The SD card interface can be disabled in Registry: Disable the SDCard driver.
The SD card detect pin and its polarity can be changed by adding the following values to the registry (
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\USDHC<X>] "CardDetectPin" = dword:X ; X = the SODIMM/MXM3 pin number of the CardDetect GPIO. 0xFFFFFFFF means no CardDetect pin ->fix inserted card. "CardDetectPol" = dword:Y ; Y = active polarity, 0: GPIO is low if card is available, ; 1: pin is high if card is available.
As you can see in the datasheets of each module from the Tegra family, there are some different pins which can be used for the SDIO interfaces. Colibri pinout provides one standard SD interface, Apalis pinout provides two. You can set the pinout of an SD instance using the GPIO multiplexing as described here. For example you can enable a second SD instance on Colibri IMX6 using those entries:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\USDHC2\Pinout_Default] "colibripin_99"="altfn=0" "colibripin_130"="altfn=0" "colibripin_106"="altfn=0" "colibripin_98"="altfn=0" "colibripin_69"="altfn=0" "colibripin_93"="altfn=0"
SD card clock frequency can be limited to a maximum value - this can be useful for debugging purposes to exclude hardware issues that may lead to bad signal quality at high frequency. The actual used frequency will be lower than MaximumClockFrequency.
ClockAlwaysOn has to be set to 0x1 if you want to prevent the clock being switched off if there is no communication going on. This is often used for SDIO WLAN adapters and similar devices.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\SDIO] "MaximumClockFrequency" = dword:01298be0 ; Maximum SD card clock (Hz). Default 52MHz. "ClockAlwaysOn" = dword:value ; default value 0x0
Currently, the SDCard driver does not support WriteProtect feature.
