I am a bit confused about #define HOST_SHARE_MEM_BASE        (0xd0000UL) .

 

Also #define CORTUS_SHARE_MEM_BASE    (0x60000000UL) seems to be not used anywhere.

 

We connect Winc1500 module to our STM32 MCU and use SPI mode.

 

Do we need to config our MCU SPI DMA mode?

 

HOST_SHARE_MEM_BASE is address of wifi module internally, or memory address in MCU host?

 

Thanks

I am pretty sure HOST_SHARE_MEM_BASE is internal to the WINC15x0 module, which has a Cortus APS3 32-bit processor inside. If I search HOST_SHARE_MEM_BASE, I see four occurrences in spi_flash.c. You can trace any call down to nm_spi_write().

 

Unless you are sure there is a bug, you shouldn't modify anything in <spi_flash> folder anyway.

No, there is not a bug.

 

Thank for your sharing!
