Avalon Interface -> burst transaction

Hi all,  

 

I have a question regarding the Avalon Interface…  

 

As for the burstcount lines, does it indicate the number of bytes/words/transactions on the writedata bus? Lets’s say the writedata has 256 lines. So, if is drive the burstcount with value 0x8, does it mean that the burst should contain 8 transactions of 256 bits each one (totally 256 bytes would be moved)?  

 

As for the address lines, should they indicate a byte address for the first byte in the burst?  

 

Thank you!

It is easier to understand the Avalon-MM protocol if you see it in action. Take a look at post#25 here:

Download the BFM example, and run it. 

 

Actually, it looks like I wrote a tutorial too ... see the first link here
