Document Table of Contents HPS to FPGA AXI-4 Master Interface

The HPS-to-FPGA AXI* -4 Master interface allows HPS masters to issue transactions to the FPGA fabric. You can use the:
  • Enable/Data Width dropdown to configure this master interface's data widths to 32-, 64-, or 128-bit.
  • Ready Latency pipeline dropdown configures the flexible ready latency pipelining available in the FPGA fabric. This can assist with timing closure at the FPGA-to-HPS boundary and is configurable to depths of 0 (none), 1, 2, 3, or 4.
  • Bridge address width is configurable from 32 bits down to 20 bits. When this bridge is enabled, the interfaces h2f_axi_master, h2f_axi_clock, and h2f_axi_reset are made available.

This bridge accepts a clock input from the FPGA fabric and performs clock domain crossing internally. The exposed AXI* interface operates on the same clock domain as the clock supplied by the FPGA fabric. Other interface standards in the FPGA fabric, such as connecting to Avalon® -MM interfaces, can be supported through the use of soft logic adapters. The Platform Designer system integration tool automatically generates adapter logic to connect AXI* to Avalon® -MM interfaces.
