Quad SPI Controller IP

Description and Features

The SPI is a fully programmable SINGLE, DUAL, or QUAD SPI master/slave device that enables users to modify the polarity and phase of the serial clock signal SCK. The Hyper BusTM specification, xSPI (Expanded Serial Peripheral Interface - JESD251A) specification, and XccelaTM Bus Interface are all completely compatible with the SPI controller. The SPI Controller makes it simple to communicate with the majority of SPI FLASH memory on the market. Information shifting and sampling on serial data lines are synchronized via a serial clock line (SCK). It is a design that can be used in a range of process technologies since it is technology neutral. The SPI system is flexible enough to interact with a wide variety of peripherals from various vendors directly. The option of two essentially distinct clock polarities and two fundamentally different.
