AMBA® AXI4 (Advanced eXtensible Interface 4) is the fourth generation of the AMBA interface specification from ARM®. Xilinx Vivado Design Suite and. The protocol used by many SoC today is AXI, or Advanced eXtensible Interface, and is part of the ARM Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture (AMBA). Advanced eXtensible Interface, or AXI, is part of ARM’s AMBA The AXI protocol is based on a point to point interconnect to avoid bus sharing.

AMBA AXI and ACE Protocol Specification AXI3, AXI4, and AXI4-Lite, ACE and ACE-Lite

Support for burst lengths up to beats Quality of Service signaling Support for multiple region interfaces AXI4-Lite AXI4-Lite is a subset of the AXI4 protocol intended for communication with simpler, smaller control register-style interfaces in components.

Ask Us a Question x. Enables Xilinx to efficiently deliver enhanced native memory, external memory interface and memory controller solutions across all application domains. Key features of the protocol are: Supports both memory mapped and streaming type interfaces Provides a unified interface on IP across communications, video, embedded and DSP functions Is easy to use, with features like automatic pipeline instantiation to help you more easily hit a specific performance target Is equal to or better than current solutions in key attributes, such as fMAX, LUT usage, latency, and bandwidth.

Your question was not submitted. Introduction to AXI Protocol.

Forgot your username or password? The project I was building in Vivado was no longer just a bunch of blocks with random connections, but instead were the various peripherals of the TySOM board all connected with a common bus interface. His interests include processor architectures, and the logic of these hardware designs.


Key features of the protocol are:. APB zxi designed for low bandwidth control accesses, for example register interfaces on system peripherals. Please allow business days for someone to respond amha your question. Access to the target device is controlled through a MUX non-tristatethereby admitting bus-access to one bus-master at a time.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For this reason protocols need to be established, such as letting others speak without interruption, or facing those you are addressing. Each protocl has its own unique signals as well as similar signals existing among all five.

AXIthe third generation of AMBA interface defined in the AMBA 3 specification, is targeted at high performance, high clock frequency system designs and rpotocol features that make it suitable for high speed sub-micrometer interconnect:. The protocol is that easy! The same is necessary with electronics, especially with system on chip SoC designs. The protocol simply sets up the rules for how different modules on a chip communicate with each other, requiring a handshake-like procedure before all transmissions.

Supports single and multiple data streams using the same set of shared wires Supports multiple data widths within the same interconnect Ideal for implementation in FPGAs. AXI4-Lite is a subset of the AXI4 protocol intended for communication with simpler, smaller control register-style interfaces in components. Of course there are additional options that the protocol provides that up the complexity somewhat, such as burst transfer, QoS, Protections, and others. Includes standard models and checkers for designers to aci Interface-decoupled: The proticol of the protocol are quite simple, and are summarized below: Tailor the interconnect to meet system goals: AXI4 is open-ended to support future needs Additional benefits: The timing aspects and the voltage levels on the bus are not dictated by the specifications.

Consolidates broad array of interfaces into one AXI4so users only need to know one family asi interfaces Makes integrating IP from different domains, as well as developing your own or 3rd party partner IP easier Akba design effort because AXI4 IP are already optimized for the highest performance, maximum throughput and lowest latency.

Burst type communication allows for continuous transfer of data. To go more in depth, the interface works by establishing communication between master and slave devices. The AXI4-Stream protocol is designed for unidirectional data transfers from master to slave with greatly reduced signal routing. Technical and de facto ama for wired computer buses.

It facilitates development of multi-processor designs with large numbers of controllers and peripherals with a bus architecture.
