Failed to include "QSPIFBlockDevice.h" and "SPIFBlockDevice.h" in MbedOS 6

Hi,

I would like to implement functions to read, write and erase the external 4MB NOR flash memory, W25Q32, on the NuMaker-IoT-M487 development board.
My compile tool is “Mbed CLI2” and I used MbedOS in docker.

First I imported a new MbedOS-6 project, followed the codes of this example and then config my “mbed_app.json” file as the following.

"NUMAKER_IOT_M487": {
    "target.components_add": ["QSPIF"],
    "qspif.QSPI_IO0":"PC_0",
    "qspif.QSPI_IO1":"PC_1",
    "qspif.QSPI_IO2":"PC_5",
    "qspif.QSPI_IO3":"PC_4",
    "qspif.QSPI_SCK":"PC_2",
    "qspif.QSPI_CSN":"PC_3"
},

But I always received this error message:

I tried to add “NUMAKER_IOT_M487” in the “mbed_lib.jon” of “COMPONENT_QSPIF” and tried to config the “CMakerLists.txt” file as the following:

target_link_libraries(${APP_TARGET}
    PRIVATE
        mbed-os
        mbed-netsocket
        mbed-cellular
        mbed-events
        mbed-storage-blockdevice
        mbed-storage-filesystem
        mbed-drivers
        mbed-connectiviy
)

Furthermore, I also tried two example, “mbed-os-example-sd-driver” and “mbed-os-example-filesystem” and both of them didn’t work on NuMaker-IoT-M487 board.
But I found that if I select other devices then the project can be compiled successfully.

These questions confused me:

  1. How to include the library properly in MbedOS6?
  2. Why different device have different result of compilation?
  3. How to use “QSPIBlockDevice” and “SPIBlockDevice”?

Do anyone have related experience can share with me?
I will really appreciate for suggestions.

Hello,

I am sure you need also QSPI for QSPIFBD. Just add also setting bellow to your mbed_app.json

   "target.device_has_add": ["QSPI"]

The configuration system - Program setup | Mbed OS 6 Documentation

That is caused by settings in targets.json by Nuvoton. Other manufacturers or specific boards could have different settings for various reasons.

I hope you found your answers

Hello @JohnnyK ,

Thank your very much for your reply.

I followed your suggestion and tried with the SPIFBlockDevice library, and then the project work properly now.
In the SPI test project, I used SPIFBlockDevice library as an external library or there would be the errors.

After SPIFBlockDevice, I tried to include and use QSPIFBlockDevice library in the same way I configed SPIFBlockDevice library.
But QSPIFBlockDevice library still can’t be used and the following are the error messages

I am confused that why SPIFBlockDevice library works but QSPIFBlockDevice library not and they are both based on BlockDevice.

SPIFBlockDevice library is enough for my project, and I will attach the link of repository about the SPIFBlockDevice library configuration when I finish it.

Thank you once again for your help!

Best regards,
