  • Using Serial NOR Flash

    Hi,

    I have been playing with the GOLDELOX processor on the uLCD-144-G2 Module and I was interested in using the Serial NOR Flash on it. Has any one used it before instead of the SD Card ? From the documents, it appears that only MP25X series from micron is supported. This product is no longer available anywhere. Micron has N25 series as a replacement for it. Further, does the flash memory require a FAT implementation on it ? Or can I just store the images and videos at known address locations and use the media commands to access them ? I have looked through much of the available documents, but I havent found any good references on using a flash memory. If any one has any experience with this, please comment.

    Thanks,
    Rochak

    Any serial flash whose commands are compatible with the MP25X series should work, but since uSD cards are so much cheaper nobody has tried to use one in recent times.

    So why would you want to use one?

    How are you going to get data onto it?

    Since Goldelox doesn't use FAT formatting anyway, you just read and write data/sectors
