Applies to: AXI
What is the meaning of the AXI Specification statement that
"The objectives of the latest generation AMBA interface are to be suitable for high-bandwidth and low-latency designs."?
AXI was designed for moving a lot of data round, quickly. 'High bandwidth' peripherals are those that do just that - eg memory controllers, DMA controllers etc. High Bandwidth is a subjective term but generally it refers to the sort of peripherals mentioned and the moving around of sizeable quantities of data.
