EMMC_EN_N to drive LED

Wed Dec 06, 2017 8:54 pm

Can EMMC_EN_N_ pin in CM3 Lite be used to as a boot led that shows that the compute module is reading sd card data and booting? I am not using the usb boot option so will it work if I just connect the LED anode to EMMC_EN_N (GPIO 47)?

You can use EMMC_EN_N to flash an activity LED, but you should probably drive the LED with a low-threshold FET, like SSM3K329RLFCT-ND (from DigiKey).
This is what I do, and it works fine.
