An improved memory device is operable in a plurality of protocols. The improved memory device has an interface circuit which receives communication signals from a communication bus. The interface circuit decodes the communication signals and generates a plurality of protocol signals and outputs one of the plurality of protocol signals in response to a select signal. A user selectable nonvolatile memory or fuse stores user selected protocol and generates the select signal corresponding to the user selected protocol. The memory device further comprises a nonvolatile memory and a controller for controlling the nonvolatile memory. The controller is responsive to the one protocol signal that is selected.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
