Methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for accessing a logic device through a serial interface are provided. Embodiments include receiving, by the serial interface of the logic device, a first data access request indicating a non-linear address mode, wherein the first data access request includes: a non-linear address corresponding to a non-linear index specifying a plurality of non-linear addresses, the non-linear index associating each non-linear address with one of the plurality of registers; a data count indicating an amount of data to be accessed in the first data access request; and a page offset value indicating within a register, a starting page to perform the first data access request. Embodiments also include identifying in the non-linear address mode a location within the logic device based on the non-linear address and the starting page; and performing at the identified location, by the logic device, a serial transaction in accordance with the first data access request.
