SMC(Static Memory Controller)  is a new name for the memory controller for interfacing asynchronous memories to the BF60x processor. It is similar in its functionality to the AMI(Asynchronous Memory Interface) of earlier processors with some differences. The SMC can support 64MB of external memory connected to 4 different banks, each bank being controlled by the chip select signal.


The SMC can support these memory devices:

  1. Asynchronous SRAMs
  2. Asynchronous Flash Memories
  3. Flash Memories in Synchronous Burst Mode (NOR Flash)
  4. Flash Memories in Asynchronous Page Mode
  5. Asynchronous FIFO Devices
