Quite some time ago, Digilent released the Pmod SD, which allowed users to add an SD card slot to an FPGA or microcontroller design with a 12-pin Pmod port. With the increasing popularity of microSD cards, I’m excited to announce the introduction of our newest Pmod, the Pmod MicroSD!
The Pmod MicroSD is a pass-through module which allows users to read and write to microSD cards of any size via the SPI protocol.
MicroSD card slot
Store and access large amounts of data from your system board
No limitation on file system or memory size of microSD card used
1-bit and 4-bit communication
12-pin Pmod port with SPI interface
Who would use the Pmod MicroSD?
The simplest answer would be, someone who needs a microSD card slot and doesn’t have one on the host board. A microSD card slot adds external memory storage used for applications such as data logging, and other applications that require flexible and removable file storage.
The Pmod MicroSD is compatible with the pre-existing SD card library in the Arduino IDE and we’ve provided an IP core to accelerate time to a bare metal or Microblaze Zynq design.
