4.2. Arbiter

The AHB arbiter is responsible for determining which master is given access to the bus. At any time, only one master can perform transfers on the bus. The arbiter ensures this by sampling the request signals from the various masters in the system and then, using an arbitration priority scheme, determines which master is currently the highest priority.
