Component ports

Note

AMBA Designer does not support IP-XACT Phantom ports.

AMBA Designer supports the following port types:

Bus interface

Solid colors.

Signal

Shaded colors.

Ports can be master or slave ports. Master bus interface ports always point out of the component, output ports, and slave interface bus ports always point into the component, input ports.

Figure 27 shows an example for each component port type as a master and a slave, respectively.
