The Decrement command is an 8-bit command. The
Decrement command can only be issued to volatile
memory locations. The format of the command is
A Decrement command to the volatile memory location
changes that location after a properly formatted
command (8 clocks) have been received.
Decrement commands provide a quick and easy
method to modify the value of the volatile wiper location
by -1 with minimal overhead.

operation requires that the CS pin be in the active state
Then the 8-bit Decrement command (command byte) is
clocked in on the SDI pin by the SCK pins. The SDO pin
drives the CMDERR bit on the 7th clock.
The wiper value will decrement from the wiper’s full
scale value (100h on 8-bit devices and 80h on 7-bit
devices). Above the wiper’s full scale value (8-bit =
101h to 1FFh, 7-bit = 81h to FFh), the Decrement com-
mand is disabled. If the wiper register has a zero scale
value (000h), then the wiper value will not decrement.

The Decrement commands only require the Decrement

After the wiper is decremented to the desired position,

specifications) after the last desired decrement occurs.
