Arasan Chip Systems, the leading provider of IP for Mobile Storage Standards, presents its latest xSPI Master IP for access to NOR Flash Devices. This Universal NOR Flash IP supports a variety of NOR Devices and multiple Protocols, combines ease of use with high reliability, low power and speed under all conditions, including automotive applications.
The xSPI master IP supports the xSPI JESD251 standard from a standard AXI4 slave interface, and also features backwards compatibility support for Octal SPI, QSPI, DSPI, and SPI interfaces. Also supports JEDEC SFDP Standard. It is designed so that a user design may immediately access memory from the xSPI device in SPI mode, or alternatively issue a command to switch to any other mode. Additionally, a DMA command may be issued to copy memory from the xSPI device to anywhere else on the bus.
