Hi all;
I am trying to comunicate with an external flash memory with my STM32F429. I can see my signals in the oscilloscope . I see how my microcontroler starts the clock and write to the bus but the NSS signal do not change. It is always at LOW level. This is a problem with this flash beacuse it uses NSS signal to sincronice data.

I have configure the SPI5 chanel with the following code:

  hspi5.Instance = SPI5;
  hspi5.Init.Mode = SPI_MODE_MASTER;
  hspi5.Init.Direction = SPI_DIRECTION_2LINES;
  hspi5.Init.DataSize = SPI_DATASIZE_8BIT;
  hspi5.Init.CLKPolarity = SPI_POLARITY_LOW;
  hspi5.Init.CLKPhase = SPI_PHASE_1EDGE;
  hspi5.Init.BaudRatePrescaler = SPI_BAUDRATEPRESCALER_128;
  hspi5.Init.FirstBit = SPI_FIRSTBIT_MSB;
  hspi5.Init.TIMode = SPI_TIMODE_DISABLE;
  hspi5.Init.CRCCalculation = SPI_CRCCALCULATION_ENABLE;
  hspi5.Init.CRCPolynomial = 7;
  if (HAL_SPI_Init(&hspi5) != HAL_OK)
I understand that if I set NSS as a Hardware Output SPI peripheal is going to manage it correctly but it ramains in LOW state. I wanto to see the change from HIG to LOW state so the flash start to read or write into the com lines.

Could anybody help me?? I repeat that te SPI is working but if there is not edge in the NSS bit.
