Hope this post finds you good in health.
I have one old PCB hardware design with me. It use some SPI Flash as program memory. Now for the further production of the design, I need to find another Flash device, which should be available for further longer periods of time(as current one is obsolete).
I have searched many other fitting devices.
I made decision on the following parameters:
Package ( 8-SOIC)
Set of commands.
Every thing seems perfectly fitting. But Device IDs are different for the ICs I could find.
Now, the software is written both in C and Verilog (not developed by me). I couldn't find any reference to the the device ID.
The question is: For which thing this devices IDs are required and usually where that device ID may be residing in developed codes?
