The Hard IP for PCI Express offers the following interrupt mechanisms:
- Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI)— MSI uses the TLP single dword memory writes to to implement interrupts. This interrupt mechanism conserves pins because it does not use separate wires for interrupts. In addition, the single dword provides flexibility in data presented in the interrupt message. The MSI Capability structure is stored in the Configuration Space and is programmed using Configuration Space accesses.
- MSI-X—The Transaction Layer generates MSI-X messages which are single dword memory writes. The MSI-X Capability structure points to an MSI-X table structure and MSI-X PBA structure which are stored in memory. This scheme is in contrast to the MSI capability structure, which contains all of the control and status information for the interrupt vectors.
