The data organization is the same whether this burst happens on 32-bit or 64-bit buses.

The attributes of the TLM 2.0 GP are as follows:

m_command = TLM_WRITE_COMMAND;
m_address = 0x3;
m_data_length = 16;
m_byte_enable_length = 16;
m_byte_enable_ptr = {0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0xFF...};
m_streaming_width = 16;

The attributes of the AMBA-PV extension are as follows:

m_burst = AMBA_PV_INCR;
m_length = 4;
m_size = 4;


This transaction is specific to the AMBA 3 AXI bus.
