How does the Block Erase command work on new SST26 flash memory devices(8 KB, 32 KB, 64 KB, Block Erase command)?

The block erase command, depending on the address you give, erases the block where the address is located in memory. Looking at the memory map of the SST26VF064B / SST26VF064BA datasheet, the block that is erased contains the address passed to the command.

For example, if you add an address which is found in a block of 8 Kb, that block of 8 Kb will be erased. If the address corresponds to a block of 64 Kb, the 64 Kb block will be erased.
