspend command.
After the erase operation has been suspended, the
bank enters the erase-suspend-read mode. The system can read data from or program data to any sector
not selected for erasure. (The device “erase suspends” all sectors selected for erasure.) Reading at
any address within erase-suspended sectors produces status information on DQ7–DQ0. The system
can use DQ7, or DQ6 and DQ2 together, to determine
if a sector is actively erasing or is erase-suspended.
Refer to the Write Operation Status section for information on these status bits.

WRITE OPERATION STATUS
The device provides several bits to determine the status of a
program or erase operation: DQ2, DQ3, DQ5, DQ6, and
DQ7. Table 13 and the following subsections describe the
function of these bits. DQ7 and DQ6 each offer a method for
determining whether a program or erase operation is complete or in progress. The device also provides a hardware-based output signal, RY/BY#, to determine whether
an Embedded Program or Erase operation is in progress or
has been completed.

Table 13 shows the outputs for Data# Polling on DQ7.
Figure 6 shows the Data# Polling algorithm. Figure 22
in the AC Characteristics section shows the Data#
Polling timing diagram.
DQ7: Data# Polling
The Data# Polling bit, DQ7, indicates to the host system
whether an Embedded Program or Erase algorithm is in
progress or completed, or whether a bank is in Erase Suspend. Data# Polling is valid after the rising edge of the final
WE# pulse in the command sequence.
START
Read DQ7–DQ0
Addr = VA
During the Embedded Program algorithm, the device outputs on DQ7 the complement of the datum programmed to
DQ7. This DQ7 status also applies to programming during
Erase Suspend. When the Embedded Program algorithm is
complete, the device outputs the datum programmed to
DQ7. The system must provide the program address to
read valid status information on DQ7. If a program address
falls within a protected sector, Data# Polling on DQ7 is active for approximately tPSP µs, then that bank returns to the
read mode.
DQ7 = Data?
No
No
During the Embedded Erase algorithm, Data# Polling
produces a “0” on DQ7. When the Embedded Erase
algorithm is complete, or if the bank enters the Erase
Suspend mode, Data# Polling produces a “1” on DQ7.
The system must provide an address within any of the
sectors selected for erasure to read valid status information on DQ7.
June 6, 2005
DQ5 = 1?
Yes
Read DQ7–DQ0
Addr = VA
After an erase command sequence is written, if all
sectors selected for erasing are protected, Data# Polling on DQ7 is active for approximately tASP µs, then
the bank returns to the read mode. If not all selected
sectors are protected, the Embedded Erase algorithm
erases the unprotected sectors, and ignores the selected sectors that are protected. However, if the system reads DQ7 at an address within a protected
sector, the status may not be valid.
When the system detects DQ7 has changed from the
complement to true data, it can read valid data at
DQ15–DQ0 (or DQ7–DQ0 for x8-only device) on the
following read cycles. Just prior to the completion of an
Embedded Program or Erase operation, DQ7 may
change asynchronously with DQ15–DQ8 (DQ7–DQ0
for x8-only device) while Output Enable (OE#) is asserted low. That is, the device may change from providing status infor mation to valid data on DQ7.
Depending on when the system samples the DQ7 output, it may read the status or valid data. Even if the de-

Notes:
1. VA = Valid address for programming. During a sector
erase operation, a valid address is any sector address
within the sector being erased. During chip erase, a
valid address is any non-protected sector address.
2. DQ7 should be rechecked even if DQ5 = “1” because
DQ7 may change simultaneously with DQ5.

RY/BY#: Ready/Busy#
The RY/BY# is a dedicated, open-drain output pin
which indicates whether an Embedded Algorithm is in
progress or complete. The RY/BY# status is valid after
the rising edge of the final WE# pulse in the command
sequence. Since RY/BY# is an open-drain output, several RY/BY# pins can be tied together in parallel with a
pull-up resistor to VCC.
If the output is low (Busy), the device is actively erasing or programming. (This includes programming in
the Erase Suspend mode.) If the output is high
(Ready), the device is in the read mode, the standby
mode, or one of the banks is in the erase-suspend-read mode.
DQ6 also toggles during the erase-suspend-program
mode, and stops toggling once the Embedded Program algorithm is complete.
Table 13 shows the outputs for Toggle Bit I on DQ6.
Figure 7 shows the toggle bit algorithm. Figure 23 in
the “AC Characteristics” section shows the toggle bit
timing diagrams. Figure 24 shows the differences between DQ2 and DQ6 in graphical form. See also the
subsection on DQ2: Toggle Bit II.

DQ6: Toggle Bit I
Toggle Bit I on DQ6 indicates whether an Embedded
Program or Erase algorithm is in progress or complete, or whether the device has entered the Erase
Suspend mode. Toggle Bit I may be read at any address, and is valid after the rising edge of the final
WE# pulse in the command sequence (prior to the
program or erase operation), and during the sector
erase time-out.
During an Embedded Program or Erase algorithm operation, successive read cycles to any address cause
DQ6 to toggle. The system may use either OE# or
CE# to control the read cycles. When the operation is
complete, DQ6 stops toggling.

After an erase command sequence is written, if all

The system can use DQ6 and DQ2 together to determine whether a sector is actively erasing or is

(that is, the Embedded Erase algorithm is in progress),
DQ6 toggles. When the device enters the Erase Suspend mode, DQ6 stops toggling. However, the system
must also use DQ2 to determine which sectors are
erasing or erase-suspended. Alternatively, the system
can use DQ7 (see the subsection on DQ7: Data# Polling).
If a program address falls within a protected sector,
DQ6 toggles for approximately tPSP µs after the program command sequence is written, then returns to

Toggle Bit Algorithm
June 6, 2005
DQ2: Toggle Bit II
The “Toggle Bit II” on DQ2, when used with DQ6, indicates whether a particular sector is actively erasing
(that is, the Embedded Erase algorithm is in progress),
or whether that sector is erase-suspended. Toggle Bit
II is valid after the rising edge of the final WE# pulse in
the command sequence.
DQ2 toggles when the system reads at addresses
within those sectors that have been selected for erasure. (The system may use either OE# or CE# to control the read cycles.) But DQ2 cannot distinguish
whether the sector is actively erasing or is erase-suspended. DQ6, by comparison, indicates whether the
device is actively erasing, or is in Erase Suspend, but
cannot distinguish which sectors are selected for erasure. Thus, both status bits are required for sector and
mode information. Refer to Table 13 to compare outputs for DQ2 and DQ6.
Figure 7 shows the toggle bit algorithm in flowchart
form, and the section “DQ2: Toggle Bit II” explains the
algorithm. See also the DQ6: Toggle Bit I subsection.
Figure 23 shows the toggle bit timing diagram. Figure
24 shows the differences between DQ2 and DQ6 in
graphical form.
Reading Toggle Bits DQ6/DQ2
Refer to Figure 7 for the following discussion. Whenever the system initially begins reading toggle bit status, it must read DQ15–DQ0 (or DQ7–DQ0 for x8-only
device) at least twice in a row to determine whether a
toggle bit is toggling. Typically, the system would note
and store the value of the toggle bit after the first read.
After the second read, the system would compare the
new value of the toggle bit with the first. If the toggle bit
is not toggling, the device has completed the program
or erase operation. The system can read array data on
DQ15–DQ0 (or DQ7–DQ0 for x8-only device) on the
following read cycle.
not gone high. The system may continue to monitor
the toggle bit and DQ5 through successive read cycles, determining the status as described in the previous paragraph. Alternatively, it may choose to perform
other system tasks. In this case, the system must start
at the beginning of the algorithm when it returns to determine the status of the operation (top of Figure 7).
DQ5: Exceeded Timing Limits
DQ5 indicates whether the program or erase time has
exceeded a specified internal pulse count limit. Under these
conditions DQ5 produces a “1,” indicating that the program
or erase cycle was not successfully completed.
The device may output a “1” on DQ5 if the system tries
to program a “1” to a location that was previously programmed to “0.” Only an erase operation can
change a “0” back to a “1.” Under this condition, the
device halts the operation, and when the timing limit
has been exceeded, DQ5 produces a “1.”
Under both these conditions, the system must write
the reset command to return to the read mode (or to
the erase-suspend-read mode if a bank was previously in the erase-suspend-program mode).
DQ3: Sector Erase Timer
After writing a sector erase command sequence, the
system may read DQ3 to determine whether or not
erasure has begun. (The sector erase timer does not
apply to the chip erase command.) If additional
sectors are selected for erasure, the entire time-out
also applies after each additional sector erase command. When the time-out period is complete, DQ3
switches from a “0” to a “1.” If the time between additional sector erase commands from the system can be
assumed to be less than tSEA µs, the system need
not monitor DQ3. See also the Sector Erase Command Sequence section.
However, if after the initial two read cycles, the system
determines that the toggle bit is still toggling, the system also should note whether the value of DQ5 is high
(see the section on DQ5). If it is, the system should
then determine again whether the toggle bit is toggling, since the toggle bit may have stopped toggling
just as DQ5 went high. If the toggle bit is no longer
toggling, the device has successfully completed the
program or erase operation. If it is still toggling, the device did not completed the operation successfully, and
the system must write the reset command to return to
reading array data.
After the sector erase command is written, the system
should read the status of DQ7 (Data# Polling) or DQ6
(Toggle Bit I) to ensure that the device has accepted
the command sequence, and then read DQ3. If DQ3 is
“1,” the Embedded Erase algorithm has begun; all further commands (except Erase Suspend) are ignored
until the erase operation is complete. If DQ3 is “0,” the
device will accept additional sector erase commands.
To ensure the command has been accepted, the system software should check the status of DQ3 prior to
and following each subsequent sector erase command. If DQ3 is high on the second status check, the
last command might not have been accepted.
The remaining scenario is that the system initially determines that the toggle bit is toggling and DQ5 has
Table 13 shows the status of DQ3 relative to the other
status bits.

details.
3. When reading write operation status bits, the system must always provide the bank address where the Embedded Algorithm

Notes:
1. Typical program and erase times assume the following conditions: 25°C, 3.0 V VCC, 1,000,000 cycles. Additionally,
programming typicals assume checkerboard pattern.
2. Under worst case conditions of 90°C, VCC = 2.7 V, 1,000,000 cycles.
3. The typical chip programming time is considerably less than the maximum chip programming time listed, since most bytes
program faster than the maximum program times listed.
4. In the pre-programming step of the Embedded Erase algorithm, all bytes are programmed to 00h before erasure.
5. System-level overhead is the time required to execute the two- or four-bus-cycle sequence for the program command. See Table
12 for further information on command definitions.
6. The device has a minimum erase and program cycle endurance of 1,000,000 cycles.
