Capability with MLC
There is no description about MLC NAND in the AM35xx TRM.
I would like to clarify that MLC is applicable to interface via GPMC in addition to SLC NAND ?

You should be able to interface to MLC NAND, at a minimum through a software layer, however it looks like the ROM boot loader only calls out support for SLC NAND, therefore you will likely not be able to boot from a MLC NAND device. In other words you could use MLC NAND for generic storage however you would need to do the initial boot off of some other interface.
Thank you for your quick reply.
I would like to clarify more about the NAND boot mode in AM35xx.
Is is possible to implement MLC NAND boot mode on the On-chip boot loader in AM35xx (I think this is technically possible) ?
If possible, is there any plan to update the bootloader to support MLC NAND boot mode in future AM35xx revision ( as OMAP34xx did ) ?
If there is a plan, when and which revision wiil it be supported ?
Thanks and Best Regards,
