LPSPI EDMA Help - MIMXRT1050 Board

I am using the MIMXRT1050-EVK board with Keilv5 Pro edition. I am working on a project which involves LPSPI. My goal is to use one of the LPSPI ports and EDMA to communicate with an external device. I am having issues getting the LPSPI EDMA set up, I am using an example from the Keil pack which uses LPSPI and FlexSPI for communication.


I have successfully got the LPSPI working in which I can transmit and receive bytes, but I don’t understand how to use the LPSPI EDMA.


I have found the fsl_lpspi_edma files and do not understand how to use the functions. The ultimate goal is to use the EDMA to send data through LPSPI involving arrays of data. Currently, I am trying to figure out how to use the LPSPI_MasterTransferCreateHandleEDMA function then use the LPSPI_MasterTransferEDMA to send data. The code below is the function which creates the LPSPI EDMA handle but I don't know where to get the correct parameters for my project. Any help is appreciated.


* brief Initializes the LPSPI master eDMA handle.
* This function initializes the LPSPI eDMA handle which can be used for other LPSPI transactional APIs. Usually, for a
* specified LPSPI instance, call this API once to get the initialized handle.
* Note that the LPSPI eDMA has a separated (Rx and Rx as two sources) or shared (Rx and Tx are the same source) DMA
* request source.
* (1) For a separated DMA request source, enable and set the Rx DMAMUX source for edmaRxRegToRxDataHandle and
* Tx DMAMUX source for edmaIntermediaryToTxRegHandle.
* (2) For a shared DMA request source, enable and set the Rx/Rx DMAMUX source for edmaRxRegToRxDataHandle.
* param base LPSPI peripheral base address.
* param handle LPSPI handle pointer to lpspi_master_edma_handle_t.
* param callback LPSPI callback.
* param userData callback function parameter.
* param edmaRxRegToRxDataHandle edmaRxRegToRxDataHandle pointer to edma_handle_t.
* param edmaTxDataToTxRegHandle edmaTxDataToTxRegHandle pointer to edma_handle_t.
