Need better understanding of HPC/DDR usage

Honored Contributor II

I am using the native interface of the HPC for a DDR external memory.  

The HPC is set to half rate and I set the local_size to a hard coded 1 for a burst length of four.  


It is unclear to me about the use of the local interface pins.  

When writing a burst of data, I assume that I apply the address on the local_address pins, and assert local_write_req. When local_wdata_req asserts, I apply my data. What I don't get is this: When local_wdata_req stays asserted, when do I update the local_address? Do I update it every clock cycle are every 4 clock cycles? 


Thanks in advance for your consideration.
