1.2. Features

EPCQ-A devices offer the following features:

  • Serial or quad-serial FPGA configuration in devices that support active serial (AS) x1 or AS x41 configuration schemes
  • Low cost, low pin count, and non-volatile memory
  • 2.7-V to 3.6-V operation
  • Available in 8-pin small-outline integrated circuit (SOIC) package for EPCQ4A, EPCQ16A, and EPCQ32A devices
  • Available in 16-pin SOIC package for EPCQ64A and EPCQ128A devices
  • Reprogrammable memory more than 100,000 program-erase 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
  • 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 II, Intel® FPGA Download Cable, or Intel® FPGA Ethernet Cable
  • By default, the memory array is erased and the bits are set to 1
  • More than 20-year data retention
  • Supports JEDEC standard Serial Flash Discoverable Parameter (SFDP)
