1.2. Features

EPCQ devices offer the following features:

  • Serial or quad-serial FPGA configuration in devices that support active serial (AS) x1 or AS x4 configuration schemes2
  • Low cost, low pin count, and non-volatile memory
  • 2.7-V to 3.6-V operation
  • Available in 8- or 16- small-outline integrated circuit (SOIC) package
  • Reprogrammable memory with up to 100,000 erase or program cycles
  • Write protection support for memory sectors using status register bits
  • Fast read, extended dual input fast read, and extended quad input fast read of the entire memory using a single operation code
  • Write bytes, extended dual input fast write bytes, and extended quad input fast write bytes of the entire memory using a single operation code
  • Reprogrammable with an external microprocessor using the SRunner software driver
  • In-system programming (ISP) support with the SRunner software driver
  • ISP support with Intel® FPGA Download Cable Intel® FPGA Download Cable II, Intel® FPGA Ethernet Cable
  • By default, the memory array is erased and the bits are set to 1
  • More than 20 years data retention
2 AS x4 is not supported in EPCQ512 devices. Refer to the Errata Sheet for EPCQ Devices for more information.
