sdtnllchsm-8192

Hello,

Does anybody know some specs or has experiences with the "SDTNLLCHSM-8192" Nand-Flash Chip from SanDisk.

It is embedded in a Sansa-Fuze (a digital audio player from SanDisk) and is linked to a ARM-SoC (based on a AS3525 from AMS) over its SD (SecureDisc) Interface.

Pictures of the Flash and the DAP: flickr

The Rockbox-Team is currently working on porting a free firmware-replacment for the fuze.
We are currently able to initialize the flash correctly and read/write data to it - but only below ~1GByte. If we try to read data from >1GB the flash does not respond and a data-timeout occurs...

Does anybody know of a compareable (which uses a SD-interface) flash-chip so that we might find any documentation?

I (and the RockBox-Team) would be very glad, if someone could provide further informations.

Thx
Daniel

How can you know, if the memory has a SD interface? I doubt.

> How can you know, if the memory has a SD interface? I doubt.

We are currently "talking" to the flash over the SD interface from the ARM-SoC. And there are no other components on the PCB which could work as a interface-driver.

Also it would be strange that the designer would use the SD-interface of the SoC, as it also has a NAND-Interface if they would need a additional interface IC.

As I said, it works... but only up to the fist GB. Seems like we need to a page-switch function or kind of... But the SD-protocol does not specify such a function.

sd interface chip

I see. I just saw, that the flash has many pins, I guessed, it would be a regular NAND flash. So it's a flash with integrated
SD controller. Sandisk is advertising a family of iNAND devices, the part may belong to it.
