SD driver using SPI interface for i.mx rt 1050

Hi,

I want to use SPI as an interface instead of USDHC for SD card in i.mx rt1050 evk. The existing sdk example uses sdmmc with usdhc interface. Can anyone guide on how to add spi as sdmmc interface in mcuexpresso.

Thank you

Hello, 

Unfortunately, we don't have any official document or example project that demonstrates how to interface an SD card through LPSPI with the RT. However, you might use as a starting point the following community document that explains how to do this with a Kinetis MCU.

Hi

Beware that the KL26 has a different SPI to the one in the i.MX RT which means that the path would be to take the reference and ensure that it works correcty in the KL26. Then port the project to a different Kinetis part which has a compatible SPI. Then finally port to the i.MX RT.

Professionals requiring immediate proven solutions also have the possibility to use the uTasker project which supports SPI/LPSPI and SDHC on all Kinetis and i.MX RT parts without any further time investment.

Hi

The uTasker project supports utFAT on LPSPI of the i.MX RT 1050 (see simulation below where the SD card has been located on LPSPI1 - on 1060 but otherwise compatible).

Another possibility is to take a KL28 example since it has the same LPSPI interface as the i.MX RT uses. utFAT on KL28 is also available in the open source project version at https://github.com/uTasker/uTasker-Kinetis which works on i.MX RT without much porting effort. Below is the interface definition for the i.MX RT reference that would work with that version.
