differences when migrating from Spansion® S29GL_N devices to equivalent Macronix
MX29GL_E parallel flash products from densities of 32Mb to 64Mb.
The information in this document is based on datasheets listed in Section 11.
Newer versions of the datasheets may override the contents of this document.
2. General Features
Both flash device families have similar features and functions as shown in Table 2-1.

Table 5-2 shows that both flash families have similar input sink and output drive characteristics.
The only significant difference is the Very High Voltage range (for accelerated programming) which
may damage the flash device if the maximum level is exceeded. Off-line programmers may
account for this and it is listed in the CFI Table as well at word addresses 4Dh and 4Eh.

12. Summary
Macronix MX29GL_E and Spansion S29GL_N Parallel Flash occupy the same PCB footprint and
have similar commands, functions, and features. The only notable difference is that Spansion uses
a slightly higher Accelerated Programming Voltage (typically used for off-line programming).
Spansion also offers a “V” model ordering option which has a wider I/O voltage range.
