Your device is pin compatible to all other 256kiB flash chips with PLCC32 
housing. For example SST93SF020A or AM29F002 and many other can replace it.
The only thing to check is, if your board can program this device in place 
(means if the developer routed the WE# signal to the device). Otherwise you 
need an external flash programmer.
