2.1. About the functions

The CoreLink NIC-400 Network Interconnect is built from functions, each with its own transfer function. A transfer function can be:

You can use a transfer function to create timing isolation, for optimizing critical network paths for latency.

Within a domain, a switch, or multiple switches, can exist to enable routing paths between any slave interface and any master interface.

The functions are configured into routing switches or Interface Blocks (IBs), and you can use AMBA Designer to create highly complex topologies using these modules.
