PLD-based SDIO host
handles higher capacities
QuickLogic Europe has enhanced its proven SDIO host controller solution with the ability to handle Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards
The host controller can be implemented in QuickLogic's PolarPro or Eclipse II programmable logic device families, and is part of the company's low-power connectivity companion device solutions that address the needs of handheld and embedded system designs. Secure Digital has become one of the leading standards for the Flash memory cards that are widely used in smartphones, personal media players, personal navigation devices and digital cameras.
The recent addition of SDHC to the SD standard underscores the strong demand for ever increasing storage capacity.
QuickLogic's SDIO host controller solution with SDHC support allows designers to easily connect high capacity SD cards to applications processors, and provides designers with a fast track for adding SDHC compatibility to products.
Target applications for this solution include high capacity storage for navigation systems that hold maps and point-of-interest databases, digital cameras required to hold images, and camcorders that use solid-state recording media.
QuickLogic's SDHC implementation is available immediately for SDIO host controllers implemented in the company's PolarPro and Eclipse II programmable logic families.
Contact the company for information on the supported operating systems.
The programmable nature of QuickLogic's solution also allows the host controller solution to be configured for attachment to the customer's processor of choice, and to offer a scaleable number of ports.
