Setting or Clearing the SAS Bit in the GPIFREADYCFG Register in FX1/FX2/FX2LP

Question: What is the difference in setting or clearing the SAS bit in the GPIFREADYCFG register?

 

Answer:

The SAS bit in GPIFREADYCFG controls how the RDY signals connect to the GPIF input logic. If the internal IFCLK is used to clock the GPIF, the RDY signals can make transitions in an asynchronous manner, i.e. not referenced to the internal clock.

Setting SAS=1 causes the RDY inputs to pass through two flip-flops for synchronization purposes. If the RDY signals are synchronized to IFCLK, and obey the setup and hold times with respect to this clock, the user can set SAS=0, which causes the RDY signals to pass through a single flip-flop.
