Reading and writing data to some command-compatible SD memory cards (2GB or below) is possible, but customers who are not members of the SD Association and who have not entered into a Host/Ancillary Product License Agreement (HALA) (Note1) with SD-3C, LLC, should not use the software with SD memory cards. If SD memory card compatibility is required, use the SPI Mode MultiMediaCard/SD Memory Card Driver (Note2, Note3) product.

Notes

  1. For information on HALA, see the SD Association website.
  2. SPI Mode MultiMediaCard/SD Memory Card Driver is paid software that supports SD cards and SDHC cards (4GB and above), in addition to the MultiMediaCard.
  3. MultiMediaCard is a registered trademark of the MultiMediaCard Association (MMCA).

Note

About "RL78/G14: Audio Playback Demo Using RL78/G14 CPU Board": This demo shows how to efficiently read, ADPCM decompress or play back proprietary ADPCM audio data files stored on a MultiMediaCard or SD card. It is possible to play any audio data specified by the user by swapping out the proprietary ADPCM audio data files. The application note also includes circuit diagrams of the extension circuit required to implement the demo.
