START and STOP bit disable in SIMPLE SPI MODE



I'm working with and S124 and I would like to know if is it possible to skip the "start" and "stop" bits while sending data through the UART in SIMPLE SPI MODE.

I want to send ONLY 8 bits, not 10. 



  • If you use the SCI_SPI driver, it will only send 8 bits of data. There are no 'start' or 'stop' bits in SPI communications.

  • In reply to garyj:

    Thank you for your response garyj. It worked perfectly. Now, whit the SPI I can send 16 bits ignoring start and stop bit.

    Another advantage of SPI that I didn't know is that clock SCK only works while data is being sent, unlike UART, that works all the time:
