hello oliver


that chip is not special at all and can be replaced by (almost?) any
25-series flash chip with the same package (300mil 8-PDIP) and voltage
rating (2.7 - 3.6V).
of course there are corner cases, but in general there should not be a
big problem with other vendors. if you have found an offer that suits
you, you could ask us again...
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
