General Description: How do I configure the XPLA2 devices?
The XPLA2 family supports the following configuration modes:
Master serial Master parallel -up Slave serial Slave parallel Synchronous peripheral
When the XPLA2 device is in either one of the master modes, it supplies the clock signal to the memory storage device. In master parallel mode, the XPLA2 device supplies the address as well.
In slave modes or the synchronous peripheral mode, the XPLA2 device does not supply a clock or initiate the configuration; rather, it responds to configuration stimulus. Details and timing diagrams for these configuration modes can be found in the data sheet for these devices at: http://www.xilinx.com/partinfo/databook.htm#cool
Of these modes, master serial is the most common configuration mode used.
