Figure 19-2. Code Read Optimization for FWS = 0
Buffer 0 (128bits)
Buffer 1 (128bits)
Data To ARM
When FWS is equal to 0, all the accesses are performed in a single-cycle access.
128-bit or 64-bit Access Mode
Code Read Optimization
An optimized controller manages embedded Flash reads, thus increasing performance when the
processor is running in Thumb2 mode by means of the 128- or 64- bit wide memory interface.
The Flash memory is accessible through 8-, 16- and 32-bit reads.
As the Flash block size is smaller than the address space reserved for the internal memory area,
the embedded Flash wraps around the address space and appears to be repeated within it.
The read operations can be performed with or without wait states. Wait states must be pro-
grammed in the field FWS (Flash Read Wait State) in the Flash Mode Register (EEFC_FMR).
Defining FWS to be 0 enables the single-cycle access of the embedded Flash. Refer to the Elec-
trical Characteristics for more details.
By default the read accesses of the Flash are performed through a 128-bit wide memory inter-
face. It enables better system performance especially when 2 or 3 wait state needed.
For systems requiring only 1 wait state, or to privilege current consumption rather than perfor-
mance, the user can select a 64-bit wide memory access via the FAM bit in the Flash Mode
Please refer to the electrical characteristics section of the product datasheet for more details.
A system of 2 x 128-bit or 2 x 64-bit buffers is added in order to optimize sequential Code Fetch.
Immediate consecutive code read accesses are not mandatory to benefit from this optimization.
