Hi there,

We are using Spansion S29AL032D flash memory chip (4MB) for one of our project. We need some information about it. In datasheet it is mentioned that it supports 1,000,000 cycling endurance per sector typical.

The question is:

What does cycling endurance cycle means? Is it corresponding to 1 erase cycle or combination of erase cycle and write byte/word cycle?

Any help/guidance on this is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Because Flash Memory has a limited number of erase, it is the endurance of the number of erase.

This device is possible to erase 1000K times typical.

In addition, the max specifications of "Erase and Programming Performance" in datasheet can be guaranteed when erasing up to 1000K times.

Thanks and regards,
