NAND flash connection to i.MX27, i.MX31

Posted: 24 Mar 2009     Print Version  Bookmark and Share

Keywords:i.MX27  NAND flash controllers  Linux RedBoot 

The i.MX27 and i.MX31 NAND flash controllers have the capacity to support NAND flash in both 512 bytes/page and 2 KB per page. Samsung NAND Flashes in 512 bytes/page are usually the preferred proven solution, says Freescale. Due to the increasing size of the flash density, most NAND Flashes are now mainly available in 2 KB/page.

The aim of this application note is to show the compatibility of NAND flash controllers from two manufacturers other than Samsung (ST Microelectronics and Micron) with the NAND Flash controller used in i.MX27 and i.MX31.

To that end, a Linux RedBoot was slightly modified to boot from the tested NAND flashes, and that process and the results are described in this document.
