Why is the VALID signal described as "sticky"?

Applies to: AXI

Answer

The word "sticky" is used to describe a signal that must stay asserted until it is acknowledged. The VALID signal is sticky because once it has been driven high it must remain asserted until a corresponding READY signal is received.
