The SD receive control unit is used for read transfers for receiving data from the card. After the command is issued, the controller waits for the block of data to be received from the card. Based on the configuration of data lines (1-bit, 4-bit, or 8-bit), the data from the SD interface is assembled into bytes and eventually into a 32-bit word before it is written into the block buffer. The CRC16 is individually calculated on a per-lane basis and is checked against the received CRC16 at the end of block transfer before the END bit. In DDR operation, the receive control unit implements a separate CRC16 checker for each edge of the clock. The data is received on the receive clock. This receive clock is either the looped back clock (SD_CLK from the IO_BUF) or the tuned clock using delayed-lock loop (DLL) or delay (DLY) elements. A timeout check is implemented to ensure that the gap between the block is no larger than the required limit.
