13.7 Scanner Module Overview

The scanner allows segments of the Program Flash Memory or Data EEPROM to be read out (scanned) to the CRC peripheral. The scanner module interacts with the CRC module and supplies it with data, one word at a time. Data are fetched from the address range defined by SCANLADR registers up to the SCANHADR registers. The scanner begins operation when the SGO bit is set and ends when either SGO is cleared by the user or when SCANLADR increments past SCANHADR. The SGO bit is also cleared when the EN bit in the CRCCON0 register is cleared.
