6.5.3. Device operation

The ATB asynchronous bridge passes trace data between two clock domains by using a buffer. Each transfer takes a number of cycles to pass from the slave interface to the master interface, and this buffer is large enough to ensure that the bridge does not limit the throughput of trace data.

When a flush is received, the bridge ensures that the buffer is empty before the bridge signals that the flush is complete.
