The logiSDHC is the Secure Digital (SD) card Host Controller IP core from the Xylon logicBRICKS IP core library. It is designed to transfer data from the system memory to the SD card's data bus, and vice versa. Implemented DMA mechanism enables a fast data transfer requiring minimal CPU activities. The logiSDHC IP core is SD Host Controller Standard Specification Version 2.00 compliant. The IP supports non-DMA, standard DMA and Xylon's proprietary DMA transfers, and enables expansion of embedded systems based on AMD FPGA devices by mass storage capabilities. The logiSDHC supports ARM AMBA AXI4 bus and can be implemented in the latest AMD Series 7 FPGA, like the Kintex™ 7 FPGA. The logiSDHC is, like the other IP cores from the Xylon logicBRICKS IP library, fully embedded into the AMD Vivado IP Integrator (IPI).

To enable easier and faster integration of the logiSDHC in FPGA designs, Xylon now ships the IP core with the FatFs file system. FatFs is a generic file system module that implements the FAT file system on small embedded systems. The original source code can be obtained from elm-chan's web site.
