Implementing a MMC/SD/SDIO stack using CAM framework(Part 2)

Hi, In the next part lets look at other files which makes up the SDIO stack within mmccam framework. Please have  a look at previous part for more info: mmc_sdio.c

sdio_fill_mmcio_rw_direct is basically a wrapper for CMD_52 that’s needed to read/write directly into mmc register R5. Remember that register R5 in mmc, is used for RCA(Relative card address) management. It’s right time now to talk about different command types of SD/MMC/SDIO: broadcast commands (bc), no…

Detailed SDIO protocol Implementation

Reference: Wikipedia,  SDIO cards are intended to provide high speed data Input/Output on our regular sd card slot. SDIO cards are compatible with any sd card slot and will not cause any physical damage to the host if it’s not compatible with SDIO. When SDIO is plugged in a SDIO compatible host, in its early stage it is in low power mode and consumes very little current. Host identifies the SDIO card ,it’s power requirement, it’s…

A lot of things changes when you write your first code for commercially use. Software licensing is one of those. Usually while coding for my own projects, i earlier use to omit this. However, recently i was hit hard by this ‘vague’ topic of licensing. So, i decided to study in depth about different types of licenses for open source and propriety usage and here’s the summary: A software license is a type of contract between the…
