Can I interrupt the programming of a MAX<font size="-1"><sup>&reg;</sup></font>&nbsp;7000AE, MAX 7000B, and MAX&nbsp;3000A device without damaging it?

Description

Yes. MAX 7000AE, MAX 7000B, and MAX 3000A devices support a feature that allows you to interrupt in-system programming without damaging the device. All I/O pins will remain tri-stated until programming is successfully completed.

This feature is implemented using an internal EEPROM bit called the ISP_Done bit. This bit is automatically controlled by the programmer and is not a user-controlled bit.
