1.2.3. System Interconnect Fabric

The System Interconnect Fabric is the bus that connects the processor core to all of the peripherals and cores. The fabric is automatically generated using the SOPC Builder IDE tools. The fabric can be configured as a multi-matrix, multi-master bus for complex systems. However, for the example SOPC system design, the System Interconnect Fabric is configured as a simple single master (Cortex-M1) multiple slave bus. The address decoding for the system peripherals and cores is built into the System Interconnect Fabric. The fabric also provides the data bus multiplexing back to the processor.
