    S29JL064J

    MiLe_2706411

      I am using the S29JL064J and are seeing intermittent write behavior.  We have three devices, two have undershoot on the WE and OE pins around -1.2V for ~ 20ns.  For these two we see about a 90% and 10% write success.  The third device does not have the undershoot and we see 100% write success.

       

      My question is:  Does the -2.0V undershoot for <20ns in the datasheet indicate that anything less the device will still function properly, or could our -1.2V undershoot be the cause of our write issues?

          Hello,

           

          Thank you for contacting Cypress Semiconductor.

           

          There may the possibility that the -1.2V undershoot may cause WRITE issues for the S29JL064J.

          Undershoot or overshoot in excess over 2.0V may cause irreversible damage to the FLASH memory

          device

           

          Please confirm that a decoupling capacitor (0.1uF) exists between VCC and GND, but placed

          as close to the VCC pin, as possible.

           

          Although the S29JL064J is a Simultaneous READ/WRITE device, lets first concentrate on successfully

          writing to the S29JL064J :  Is there any AC termination or Parallel termination that exists on the WE#

          and/or OE# input signal pin(s)?  If no, an AC termination or Parallel termination may eliminate or reduce

          the presence of undershoot/overshoot on the WE# and OE# input signal pins.

           

          Please verify and confirm at your earliest convenience.

              Hello sorry for the delay.

               

              I am asking on behalve of one of our customer so I do not have access to the board itself.  I passed on your information and appreciate the reply.
