    I am looking for a way to program some SPI programmable flash memory (8pin smt) with a few MBits of data.
    The raw data is just in a text file, but I could probably put it into a binary.
    Basically I need a usb to SPI interface of some type. I am flexible about the model of memory chip if only certain ones are supported. I need at least 8Mbits though.
    I see some listed on ebay but I am not sure if good documentation/software exists. Is there a good way of doing this?

    It should be simple to cobble together a simple RS232 or USB to SPI controller on a micro controller, but for something ready to go out of the box look at things like the Bus Pirate which is well documented and should drop right into any project.
