Question:

What is Simultaneous Read/Write Flash memory "code to data scalability"? 

 

Answer:

Code to data scalability refers to the different bank-split options available to best fit a system's code and data requirements. Some companies offer a single bank-split option. If a customer's code is too large to fit into one bank, the customer will not be able to use the device effectively. On the other hand, software-only solutions that offer exact code to data scalability will experience significant performance degradation (speed and power) due to the complex software required to make this solution work. Cypress solves this by offering several dual-mode operation bank-split options.
