DS21144D-page 3 24LC32A 2.0 FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION The 24LC32A supports a Bi-directional 2-wire bus and data transmission protocol. A device that sends data onto the bus is defined as transmitter, and a device receiving data as receiver. The bus must be controlled by a master device which generates the Serial Clock (SCL), controls the bus access, and generates the START and STOP conditions, while the 24LC32A works as slave. Both master and slave can operate as transmitter or receiver but the master device determines which mode is activated. 3.0 BUS CHARACTERISTICS 3.4 Data Valid (D) The state of the data line represents valid data when, after a START condition, the data line is stable for the duration of the HIGH period of the clock signal. The data on the line must be changed during the LOW period of the clock signal. There is one clock pulse per bit of data. Each data transfer is initiated with a START condition and terminated with a STOP condition. The number of the data bytes transferred between the START and STOP conditions is determined by the master device. The following bus protocol has been defined: 3.5 • Data transfer may be initiated only when the bus is not busy. • During data transfer, the data line must remain stable whenever the clock line is HIGH. Changes in the data line while the clock line is HIGH will be interpreted as a START or STOP condition. Each receiving device, when addressed, is obliged to generate an acknowledge signal after the reception of each byte. The master device must generate an extra clock pulse which is associated with this acknowledge bit. Note: Accordingly, the following bus conditions have been defined (Figure 3-1). 3.1 Bus not Busy (A) Both data and clock lines remain HIGH. 3.2 Start Data Transfer (B) A HIGH to LOW transition of the SDA line while the clock (SCL) is HIGH determines a START condition. All commands must be preceded by a START condition. 3.3 Stop Data Transfer (C) Acknowledge The 24LC32A does not generate any acknowledge bits if an internal programming cycle is in progress. A device that acknowledges must pull down the SDA line during the acknowledge clock pulse in such a way that the SDA line is stable LOW during the HIGH period of the acknowledge related clock pulse. Of course, setup and hold times must be taken into account. During reads, a master must signal an end of data to the slave by NOT generating an acknowledge bit on the last byte that has been clocked out of the slave. In this case, the slave (24LC32A) will leave the data line HIGH to enable the master to generate the STOP condition. A LOW to HIGH transition of the SDA line while the clock (SCL) is HIGH determines a STOP condition. All operations must be ended with a STOP condition. FIGURE 3-1: (A) DATA TRANSFER SEQUENCE ON THE SERIAL BUS (B) (D) (D) (C) (A) SCL SDA START CONDITION DS21144D-page 4 ADDRESS OR DATA ACKNOWLEDGE ALLOWED VALID TO CHANGE STOP CONDITION 1999 Microchip Technology Inc. 24LC32A 3.6 Device Addressing Following the start condition, the 24LC32A monitors the SDA bus checking the device type identifier being transmitted. Upon receiving a 1010 code and appropriate device select bits, the slave device outputs an acknowledge signal on the SDA line. Depending on the state of the R/W bit, the 24LC32A will select a read or write operation. A control byte is the first byte received following the start condition from the master device. The control byte consists of a 4-bit control code; for the 24LC32A this is set as 1010 binary for read and write (R/W) operations. The next three bits of the control byte are the device select bits (A2, A1, A0). They are used by the master device to select which of the eight devices are to be accessed. These bits are in effect the three most significant bits of the word address. The last bit of the control byte defines the operation to be performed. When set to a one a read operation is selected, and when set to a zero a write operation is selected. The next two bytes received define the address of the first data byte (Figure 3-3). Because only A11...A0 are used, the upper four address bits must be zeros. The most significant bit of the most significant byte of the address is transferred first.

DS21144D-page 5 24LC32A 4.0 WRITE OPERATION 4.2 4.1 Byte Write The write control byte, word address and the first data byte are transmitted to the 24LC32A in the same way as in a byte write. But instead of generating a stop condition, the master transmits up to 32 bytes which are temporarily stored in the on-chip page buffer and will be written into memory after the master has transmitted a stop condition. After receipt of each word, the five lower address pointer bits are internally incremented by one. If the master should transmit more than 32 bytes prior to generating the stop condition, the address counter will roll over and the previously received data will be overwritten. As with the byte write operation, once the stop condition is received, an internal write cycle will begin. (Figure 4-2). Following the start condition from the master, the control code (four bits), the device select (three bits), and the R/W bit which is a logic low are clocked onto the bus by the master transmitter. This indicates to the addressed slave receiver that a byte with a word address will follow after it has generated an acknowledge bit during the ninth clock cycle. Therefore, the next byte transmitted by the master is the high-order byte of the word address and will be written into the address pointer of the 24LC32A. The next byte is the least significant address byte. After receiving another acknowledge signal from the 24LC32A the master device will transmit the data word to be written into the addressed memory location. Page Write Note: Page write operations are limited to writing bytes within a single physical page, regardless of the number of bytes actually being written. Physical page boundaries start at addresses that are integer multiples of the page buffer size (or ‘page size’) and end at addresses that are integer multiples of [page size - 1]. If a page write command attempts to write across a physical page boundary, the result is that the data wraps around to the beginning of the current page (overwriting data previously stored there), instead of being written to the next page as might be expected. It is therefore necessary for the application software to prevent page write operations that would attempt to cross a page boundary. The 24LC32A acknowledges again and the master generates a stop condition. This initiates the internal write cycle, and during this time the 24LC32A will not generate acknowledge signals (Figure 4-1).

Once the stop condition for a write command has been issued from the master, the device initiates the internally timed write cycle. Acknowledge Polling (ACK) can be initiated immediately. This involves the master sending a start condition followed by the control byte for a write command (R/W = 0). If the device is still busy with the write cycle, then NO ACK will be returned. If the cycle is complete, then the device will return the ACK and the master can then proceed with the next read or write command. See Figure 5-1 for flow diagram. FIGURE 5-1: ACKNOWLEDGE POLLING FLOW Send Write Command 6.0 Read operations are initiated in the same way as write operations with the exception that the R/W bit of the slave address is set to one. There are three basic types of read operations: current address read, random read, and sequential read. 6.1 Send Start Send Control Byte with R/W = 0 Did Device Acknowledge (ACK = 0)? YES Next Operation 1999 Microchip Technology Inc. NO Current Address Read The 24LC32A contains an address counter that maintains the address of the last word accessed, internally incremented by one. Therefore, if the previous access (either a read or write operation) was to address n (n is any legal address), the next current address read operation would access data from address n + 1. Upon receipt of the slave address with R/W bit set to one, the 24LC32A issues an acknowledge and transmits the eight bit data word. The master will not acknowledge the transfer but does generate a stop condition and the 24LC32A discontinues transmission (Figure 6-1). 6.2 Send Stop Condition to Initiate Write Cycle READ OPERATION Random Read Random read operations allow the master to access any memory location in a random manner. To perform this type of read operation, first the word address must be set. This is done by sending the word address to the 24LC32A as part of a write operation (R/W bit set to zero). After the word address is sent, the master generates a start condition following the acknowledge. This terminates the write operation, but not before the internal address pointer is set. Then the master issues the control byte again but with the R/W bit set to a one. The 24LC32A will then issue an acknowledge and transmit the 8-bit data word. The master will not acknowledge the transfer but does generate a stop condition which causes the 24LC32A to discontinue transmission (Figure 6-2). 6.3 Contiguous Addressing Across Multiple Devices The device select bits A2, A1, A0 can be used to expand the contiguous address space for up to 256K bits by adding up to eight 24LC32A’s on the same bus. In this case, software can use A0 of the control byte as address bit A12, A1 as address bit A13, and A2 as address bit A14. DS21144D-page 7 24LC32A 6.4 Sequential Read To provide sequential reads the 24LC32A contains an internal address pointer which is incremented by one at the completion of each operation. This address pointer allows the entire memory contents to be serially read during one operation. The internal address pointer will automatically roll over from address 0FFF to address 000 if the master acknowledges the byte received from the array address 0FFF. Sequential reads are initiated in the same way as a random read except that after the 24LC32A transmits the first data byte, the master issues an acknowledge as opposed to the stop condition used in a random read. This acknowledge directs the 24LC32A to transmit the next sequentially addressed 8-bit word (Figure 6-3). Following the final byte transmitted to the master, the master will NOT generate an acknowledge but will generate a stop condition.

All I/O lines incorporate Schmitt triggers for 400 kHz (Fast Mode) compatibility. The A0..A2 inputs are used by the 24LC32A for multiple device operation and conform to the 2-wire bus standard. The levels applied to these pins define the address block occupied by the device in the address map. A particular device is selected by transmitting the corresponding bits (A2, A1, A0) in the control byte (Figure 3-3). 7.2 SDA Serial Address/Data Input/Output This is a Bi-directional pin used to transfer addresses and data into and data out of the device. It is an open drain terminal, therefore the SDA bus requires a pullup resistor to VCC (typical 10KΩ for 100 kHz, 2 KΩ for 400 kHz) For normal data transfer SDA is allowed to change only during SCL low. Changes during SCL HIGH are reserved for indicating the START and STOP conditions. 7.3 9.0 NOISE PROTECTION POWER MANAGEMENT This design incorporates a power standby mode when the device is not in use and automatically powers off after the normal termination of any operation when a stop bit is received and all internal functions are complete. This includes any error conditions, i.e., not receiving an acknowledge or stop condition per the 2wire bus specification. The device also incorporates VDD monitor circuitry to prevent inadvertent writes (data corruption) during low-voltage conditions. The VDD monitor circuitry is powered off when the device is in standby mode in order to further reduce power consumption. SCL Serial Clock This input is used to synchronize the data transfer from and to the device. 7.4 WP This pin must be connected to either VSS or VCC. If tied to VSS, normal memory operation is enabled (read/write the entire memory 000-FFF). If tied to VCC, WRITE operations are inhibited. The entire memory will be write-protected. Read operations are not affected. 1999 Microchip Technology Inc.
