3.2 Bus components

This section describes the Bus components.

PVBus components and protocols provide functionally-accurate communication between bus masters and slaves. They are not software implementations of specific hardware, but instead are abstract components that are required by the software model environment.

There is no modeling of handshaking or cycle counts. By removing this level of detail, and by using efficient internal communication mechanisms, PVBus components can provide very fast modeling of bus accesses. A number of components, which abstract the internal details, access the PVBus API. You must use these components correctly to achieve high simulation speeds.
