3.2. Interface attributes

The following tables list the master and slave interface attributes for the bridge:

Table 2. Master interface attributes  (continued)

AttributeDescriptionValue
Combined issuing capabilityThe maximum number of active transactions that a master can generateMaster-dependent
Read ID capabilityThe maximum number of different ARID values that a master can generate for all active read transactions at any one timeMaster-dependent
Read ID widthThe number of bits in the ARID busMaster-dependent
Read issuing capabilityThe maximum number of active read transactions that a master can generateMaster-dependent
Write ID capabilityThe maximum number of different AWID values that a master can generate for all active write transactions at any one timeMaster-dependent
Write ID widthThe number of bits in the AWID and WID busesMaster-dependent
Write issuing capabilityThe maximum number of active write transactions that a master can generateMaster-dependent

Table 3. Slave interface attributes 

AttributeDescriptionValue
Write acceptance capabilityThe maximum number of active write transactions that a slave can accept.Slave-dependent
Read acceptance capabilityThe maximum number of active read transactions that a slave can accept.Slave-dependent
Combined acceptance capabilityThe maximum number of active transactions that a slave can accept. You must specify this if read and write address storage is combined.Slave-dependent
Write interleave depthThe number of active write transactions for which the slave can receive data. This is counted from the earliest transaction.Slave-dependent
Read data reorder depthThe number of active read transactions for which a slave can transmit data. This is counted from the earliest transaction.Slave-dependent

Note

The master-dependent and slave-dependent values in the Value column of Table 2, and Table 3 indicate that the bridge adopts the attribute value of the master or slave that the interface is connected to.
