AD9364 SPI Registers

Hi,

 

 

I have an AD9364, i tested it on a zc706, everything works fine.

 

Now, i would like to use it in a custom design, so i will use your driver for the software part.

 

And I also need to make an access to the registers through SPI in VHDL. I took an SPI IP from altera to achieve that but their implementation can only transfert 4 bytes at a time.

 

And I saw that the ad9364 SPI protocol support up to 8bytes (your driver uses max 6 bytes in a single read or write). So my question is do i really need to implement a 6 bytes atomic read/write to the spi registers, or will I just be ok with my 4 bytes?

 

I think for example to the RSSI reading, that takes 6 bytes, could i read it in two separate reads with no issue (like a refreshing between reads, therefore i would get a wrong value) ? same question with all other ad9364 registers ?

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks
