Flash Memory Endurance in ADIS16xxx

Hi there,

 

I see the flash memory endurance specified as 100,000 cycles in the ADIS16488 datasheet.  I'm interested in what happens after this amount of flash memory writes.  Will the memory retention decrease from 20 years to something less than this?

In an application where the flash is written quite often, the flash memory endurance could be a limiting factor and it makes sense to understand the limitation.

 

Best regards,

-Paul
