Hello,

Thank you for your response and for providing the photo.

Yes, the date code format displayed on the topside of the package photo is, in fact, the newer date code format.

Therefore, it package marking appears to be authentic.  There may have been the possibility that residual life-time

purchase (factory-build) orders for the S29AL008D may have extend into 2010. 

Hope this helps...

Best regards,

Hello

Thank you for contacting Cypress Semiconductor.

Yes, it certainly possible for 2010 Date Code to appear.

However, a new date code format was initiated in 2008.

and the (old) date code format you had provided does

not reflect the new date code format.

Please provide the name of the vendor/distributor from whom the S29AL008Dxx devices were purchased,

as well as provide photos of the topside package marking on the device, itself.

Please provide this information at your earliest convenience...

Thank you in advance...
