Hi Vignesh,

> [PATCH v7 3/5] mtd: Add support for HyperBus memory devices
> 
> Cypress' HyperBus is Low Signal Count, High Performance Double Data Rate
> Bus interface between a host system master and one or more slave
> interfaces. HyperBus is used to connect microprocessor, microcontroller,
> or ASIC devices with random access NOR flash memory (called HyperFlash)
> or self refresh DRAM (called HyperRAM).
> 
> Its a 8-bit data bus (DQ[7:0]) with  Read-Write Data Strobe (RWDS)
> signal and either Single-ended clock(3.0V parts) or Differential clock
> (1.8V parts). It uses ChipSelect lines to select b/w multiple slaves.
> At bus level, it follows a separate protocol described in HyperBus
> specification[1].
> 
> HyperFlash follows CFI AMD/Fujitsu Extended Command Set (0x0002) similar
> to that of existing parallel NORs. Since HyperBus is x8 DDR bus,
> its equivalent to x16 parallel NOR flash wrt bits per clock cycle. But
> HyperBus operates at >166MHz frequencies.
> HyperRAM provides direct random read/write access to flash memory
> array.
> 
> But, HyperBus memory controllers seem to abstract implementation details
> and expose a simple MMIO interface to access connected flash.
> 
> Add support for registering HyperFlash devices with MTD framework. MTD
> maps framework along with CFI chip support framework are used to support
> communicating with flash.
> 
> Framework is modelled along the lines of spi-nor framework. HyperBus
> memory controller (HBMC) drivers calls hyperbus_register_device() to
> register a single HyperFlash device. HyperFlash core parses MMIO access
> information from DT, sets up the map_info struct, probes CFI flash and
> registers it with MTD framework.
> 
> Some HBMC masters need calibration/training sequence[3] to be carried
> out, in order for DLL inside the controller to lock, by reading a known
> string/pattern. This is done by repeatedly reading CFI Query
> Identification String. Calibration needs to be done before trying to 
detect
> flash as part of CFI flash probe.
> 
> HyperRAM is not supported at the moment.
> 
> HyperBus specification can be found at[1]
> HyperFlash datasheet can be found at[2]

Cypress has announced the inclusion of Cypress’ high-bandwidth 
HyperBus™ 8-bit serial memory interface into the new eXpanded SPI (xSPI) 
electrical interface standard from the JEDEC Solid State Technology 
Association
