IMX6Q/D Muxed mode 16 bit NOR Flash interface

I am designing a IMX6Q/D/DualLite custom. I want to use NOR Flash as boot device and interfacing it using EIM. I need to use it in muxed mode putting external latches so that address and data can be latched and provided to the flash.


Address Bus - Address[0:15] is muxed with data and hence needs to be latched during the address cycle.Can EIM_LBA can be used enable the latching of the address bus.Address[16:25] is not muxed and available directly and may be given directly to the flash.


Data Bus- Data[0:15] is muxed with address bus and hence needs latching during data cycle .Since databus is bidirectional the buffer needs to have that information.Can I use EIM_RW for direction and EIM_EB0 and EIM_EB1 ored in order to enable the latch.


Please let me know if there is any other way of implementation for 16 bit Non-multiplexed flash interface. Is there a design implementation done so that it can referred. I checked Sabre lite and other schematics and they have non muxed implementation.
