UHS-I support

Hi All,

We are trying to provide UHS-I support in SDHC driver "sdhci-esdhc-imx.c" in Linux 3.0.35 running on i.MX6 custom board.

PMIC(pf0100) VGEN4 LDO provides voltage required to the connector.

In esdhc_writew_le() whenever SDHCI_CTRL_VDD_180 is detected we are planning to change the VGEN4 LDO voltage to 3.3 to 1.8V which is required for high speed operation. And whenever normal SD card is detected VGEN4 voltage should again switch back to 1.8V to 3.3V.

How we can use the pfuze driver to achieve this voltage switching?

Thanks and Regards,

Vishakh

Hi Vishakh

switching procedure is described in SD specification, Figure 3-16

UHS-I: host send ACMD41, card replies if switch is allowed. If allowed

host send CMD11 to invoke voltage switch sequence.

Please refer to p.17 SD specification

https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/pls/pdf/part1_410.pdf

https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/pls/

also may be useful to look at patch

Regarding pmic usage please check attached Linux Manual

Chapter 17 PF100 Regulator Driver.

Best regards

igor

Hi Igor,

Does the L3.0.35_4.0.0 BSP driver "sdhci-esdhc-imx.c" supports UHS-I?

Awaiting for your reply...

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Vishakh

I am afraid no.

Hi Igor,

As I observed "sdhci-esdhc-imx.c" supports 1.8V switching using VSELECT. Is this not sufficient to support UHS-I functionality. If not what are the further modifications required ?

We have spent lot of time debugging UHS-I. Any help from you will be appreciated.

With Regards,

Vishakh

Hi Vishakh

it is not supported as answered by i.mx application team (please ask local

fae to get access to link below)

https://community.freescale.com/message/345405#345405

you can try latest linux releases, the later the better, to use that

functionality.

Hi Igor,

Thank you for the reply.

Here are few more details with the current status.

After CMD11 we are changing the PMIC LDO voltage to 1.8V in sdhci_start_signal_voltage_switch() of sdhci.c. We are trying this way(may not be the right one), as we are not using VSELECT of SDHC.

Once this voltage switching is done, driver is unable to receive the CMD2 response and giving timeout error. Attached the log file.

Please let us know your thoughts on this.

Thanks and Regards,

Vishakh
