@pinaz: Your description of the NVM as "(non-volatile RAM)" seems misleading...

Arrgggh! You are 100% correct -- this is totally my bad -- my mind wanders a lot while I'm writing -- I fully intended to say "...NVM (non-volatile memory)..."

Thansk for spotting this and bring it to my attention -- I just went back into the article and tweaked it accordingly.

Your description of the NVM as "(non-volatile RAM)" seems misleading.  The datasheet indicates the NVM is OTP (One-Time Programmable).  I'd argue the term "non-volatile RAM" generally applies to memory that can be reprogrammed with non-volatile retention of those changes.  This isn't applicable here.  Silego's varying use of terms "one time NVM", "NVM", and "OTP" in the documentation isn't helping.
