I.MX23 Boot from SD

Hello, I'm developing a board using the I.MX23 and I want to boot from an SD Card. Do I need to write anything to the OTP memory to do this?

I am confused about the default behavior of the SD_POWER_GATE_GPIO and SD_POWER_UP_DELAY. Do most SD card require a power up delay? Or would I be fine without it? This board is for my own education so it does not need to be very robust.

Hi john

two OTP bit fields in HW_OCOTP_ROM0 should be burned for SD boot:

1. SD_MBR_BOOT

2. SD_POWER_GATE_GPIO

Bitburner can be used during development.

IMX_OTP_TOOLS : A set of tools for managing OTP bits on the i.MX23 and i.MX28.

Contains BitBurner.exe, the otp_burner.py and BitInit.exe.

Best regards

igor

Is it required that I burn any values? It would be much simpler if I don't have to write anything to the OTP memory.

for OTP values please read Reference Manual.

Unfortunately it would not be simpler for you without

write anything to the OTP memory

Okay, how exactly do I write to the OTP memory? Can I use the debug UART or USB? I haven't been able to find this in the documentation.
