General: What is a default slave?

Applies to: AHB


If the memory map of a system does not define the full 4 gigabyte address space then a default slave is required, which is selected when an access is attempted to the empty areas of the memory map. The default slave should use an OKAY response for IDLE/BUSY transfers and an ERROR response sequence for NONSEQ/SEQ transfers.
