Overview

The SD Memory Slave controller is designed to reside within SD Memory card. This slave controller provides simple and general-purpose 8-bit interface to user application. This controller handles the SD bus protocol on the card interface side and forwards only the data transfer requests to user logic interface.

Features

    Device Utilization and Performance

    Altera Cyclone IV E Logic Element combinational - 1804 Logic Element Registers - 1494 Embedded Multipliers 9 bit Elements -2

    Getting Started

    1. Helps to emulate the SD card in test card application 2. Core handles SD bus protocol on the card interface and provides simplified interface to user logic 3. Can be used as bridge core between SD memory to custom application 4. Core handle all the housekeeping tasks by itself without user logic intervention 5. Supports both the standard and High capacity operation
