eMMC does not go through the tuning procedure on the E3845 processor


Our design is based on the E3845 processor. We use eMMC memory from ISSI IS21ES08G as a hard disk. BIOS is written based on EDK II (tianocore). We managed to work with eMMC at SDR50 speed. This boots Linux from eMMC. However, we were unable to work with eMMC at HS200 speed. The problem lies in the tuning procedure. After sending the command CMD21 emmc issues a test sequence - this can be seen with the oscilloscope. However, after that, nothing happens on the bus and the BIOS will give us the error "EmmcTuningClkForHs200: Send tuning block fails with% r \ n", Status) ". Perhaps the initialization of the hardware has not been completed. How can we solve this problem?
