ADuC845: Use of P2.3 as GPIO while using SPI in master mode

Can I use pin P2.3 in ADuC845 as a general purpose pin while using SPI in
master mode?


Yes you can. The SS pin is only used when the part is used as an SPI slave
If the part is used as a Master device then the SS functionality is not
required and P2.3 can be used according to the alternate options given in the
Datasheet...T2 input or standard digital port pin.
