7.4. External memory and bus protection

On the external AXI buses, control bits are protected by parity, and data is protected by ECC bits. This protection is available on the following bus interfaces:

When a parity error is detected on any control bits of the AXI transfer, no correction is done, but an event is reported to the external system.

When a correctable ECC error is detected on the data bits, the data is corrected. If the ECC error is not correctable, an error event is reported.
