The 8-Bit Host Bus (HB-8) Mode uses fewer data pins than the 16-Bit Host Bus (HB-16) Mode; hence, more pins are available for address. The HB-8 Mode is also slower than the General-Purpose Mode in order to accommodate older logic. The HB-8 Mode is selected with the MODE field of EPI Configuration Register. Within the HB-8 Mode, two additional registers are used to select address/data muxing, chip selects, and other options. These registers are the HB-8 Configuration Register and the HB-8 Configuration2 Register. See Figure 5-19 for a snapshot of HB-8 registers, modes, and features.
