Title: Method and apparatus for eliminating false data in a page mode memory device

Abstract: A flash memory (100) includes a core cell array (104), address decoders (116), one or more output buffers (110) and sensing circuitry including sense amplifiers which sense data at an address selected by the address decoders. A data switching multiplexer (108) is coupled to the output buffers to select a sense amplifier for a current word of data in response to a control signal (RWDEN) . A control circuit (106) is coupled to the data switching multiplexer to provide the control signal at a time to ensure the current word of data is provided to the output buffers.
