    It has been a while I was successfully able to get the M29W160EB flash to work on my target board. If you look over the spec of this flash at:


    you can see that their are alot of details to worry about when making a driver for this chip. Yes, I unfortunately did my own driver instead of just using the drivers available on the Numonyx site.

    I was wondering what flash chips are you guys using and if they are easier to use then the one I am using. The reason I ask this is because, I will need a bigger flash chip, and I was wondering if someone can reccomend me an easier flash than the M29 familly.

    I looked at the bigger flashes on the Numonyx site like the M29DW256G but it seems to be just as complicated as the M29W160EB and I don't really know if the driver I made for the M29W160EB would work for the M29DW256G ??? I would need to do some extensive testing to know this!

    I welcome all feedback pointing to new and easier flash chips that are available on the market.

    Thanks in advance
