πŸ“„οΈ Boot the Mars CM

Mars CM has two versions based on storage, one is Mars CM with eMMC storage, and the other is Mars CM Lite without eMMC storage. The Lite version can only be accessed through SD card on the base-board. If the base-board you are using does not have a SD card interface, you cannot use the Lite version. In addition, the eMMC version shares the hardware interface with the SD card, so they cannot be used at the same time. In other words, when using the eMMC version of Mars CM, you cannot insert a storage card into the SD card slot on the base-board.
