Design Overview
This design example demonstrates the execution of basic read and write operations on the SPI flash
present on the SmartFusion2 Development Kit board. This kit has a built-in Atmel SPI flash memory
AT25DF641, which is connected to the SmartFusion2 microcontroller subsystem (MSS) through
dedicated MSS SPI_0 interface. The SPI flash memory transfers are performed using the peripheral
direct memory access (PDMA).
Read and write data information is displayed using HyperTerminal which communicates to the
SmartFusion2 MSS using the MMUART_1 interface.
rs
For more information on SPI, refer to the SmartFusion2 Microcontroller Subsystem User Guide.
Figure 1 shows interfacing the external SPI flash to MSS SPI_0.
