Efficient Data Transfer With High-Speed Serial Flash Interface IP

Technology advancement and increasing data transfer rate, have made serial flash memories widely popular to store data on off-chip locations. Traditionally, flash memory devices use a primary controller to interface with the CPU and get the data from the memory device. For large amounts of data, the communication with the CPU is mostly performed by the external Direct Memory Access (DMA) contro... » read more

Resetting Serial Memory When A System Failure Occurs

Stability is an important consideration in embedded design, but electronic systems can suffer malfunctions triggered by a myriad of root causes. These include poor signal integrity, power spikes, software errors, and erroneous user interaction, just to name a few. These anomalies, in turn, can lead to inconsistent system operation or can even cause the system to hang. Although the list of po... » read more
