4.2. TLP Bypass Mode

The F-Tile Avalon-ST IP for PCIe includes a TLP Bypass mode for both downstream and upstream ports to allow the implementation of advanced features such as:
  • The upstream port or the downstream port of a switch.
  • A custom implementation of a Transaction Layer to meet specific user requirements.
Note: UP=Upstream Port ; DN=Downstream Port

The F-Tile Avalon-ST IP IP in TLP Bypass mode still includes some of the PCIe configuration space registers related to link operation.

F-Tile Avalon-ST IP interfaces with the application logic via the Avalon-ST interface (for all TLP traffic), the User Avalon-MM interface (via Hard IP Reconfiguration interface, for Lite TL’s configuration registers access) and other miscellaneous signals.

In TLP bypass mode, F-Tile supports the autonomous Hard IP feature. It responds to configuration accesses before the FPGA fabric enters user mode with Completions with a CRS code.

However, in TLP bypass mode, CvP init and update are not supported.
