Comparing Spansion® S25FL116K with Macronix MX25L1633E
1. Introduction
This application note s e r v e s a s a guide to compare the Spansion S25FL116K with the Macronix
MX25L1633E 16Mb Serial Flash. The document does not provide detailed information on each individual
device, but highlights the similarities and differences between them. The comparison covers the general
features, performance, command codes, and other differences.
If common features are used in standard traditional modes, they may need only minimal software modification.
Minor pin-out and timing differences are reviewed as well.
The information provided in this document is based on datasheets listed in Section 9. Newer versions of the
datasheets may override the contents of this document.
2. Features
Both flash device families have similar features and functions as shown in Table 2-1.

3. Package and Pin-out
Both devices are available in 209mil 8-pin SOP and 6x5mm 8-SON packages with identical
footprints and pin-outs, with the exception of pin #7 which is a HOLD# pin on the Spansion flash
and is NC (Not Connected) on the Macronix flash. This should not be an issue if the HOLD#
function is not used. Please consult the latest Macronix datasheet for any possible package
additions.

4. Key Feature and Operational Differences
4-1 Status Register
Both devices use registers to control device behavior and report status. The Macronix
Status Register is very similar to Spansion’s Status Register (SR1) bit assignments
(Table 4-1).

Note1. Spansion QE bit is located in Status Register2, Bit1.
4-2. Block/Sector Sizes
The MX25L1633E and the S25FL116K have 32 uniform 64KB blocks that are each
subdivided into sixteen 4KB sectors.
4-3. Block Protection Mode
Both the Spansion and Macronix devices use BP bits to select groups of memory areas
for write protection. When Spansion’s Top/Bottom bit is in its default setting =0 (Top
Boot) and Macronix BP[3]=0, then there is some overlap in the groups of blocks
selected for Write Protection as highlighted in Table 4-2. Spansion uses additional SEC
bit in Status Register1 and the CMP bit in Status Register2 to create different additional
write protected regions not covered by Macronix BP bit settings. Not all of Spansion’s
available protected states are shown in Table 4-2.

Note1. Macronix BP bit 3 or Spansion TB bit.
4-4 Quad I/O Modes
Both the Macronix and Spansion flash enter Quad SPI mode when their QE bit is set to
1. Spansion’s QE bit is SR2[2] while the Macronix QE bit is in SR[6].
4-5. Secure OTP Differences
Both device families provide a secure One Time Programmable (OTP) area outside of
the main memory array for user defined storage. The sizes, features, and access
methods are different.
The S25FL116K has commands to directly read, erase, and program the OTP area and
does not need to explicitly open this area for read and write operations. Spansion has
three 256 Byte OTP regions.
The MX25L1633E operates in the OTP area using normal read and program instructions
after explicitly opening the OTP area with the Enter Secured OTP (ENSO) command.
While the OTP area is open, the main array is not accessible. When finished in the OTP
area, the Exit Secure OTP (EXSO) command must be issued to return to the Read Main
Array mode. The MX25L1633E OTP area has 64 bytes available for user data. The user
may permanently lock the whole OTP area to prevent new data from being stored there.
This area can optionally be programmed with user supplied data and factory locked by
Macronix.

8. Summary
The Macronix MX25L1633E and Spansion S25FL116K have similar commands, functions,
and features. The devices are command compatible for basic read, program, and erase (4KB
and 64KB) operations and are pin compatible if the HOLD# pin is not used. If common
features are used in standard traditional modes, they may need only minimal software
modification.
