The SD/MMC SPI core with Altera Avalon bus interface allows the designer to easily connect Qsys systems to standard MMC and SD card flash-based memory devices. The MMC and SD cards are universal, low-cost data storage and communication media widely used in consumer products such as digital cameras and cellular phones. The SD/MMC SPI core is fully compliant with Qsys and integrates easily into any Qsys system.For the Nios II processor, El Camino provides low-level driver routines for the SD/MMC SPI core. The drivers provide universal access routines for MMC and SD memory devices, eliminating the need for additional low-level code to read or write raw data from or to the SD/MMC cards.
Contact El Camino to receive a free evaluation version of the core. This comes with a Qsys based example design that can easily be adapted to any standard prototyping kit or custom hardware platform. Furthermore we provide two software examples, one for low level FLASH like access as well as one for high level FAT12/16/32 file I/O.
