Document Table of Contents Restrictions for DSP Builder Designs with Avalon Streaming Interface and AXI4-Stream Blocks

You can place the Avalon streaming interface and AXI4-Stream blocks in different levels of hierarchy. However, you cannot place Simulink, IP or Primitive library blocks between the interface and the device level ports.

The Avalon streaming and AXI4-Stream interface specifications only allow a single data port per interface. To handle multiple data ports through a single Avalon streaming or AXI4-Stream interface, pack them together into a single signal, then unpack on the other side of the interface. For the maximum width for a data signal, refer to the Avalon Interface Specifications.

Use the BitCombine and BitExtract blocks to pack and unpack.
