A.1.1. Specification

The AHB-Lite specification differs from the full AHB specification in the following ways:

Using the AHB-Lite interface makes the bus transfers generated by the AHB-Lite file reader easier to understand and easier to debug. Because the AHB-Lite is a single master protocol, an AHB-Lite master always has control of the bus. Unlike AHB, AHB-Lite has no request phase. Consequently, the AHB-Lite bus might be subject to wait states during the request phase of the AHB bus.
