Unfortunately it requires some special characteristics in the board
schematic, to not risk destroying the chipset.

"Warning: please do not try to use SF100 directly on the application
system if the scenario is not in the above two cases."

..from their manual. I agree with them, it could be dangerous to
drive the SPI chip while it's connected if you don't know exactly how
it is connected and that it really is safe on that particular board..
