ESP32 Datasheet 3.1.3 External Flash and SRAM

"ESP32 supports up to 128 Mbits of external DUAL or QUAD SPI Flash memory"

The SRAM issue:
On the IO_MUX page where is the address and data pins for a SRAM chip? How do I tell the memory controller?
Am I not looking in the right PDF?
:lol: I just downloaded everything earlier this morning and now you've pointed to version 1.1 !
Update: The link points to a page where the labels have rev numbers but the documentation is the same.
Can you throw me a hint which PDF contains the description on GPIO Mapping?
Thanks

Technical reference manual section 4 and pin list document. SRAM would use SPI0. I don't know if it is fully supported yet in software. https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/bl ... 2/spiram.h

SPIRAM:
MR25H40MDF 4M as 512KX8 $21.82 qty 1
Earlier I had read we could add external SRAM as IRAM... I don't think so, maybe after it's moved into IRAM but this SPIRAM stuff is painful to work with. It has 1 byte writes, after you set it up and 40 clock cycles later your done. I could see it as a buffer to save the flash from being over used, maybe chaining DMA to the SPI....

For now, external SRAM is only really usable by either using it as a generic external SPI device or by using a SPI channel with DMA to essentially copy data to or from it. In theory, we also have a way to map 4MB of SRAM into into the D-bus (so you can basically use it in the same way as you can use DRAM that is inside the ESP32) but there's something funny going on with that; it'll probably cost us 2 to 3 months to fix this.
