SPI Master Mode

Hi, Does someone tried SPI master mode with NET + 50. I am confused in understanding the concept correctly. I must generate interrupt to transmit data ?? To write data in transmit FIFO, Interrupt is required ??. Anybody sucessfully tried SPI module ?? Please help me. Thanks Tom

you can transmit data whenever there is any free space in the transmit fifo. after filling the fifo to the top, you can either wait in a loop until it is free, or, the more effective, the serial controller can generate an interrupt when fifo is free to tell you when you can write the next data into it. you have the hardware reference?
