Hi Michael ,
Sorry my previous message was incomplete
We are using WGI210IS Ethernet LAN Controller in our design . For the chip we have used Flash device from ISSI .The part no is IS25LP064. This we selected as we have previously used it in our earlier design and we also have it in our stock .
In the datasheet of the WGI210IS, they have mentioned few flash devices that are validated and compatible .So in that list IS25WP080DNLE is also mentioned but not IS25LP064
Both IS25LP064 & IS25WP080DNLE are from the same make ISSI. The only difference is in the input voltage range and the memory size .
I wanted to know if we are going with IS25LP064 will there be any issues while programming it or not?
Kindly suggest me
Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.
The suggested devices are the ones that fulfill with the requirements stated in section 1.4.4, on page 10 of the Intel (R) Ethernet I210 Datasheet document # 333016. This document can be found at:
Hi Maecenas ,
Thanks for the reply .
I gone through the list of devices suggested in that list . The problem is most of the Flash devices in the list are either Obsolete or not recommended for the new design .
So we have used Flash Device IS25LP064 from ISSI . The Flash List in the intel datasheet also consist of IS25WP080DNLE which is the also from ISSI .This chip is validated by Intel
The main difference between these two IC's is with respect to its supply voltage range . Typical VDD for IS25LP064 is 3.3V where as for IS25WP080DNLE is 1.8V
My question is if we use IS25LP064 will it work or with some software /Firmware changes can we make it work .?
Kindly suggest .
Thanks for your reply.
It is important to clarify that there are two parts to the flash compatibility list:
- Electrical compatibility with the chip.
- Whitelisted in Intel tools package.
In case that you do not plan on using Intel tools package, but the chips are electrically compatible, then you can use that chip if it is programmed offline.
If you wish to use the Intel tools package, that chip may come back as unsupported as each chip reports back an identifying marker.
