This statement is not correct. Not all flash parts require an erasure
writting a location that was previously written. For example, the
AtMel JEDEC parts will perform the erase of the sector (64 byte sector
I think) by writing a byte to a single location within the sector. It is
the writter to restore and data erased by the write.
I do agree that MOST flash parts require erasing the entire sector
writting to the sector.
