The imp005 module requires an external SPI flash chip, which must be preloaded with impOS firmware. SPI flash sizes between 32Mbit (4MByte) and 128Mbit (16MByte) are supported.
Developers without the capability to load the image to a Serial flash can purchase these 64Mbit SOIC8W flash devices preprogrammed with the impOS image. These pre-programmed devices are intended to make prototyping quick and easy - in production, your flash supplier or manufacturer will generally offer bulk programming services.
For bulk programming, the required SPI image is available for download from the Electric Imp website.
Each package contains one imp005 Pre-Programmed Serial Flash device. The Pre-Programmed Serial Flash device is a standard JEDEC SOIC8W package - see the datasheet for exact dimensions.
