Also, the delay is the same to write one byte, as to write a 'block'. Most
of the chips support 16 byte or more 'block write' mode, so you can save a
lot of time if moving big amounts of data, by using the block write
You can also verify whether the write has finished by doing a 'start',
sending a command, and checking for ack. This allows the delay to reduce
in some cirumstances (the write time changes with temperature, voltage
The FRAMs are great though. I have used these for a couple of years on
various projects, and they are a godsend where you don't want the delays.
