Explain about boot from SD card for EVK-RT1050

Hello experts,

I'm new to SD card boot for RT1050, I find an application note AN12107, it shows the steps about boot from SD

card using SDK demo.

I thought the application image should download into SD card, after boot, copy it to ITCM to run.

While in the guide  and code , I haven't find address related to SD card, only ITCM and DTCM space:

Could you please explain the theory of it .

Any suggestion will be appreciate.

Hi fan

one can look at boot flow described in Figure 8-6. Expansion device boot flow

i.MX RT1050 Processor Reference Manual
https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/reference-manual/IMXRT1050RM.pdf

Memories addresses in Table 1 AN12107, Figure 1 and Table 5

explaining boot process.

Best regards

Hello igor,

Thanks for your comment.

While I have read boot process you mentioned,  I just want to know the "address related to SD card, boot".

I don't know why when use SD card boot, place code into ITCM, not in SD address (Also I don't the address ).

Take hyperfalsh boot as an example , we put the code into 0x60000000(the address for Hyperflash) ,what about

SD Card boot.

Thanks a lot!

Hi fan

there is no "SD address" in booting process. ROM reads SD card

at fixed address Image Vector Table (IVT): IVT contains addresses for further boot.

Hi igor,

I check the BD file imx-itcm-unsigned.bd (AN12107 mentioned) "imx-itcm-unsigned.bd" ,

the IVT address is 0x1400, the entry is 0x2000, they are all ITCM address.

So I was wondering  what relationship with SD card.

Hi fan

actually this BD file does not have relation to read boot process,

this relates to *.bd files description, as these files are used elftosb utility.

These bd files are not intuitively understandable, so one can check elftosb documentation.

Suggest to check flashloader documentation.
