2.1.8 System Address Map overview

This section describes the System Address Map overview.

All CHI commands must include a fully resolved network address, that is, the address must include a source and target ID. For originating requests, this is achieved by passing a request address through a System Address Map (SAM), which effectively maps a memory or I/O address to the target device to satisfy that request. Because this conversion must be complete for a request to be valid, the SAM functionality is integrated in each requesting device, and cannot exist as a separate in-network device.

The SAM consists of two logical units:

The RN-SAM functionality is integrated into RN devices and is not a separate CHI-based unit.
