Dear Infineon Team,
could you please assist me with the issue below?
I could't find any clarifying information in the FM24W256 datasheet nor on https://community.infineon.com.
As I can see, the address pins (A0, A1, A2) are internally pulled-down. But my question is, may I connect these pins directly to Vdd (5V)?
On the CY8CKIT-040 evaluation board there are 0ohm pull-up resistors. On the other hand, on the CY15FRAMKIT-001 evaluation board there are 4.7kohm pull-up resistors.

Thank you for support.

Hi @Tomhe85,

As a pull-up resistor allows controlled current flow from the supply voltage source to the digital input pins, the address pins should be connected to Vdd using pull-up resistors. For minimum pull-up resistor value, please use the below formula:

Rmin = [Vdd - Vol (max)]/ Iol
= (5 - 0.4) V/3 mA
= 1.53 kΩ

So, you can use 4.7 kΩ pull-up resistors.

Thanks,
Ritwick
