The SST26WF016B Serial Quad I/O (SQI) flash device utilizes a 4-bit multiplexed I/O serial interface to boost performance while maintaining the compact form factor of standard serial flash devices. SST26WF016B also supports full command-set compatibility to traditional Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) protocol. Operating at frequencies reaching 104 MHz, the SST26WF016B enables minimum latency execute-in-place (XIP) capability without the need for code shadowing on an SRAM. The SST26WF016B writes (Program or Erase) with a single power supply of 1.65-1.95V and significantly lower power consumption. The device’s low power consumption makes it the ideal choice for Mobile handset, Bluetooth, GPS, camera module, table, hearing aid and any battery powered devices. Further benefits are achieved with SST’s proprietary, high-performance CMOS SuperFlash® technology, which significantly improves performance and reliability.
The SST26WF016B default at power up is with WP# and HOLD pins enable and SIO2 and SIO3 pins disable allowing for SPI protocol operations without register configuration.

The SQI SuperFlash Kit 1 contains three Serial Flash Daughter Boards. The Serial Flash Daughter Board is an evaluation board designed to interface with the mikroBUS™ connector on the Explorer 16/32 Development Board (DM240001-2). It can also interface with the PICtail™ Plus connector that is located on the Explorer 16 Development Board (DM240001).
