SD card proprietary modes - have these escaped into the wild?

Deleted my first reply, sorry.

--- Quote ---Sure, but isn't this a bytewide protocol, fundamentally, like nearly all the rest of computing?

Only because you're using a byte-oriented computer to deal with it.

I think this page explains things better than the Wiki page I previously linked to. You can see that the CRC calculation lends itself to a shift register (not surprising since the data was originally assumed to be a serial stream).

That is a 32 pin TSOP though.
8 pin SOIC should almost always have the same pinout, width can vary, but footprint could account for multiple widths.

They are both SO-8, and the Adesto (whose pinout varies) is 512 byte sectors which is much better for producing a windows compatible file system. The Winbond devices are cheap for sure but have 4k sectors.

Haven't read the huge sd card spec but that must be emulating 512 bytes with a 4k RAM buffer, to present a logical block device with 512 byte sectors.
