i take your point, gordan, but there really is no comparison: up to a
500mhz bus, 8x chip-select lines and 32-bit addressing (not 1x
chip-select and only 50mhz) it's going to scream along so fast, even
with cheap-and-cheerful NAND ICs that i'm actually concerned about
staying within the 3.5 watt passive-cooled power budget.
let me see what they can get, then get the datasheets, see what
happens ok? if it's rubbish, well these ICs are interchangeable to a
large extent, it's not the end of the world.
