3.2.5. Maximum Allowable External AS_DATA Pin Skew Delay Guidelines

You must minimize the skew on the AS data pins.

Skew delay includes the following elements:

  • The delay due to the differences in board traces lengths on the PCB
  • The capacitance loading of the flash device

The table below lists the maximum allowable skew delay depending on the AS_CLK frequency. Intel recommends that you to perform IBIS simulations to ensure that the skew delay does not exceed the maximum delay specified in this table.
