The AK6420A is a 2048bit, serial, read/write, non­volatile memory device fabricated using an advanced CMOS EEPROM technology.

The AK6420A has 2048bits of memory organized into 128 registers of 16 bits each.

The AK6420A can operate full function under wide operating voltage range from 1.8V to 5.5V. The charge up circuit is integrated for high voltage generation that is used for write operation.

The AK6420A can connect to the serial communication port of popular one chip microcomputer directly (3 line negative clock synchronous

interface). At write operation, AK6420A takes in the write data from data input pin (DI) to a register synchronously with rising edge of

input pulse of serial clock pin (SKB). And at read operation, AK6420A takes out the read data from a register to data output pin (DO)

synchronously with falling edge of SKB.

The AK6420A has 4 instructions such as READ, WRITE, WREN (write enable) and WRDS (write disable). Each instruction is organized by

op­code block (8bits), address block (8bits) and data (8bits×2). When input level of SKB pin is high level and input level of chip select (CSB) pin

is changed from high level to low level, AK6420A can receive the instructions.

Special features of the AK6420A include : automatic write time­-out with auto-­ERASE, Ready/BusyB status signal output and ultra-­low standby

power mode when deselected (CSB=high).
