Corruption in a Particular Location of nvSRAM even Though WE# is Pulled Up to VCC – KBA83102

Last Updated: 11/10/2014

Version: **
Question: What is the reason for corruption in a particular location of nvSRAM (typically 0x0000) even though WE# is pulled up to VCC?

Answer: Certain controllers/FPGAs may pull the I/Os low during their startup. As a result, the WE# may be pulled low by the controller/FPGA. The pull-up resistance on the WE# may not be effective in ensuring a logic HIGH on the WE# pin. In this case, you must ensure that the controller/FPGA is configured to tristate its pins during the boot up phase.

The need for pull-up resistance on the WE# of the nvSRAM is explained in Pull-Up Resistor on the WE# Control Line of an nvSRAM – KBA83047.
