T1022 SPI Boot

Hi,

 

We are working on a custom board with a T1022 processor and would like to boot from SPI flash memory.

 

We require 128MB of memory but the processor only supports 24-bit addressing when booting from SPI restricting addressable space to 16MB.

 

Is it possible to load the boot data using 24-bit addressing and then re-configure the SPI interface to use 32-bit addressing after so we can use 128MB of memory?

Usually SPI Flash does not support switching between 24-bit addressing and 32-bit addressing.

The T1022 PBL can be used for using 24-bit addressing mode and 32-bit addressing mode. See the Section 20.6.1 of the T1040 Reference Manual:

Customers often use the I2C or NAND or eSDHC or 16/24-bit addressing SPI memory for loading the RCW and pre-boot initialization commands.

Another 32-bit SPI Flash can be used for loading date and Linux.

Have a great day,
Pavel Chubakov
