I think CS-don't-care means read-write operation for NAND device to reside
on the same memory bus as other Flash or SRAM devices. Other devices on 
the 
memory bus can then be accessed while the NAND Flash is busy with internal 

operations. This capability is very important for designs that require 
multiple
NAND Flash devices on the same bus.

CS# pin goes High enter standby mode to reduce power consumption,
i.e,. standby mode w/ CS# keep High, standby current: 10 uA (Typ for 3.3V 
NAND)
        otherwise, current is more than 1 mA.
i.e,. page read current, 25 mA (Typ for 3.3V NAND)

Is this "macron op done" flag good for multiple NAND devices on
the same bus ?

Any other way to control CS# pin? if user application is really
care of power consumption, i.e,. loT.
