ADM Box mode is a interleaved type of DMA where data from rows of equal
length and equal distance(bytes) between each other are transferred to
similar pattern of rows.
Each row length and distance between each row in destination pattern may
not be equal to source pattern.
Distance between beginning of any two rows are always greater than row
length.
Example:
If 4 rows of 16 bytes each are arranged such that distance between
beginning of any two rows are 32 bytes.
Now they can be transferred using BOX mode to destination pattern
arranged in 2 rows of 32 bytes each and distance between them can be any
lets say 128 bytes.

Source pattern:
4 data rows starts address 0th byte.

0-----16-bytes-data-----15
16 16 bytes void 31
32---------data---------47
48 void 63
64---------data---------79
80 void 95
96---------data--------111

Transferred to destination
Destination pattern:
2 rows
0----------32-bytes-data----------31
32 96 bytes void 127
128-------------data-------------159
