Is it possible to use code banking with 32KB on-chip Flash ROM in combination with 128KB off-chip (external) Flash ROM? I'm planning to use a Philips P89C662 but my program will go beyond the 64KB limit. What, if any, are the special considerations I need to know about for this configuration?
Yes. You can use on-chip and off-chip Flash ROM in combination for code banking applications.
When you use the 32KB on-chip Flash ROM as the Common Area and the off-chip Flash ROM as 4 banks of 32KB, you may simply connect A15 and A16 of the off-chip Flash ROM to some port pins of the 8051 device. A separate latch for the bank switch address lines is not required since bank switching takes place in the on-chip Flash.
