Oommen, R. FPGAs are being widely deployed in various applications including industrial, commercial and military applications. Secure Digital is the most widely used portable memory standard.

Intel Converged Network Adapter XL710-Q1 EthernetSD Host Controller Extension

Its ultra-compact AMD SD Host Controller rugged architecture, simple interface, high security, low power consumption, reliable operation and interoperability have made it the de-facto solution for portable storage. The IP Core is developed, implemented and tested and the performance obtained matches industry standards. The Secure Digital technology, though developed just 12 years ago, have got overwhelming support from the industry and pushed all its competitors like Compact Flash, Smart Media, Multimedia Card etc backward. SD Cards are now being used in over products including AMD SD Host Controller cameras, mobile phones, GPS receivers and other hand held devices [1].

The IP Core can be easily integrated with the rest of the system. SD Card is a semiconductor flash based memory device which is well known for its simple interface, high bandwidth, low cost, greater security, low power etc.


The SD Card can easily be connected to a personal computer also. It employs a command-response mechanism. Commands are always initiated by the Host Controller and responded to by the Card. The Host Controller has two interfaces: The Host Controller assumes that both these interfaces are asynchronous. The Host Controller will synchronize signals to communicate between these interfaces [2].

System Architecture 2. The bus is designated to operate at a maximum operating frequency of MHz depending on the capabilities of the Card. Data blocks are always succeeded by CRC bits.

Single and Multiple block operations are defined. Data can be transferred using single or multiple data lines [3]. SD Bus Interface.


The standard register set is implemented. Internal FIFOs are provided for temporary buffering of ingress and egress data.

Every data transfer is preceded by corresponding command and response. The block diagram of Host Controller is given in AMD SD Host Controller 3. All commands are 48 bits long with a 6 bit command index, bit argument and a 7-bit CRC field. The Host Processor writes argument into the argument register and command into the command register in the Host Controller. The command path control block then forms a frame with the given data, finds and attaches a 7-bit checksum and transmits along the one bit wide command line to the card. Having received a command, the card checks for errors and replies with a response with the same index field.

The command path control block AMD SD Host Controller the response for CRC or any other error and stores in the Response register. Transmit and receive buffers help in temporary buffering. Data is accessed as a block, in an SD card.

In SDSC cards, the block size is not fixed, but default size is bytes. For write and read, the SD Host Controller supports both single block and multiple block access.


In single block read and write, only one block of data is transferred with each read or write command. In AMD SD Host Controller block access method, infinite number of blocks can be transferred by sending one command. For stopping a multiple block operation, a transmission stop command CMD12 is sent by the Host Controller.

SD/eMMC Host Controller

To perform a write operation, the data to be transferred is written to the Transmit FIFO through the Host Interface and data write command is issued. When the write command is sent by the Command Path Control block, the Data path AMD SD Host Controller block sends the data along with CRC and end bit.

The SD Card will check the received data for any errors and will give back a 3-bit CRC status indicating whether the data is successfully written or not. To perform a read operation, the AMD SD Host Controller command is sent. After receiving the read command, if no error is found, the SD Card sends the requested data through the data lines. The Host Processor can read it through the Host Interface.

Host Controllers

SD Host Controller AMD SD Host Controller was introduced in as a standard controller to manage SD Cards (SD Memory and SDIO). SD Host Controller was implemented. The IP Core is designed in accordance with SD Host Controller Specification and implements many advanced features. The IP Core is developed.
