Axi-Quad SPI

Introduction

The AXI Quad Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) core connects the AXI4 interface to those SPI slave devices that support the Standard, Dual, or Quad SPI protocol instruction set. This core provides a serial interface to SPI slave devices. The Dual/Quad SPI is an enhancement to the standard SPI protocol (described in the Motorola M68HC11 data sheet) and provides a simple method for data exchange between a master and a slave.

Driver Sources

The source code for the driver is included with the Vitis Unified Software Platform installation, as well as being available in the Xilinx Github repository.
