Question:

Can the Vi/o signal be disconnected while VCC is fully applied after the FLASH enters Standby/Auto Sleep Mode/Deep Power Down mode? 

 

Answer:

 

  1. There is no risk of damage to the FLASH when Vi/o is removed when the FLASH is either in full active mode, or Automatic Sleep Mode, or Deep Power Down mode. 
  2. The FLASH will enter an undefined state when Vi/o is removed and may not be operational. As well, the FLASH will enter the RESET mode when Vi/o is re-applied to the FLASH.
  3. There is no significant reduction of power consumption when Vi/o is removed during the Auto Sleep Mode or Deep Power down Mode.
  4. Removing Vi/o will not affect the FLASH from entering the Auto Sleep mode or Deep down Power mode. However, the conditions indicated in Step#2 may occur.
