General : When can Early Burst Termination occur

Applies to: AHB


Bursts can be early terminated either as a result of the Arbiter removing the HGRANT to a master part way through a burst, or after a slave returns a non-OKAY response to any beat of a burst. Note however that a master cannot decide to terminate a defined length burst unless prompted to do so by the Arbiter or Slave responses.

All AHB Masters, Slaves and Arbiters must be designed to support Early Burst Termination.
