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:http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32952&page=3 Download the BFM example, and run it. Actually, it looks like I wrote a tutorial too ... see the first link here https://www.ovro.caltech.edu/~dwh/correlator/cobra_docs.html Cheers, Dave
