SPI Host Interface

The device interfaces to an external host using the SPI. The CC3120MOD module can interrupt the host using the HOST_INTR line to initiate the data transfer over the interface. The SPI host interface can work up to a speed of 20 MHz.

Figure 8-8 shows the SPI host interface.

Table 8-4 lists the SPI host interface pins.

Table 8-4 SPI Host Interface
PIN NAMEDESCRIPTION
HOST_SPI_CLKClock (up to 20 MHz) from MCU host to CC3120MOD module
HOST_SPI_nCSCS (active low) signal from MCU host to CC3120MOD module
HOST_SPI_MOSIData from MCU host to CC3120MOD module
HOST_INTRInterrupt from CC3120MOD module to MCU host
HOST_SPI_MISOData from CC3120MOD module to MCU host
nHIBActive-low signal that commands the CC3120MOD module to enter hibernate mode (lowest power state)

Figure 8-9 shows the host SPI timing diagram.

Table 8-5 lists the host SPI timing parameters.

Table 8-5 Host SPI Timing Parameters
PARAMETER NUMBERDESCRIPTIONMINMAXUNIT
T1F(1)Clock frequency at VBAT = 3.3 V20MHz
Clock frequency at VBAT = 2.3 V12
T2tclk(1)(2)Clock period50ns
T3tLP(1)Clock low period25ns
T4tHT(1)Clock high period25ns
T5D(1)Duty cycle45%55%
T6tIS(1)RX data setup time4ns
T7tIH(1)RX data hold time4ns
T8tOD(1)TX data output delay20ns
T9tOH(1)TX data hold time24ns
The timing parameter has a maximum load of 20 pf at 3.3 V.
Ensure that nCS (active-low signal) is asserted 10 ns before the clock is toggled. The nCS signal can be deasserted 10 ns after the clock edge.
