Propeller programming parallel flash chip
Has anyone used a microchip parallel flash chip such as SST 39VF010? I’m looking to use one as a ROM device with my propeller chip. I’m reading the data sheet for information on programming the chip, however, the example only shows programming for one byte. Ex..load data AAH @ 5555H then load data 55H @2AAAH
then load data A0H @ 5555H then load my data @ my address waiting for end of program..done.
I’m looking to program a buffer of 32K of data. Do I need to repeat all the load data steps for each data write or should the program loop after the three (setup) load data items and program each of my bytes then waiting for end of program? The data sheet also state “Before programming, the sector where the byte exists must be fully erased”. So I’m thinking the data would have to be programed in a buffer type loop, instead of one byte at a time; or it would fail writing multiply bytes in a sector
