is there a way to password protect the flash device using ASMI Parallel II (Avalon-MM) interface?

Hello everyone, I'm using ASMI Parallel II IP with an Avalon interface in a remote update project. the flash device is MT25QU256 and the FPGA chip is the 10AS066H2. i know that the MT25QU256 supports password protection but i couldn't find the corresponding registers in the ASMI Parallel IP document. Is there anyway to do it?

Hi, 

ASMI Parallel II IP can only set the registers whether to use BP(Block Protect) or not, and its BP type. 

You will also need to program the 8-byte password(which cannot be done via ASMI Parallel II IP)  into MQ25T NOR flash device, using C/C++ code block. 

This is the link to develop the code:  https://www.micron.com/-/media/client/global/Documents/Products/Technical%20Note/NOR%20Flash/tn2503_...
