Comparing Spansion S25FL2-K with Macronix MX25L-06E

APPLICATION NOTE
Comparing Spansion® S25FL2_K with Macronix MX25L_06E
1. Introduction
Macronix offers MX25L_06E high performance serial flash in densities from 1Mb to 64Mb.
MX25L_06E and Spansion S25FL2_K devices have similar features, performance, and command
codes. This application note will compare the 4Mb, 8Mb, and 16Mb density devices and will explain
how to accommodate differences when comparing Spansion S25FL2_K devices with equivalent
Macronix MX25L_06E series flash products.
The information in this document is based on datasheets listed in Section 8. Newer versions of the
datasheets may override the contents of this document.
2. Feature Comparison
Both flash device families have similar features and functions as shown in Table 2-1.
