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_35E
4-2. Block/Sector Sizes
The MX25L_35F 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 Individual Sector/Block Protection
Macronix has the ability to protect individual 4KB sectors in the Top or Bottom Boot sectors of the
array and 64KB blocks of memory in the rest of the Flash array. The methods used are
independent of the nonvolatile BP bit configuration in the Status Register. The Spansion flash does
not support this feature. See Macronix datasheet for detailed description.
4-5 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].
4-6. 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_35E 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_35E
OTP area has 512 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 MX25L32/6435E and Spansion S25FL132/64K 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 common features are
used in standard traditional modes, they may need only minimal software modification.
More significant changes are required if special features such as Erase/Program Suspend,
Write protection, or Burst Read mode are used.
