Atmel Data Flash

Started by Unknown February 21, 2005
Hello,

Does anybody have info about the average write cycles of Atmel data
flash sectors before wear-out occurs?

Maybe I overlooked it, but I could not find anything in the data
sheets.

A mail to Atmel did not lead to any response.

Thanks for any reply.

I believe its 100,000.
I thought it was on the first page of the datasheet.
If not, it would definitely be in the electrical specifications section at 
end of datasheet.

Thanks for the reply,

I meanwhile found a note in AN-9 on Atmel's web site:
"Using the new Data Flash AT45DBxxxC"

100000 cycles are guaranteed, you are right.

Interestingly, there really is no info on that in the data sheets, at
least not in the AT45DB161 one.
