Understanding the ATE SPI (serial peripheral interface)

Keywords:SPI ATE  serial peripheral interface  design systematic 

The SPI is a synchronous data-link protocol, originally conceived by Motorola. The communication occurs as a master/slave operation, where the master initiates the communication between one or many slave devices. This process allows data to be exchanged between the devices. The SPI interface has evolved with a number of different architectures, but they all use a common set of control signals and outputs.

This application note describes the Maxim ATE SPI interface and illustrates the systematic design approach of its architecture. Timing diagrams show how to program this interface.
