MMC over SPI on iMX6 (i.MX6ULLEVK)

Hi, 

i'm working on a i.MX6ULLEVK board, and i'm asked to read an SD card through SPI (SDIO channels are are not available).

I managed to modify the dts and use some of the CSI signals like this  :

...

pinctrl_ecspi1: ecspi1grp {
fsl,pins = <
MX6UL_PAD_CSI_DATA07__ECSPI1_MISO 0x100b1
MX6UL_PAD_CSI_DATA06__ECSPI1_MOSI 0x100b1
MX6UL_PAD_CSI_DATA04__ECSPI1_SCLK 0x100b1
MX6UL_PAD_CSI_DATA05__GPIO4_IO26 0x100b1
>;
};
...
&ecspi1 {
fsl,spi-num-chipselects = <1>;
cs-gpios = <&gpio4 26 0 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>; //SS cs active low destroys everything
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_ecspi1>;
status = "okay";

spidev@0x00 {
compatible = "spidev";
spi-max-frequency = <20000000>;
reg = <0>;
};
};
.....
 
And i can see my ecspi1 on /dev and i see some signals. 
Is there a way to activate the MMC drivers on this SPI?
 
thanks a lot! 
Simone

Hi Simone

 

unfortunately spi mode is not supported by uSDHC module as described in sect.58.8.11 Protocol Control (uSDHCx_PROT_CTRL) in description of D3CD bit   i.MX 6ULL Applications Processor Reference Manual

""..card into the SPI mode, which the uSDHC does not support.""

 

Best regards

Hi Igor, 

huge thanks for your quick reply. 

Maybe i'm getting that wrong... But, i don't want to use uSDHC module. i'd like to add a new sd device, using SPI1 (or SPI2 it's the same) signals, removed from CSI module. To achieve that, I enabled MMC_OVER_SPI in yocto menuconfing (this is the reference https://www.kernelconfig.io/config_mmc_spi?q=&kernelversion=5.4.118&arch=arm) and i double checked the .config file and all dependecies are imported. 

my new device tree is: 

 

&ecspi1 {
	fsl,spi-num-chipselects = <1>;
	pinctrl-names = "default";
	pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_ecspi1>;
	cs-gpios = <&gpio4 26 0 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;  
	status = "okay";	
	/*
    spidev@0x00 {
        compatible = "spidev";
        spi-max-frequency = <20000000>;
        reg = <0>;
    };
	*/

	mmc-slot@0x00 {
        #address-cells = <1>;
        #size-cells = <1>;
        compatible = "mmc-spi-slot";
        reg = <0>;
        spi-max-frequency = <50000>;
        voltage-ranges = <3000 3400>;
        disable-wp;
        disable-cd;
    };
};​

 

It compiles without errors or warnings, and during boot sequence i can see the line: 

[ 2.284524] mmc_spi spi0.0: SD/MMC host mmc2, no WP, no poweroff, cd polling
[ 2.289852] sdhci-pltfm: SDHCI platform and OF driver helper
[ 2.301530] sdhci-esdhc-imx 2190000.usdhc: Got CD GPIO
[ 2.348249] mmc0: SDHCI controller on 2190000.usdhc [2190000.usdhc] using ADMA
[ 2.397736] mmc1: SDHCI controller on 2194000.usdhc [2194000.usdhc] using ADMA

there's the mmc2 instantiated. 

Besides, when the os is running, if I insert the sd card in my adapter, i can see these errors: 

[ 96.674783] mmc_spi spi0.0: no support for card's volts
[ 96.680106] mmc2: error -22 whilst initialising SD card
[ 96.686496] mmc_spi spi0.0: no support for card's volts
[ 96.697171] mmc2: error -22 whilst initialising MMC card

 

So i really think that there's a way out....

thanks again

Simone

Hi Simone

 

from log "sdhci-esdhc-imx" driver is invoked which do not support spi mode.

Did you find any solution for MMC over SPI?
