4.1.2. Pointer and Reference Parameters

Each pointer or reference parameter of a component results in an input conduit for the address. The input conduit is synchronized with the component start and busy signals. In addition to this input conduit, all pointers share a single Avalon® Memory-Mapped (MM) host interface that the component uses to access system memory.

You can customize these pointer interfaces using the mm_host<> class.

Note: Explicitly-declared Avalon® Memory-Mapped Host interfaces and Avalon Streaming interfaces are passed by reference.

For details about Avalon® (MM) Host interfaces, see Avalon Memory-Mapped Host Interfaces.
