Booting from embedded MultiMediaCard

Posted: 30 Sep 2008     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:MultiMediaCard  storage media  NAND flash  embedded MMC 

MultiMediaCard (MMC) technology provides low-cost data storage media for many mobile applications. MMC benefits include:

- Royalty-free design

- Industry-standard interface

- High-performance, 8-bit, 52 MHz I/O interface

MMC devices handle NAND flash chores such as wear leveling and error correction, freeing the host system from these tasks.

This technical note describes booting from an embedded MMC (eMMC) device#8212;such as Micron's Managed NAND#8212;and provides supporting documentation for designers incorporating MMCs in their applications. It draws on the MMC specification published by the MultiMediaCard Association and includes details from that specification.
