The question is if bootROM will be able to boot from eMMC 5.0 - 5.1 version card ? We are designing product in which we are planning to boot from eMMC, RM says that uSDHC supports JEDEC 4.5 and as far as I know 5.0/1 versions are backward compatible with 4.5 so it should work. Could you confirm this ?
Thank you in advance
by saying that eMMC5.1 is not supported you mean bootROM won't be able to boot from eMMC5.0/5.1 cards or it will fallback to 4.5 standard and boot properly ?
The EMMC 4.5 or EMMC 5.0 /5.1 is backward-compatible with eMMC4.4, we can use it in eMMC4.4 mode to enable eMMC4.4 functionality and performance on the i.MXRT platform. Booting from an eMMC 4.5 device or higher version is not supported, boot ROM will fall back to the eMMC4.4 standard when a eMMC4.5 or higher version capable device is detected.
