MPC5675K and parallel GPIO Pad Data In Register

We have an application running in decoupled parallel mode (DPM) on a MPC5675K.

A Samsung K9F1G08 Flash is connected via GPIOs where GPIO[0]..[7] are connected to I/O0..7 of the flash module.


If we read a huge amount of data from the flash device we get a lot of ECC errors and sometimes at least one byte is completely wrong.

While reading the data we use a gpio to toggle RE line of the flash device and read in the data via the parallel GPIO Pad Data In Register 0 (SIUL.PGPDI[0]).


We tried to read PGPDI[0] twice and the errors are gone like:


void psp_nand_gpio_read ( uint8_t * dest, uint32_t length )




  while ( length-- )



    /* Wait some time. */

    wait_nand( PULSE_WIDTH );

    /* Read data. */

    *dest = ( *(volatile uint8_t *)( SIUL_BASE + 0x0C40u ) );

    *dest++ = ( *(volatile uint8_t *)( SIUL_BASE + 0x0C40u ) );



} /* psp_nand_gpio_read */


If we do that we are able to read all bytes without error. If we read only once we will get errors.


The question is what can cause that behaviour?
