SD Card Holder Has Not CardDetect Pin

I use a type of card holder on custom carrier board which has not card detect pin. Can iMX6 and iMX8 SD controllers work without card detect pin?

Apalis iMX8QM 4GB IT V1.1B
Apalis iMX6Q 2GB IT V1.1C
I want to use SDC on Linux OS.

Hello prog1,

did you finish you carrier board already ?
We recommend to use the card detect pin other solution did not turn out to be reliable.
like: Using DAT3/CD as card detect pin on microsd-cards

Also I recommend doing a design review by toradex.
