Hello All, I've completed the second version of the XMOS dip but had a quick question. Although I have a pretty good understanding of the hardware requirements of the XMOS I'm still trying to grasp the programming environment. So I understand that the FLASH chip can be picked using the XN file but if I wanted to use a flash chip that had different memory size or speed, how would I go about interfacing with it? Do I just change some things in the XN file?
To use a flash device that is not supported by XMOS you will have to write a flash device description file. There are minimal requirements for SPI flash devices such as supporting the "slow read" command, so most flash devices can be used.
