M25P(4)                    Kernel Interfaces Manual                    M25P(4)

NAME
     m25p -- STMicroelectronics M25P family of SPI-connected flash devices

SYNOPSIS
     m25p* at spi0 slave 0

DESCRIPTION
     The m25p driver provides support for STMicrolelectronics' M25P family of
     SPI connected NOR flash devices.

SEE ALSO
     spi(4)

HISTORY
     The machine-independent m25p driver was written by Garrett D'Amore for
     the Champaign-Urbana Community Wireless Network Project (CUWiN), and
     appeared in NetBSD 4.0.

BUGS
     Some important bits that are vital for use as a mass storage device are
     still missing.  Specifically, there is no API to erase the device, and
     there is no support for device partitioning.
