BHE\ and BLE\ pins of a x16 part

Question: I want to access 16 bit data at a time from SRAM of a x16 part, how should I connect BHE\ and BLE\ pins?

 

Answer:

BHE\ and BLE\ pins are intended to use for byte level access of data as explained in datasheet, but for 16 bit access both the pins can be tied to ground (logic low signal). In this case, read and write operation will be controlled respectively by OE\ and WE\.
