4. Key Feature and Operational Differences
4-1 Status Register and Configuration Registers
Both devices use registers to control device behavior and report status. The Macronix Status Register is
very similar to Spansion’s Status Register 1 bit assignments. Spansion’s other two Status Registers are
used to configure the device, and these advanced options are different than the Macronix Configuration and
Security Registers.

APPLICATION NOTE
Comparing Spansion S25FL1_K with Macronix MX25L_33F
4-2. Block/Sector Sizes
The MX25L_33F has uniform 64KB blocks that are each subdivided into two 32KB blocks and sixteen 4KB
sectors. The S25FL1_K has uniform 64KB main blocks subdivided into 4KB sectors. No change is necessary to
Erase block size or commands when migrating from the Spansion to Macronix flash, even though Macronix
offers an additional 32KB block erase option.
4-3. Block Protection Mode
Both the Spansion and Macronix devices use BP bits to select groups of memory areas for write protection. At
the 32Mb density, 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 4-4.
Spansion uses an 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 4-4.

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 S25FL1_K 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 MX25L_33F 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 MX25L_33F OTP area has 1024 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.
