VME Slave IP Core (VME to AXI Bridge)

VME Slave IP Core (VME to AXI Bridge)

The ANSI/VITA 1.0-1994 or VME64 specification establishes a framework for 8-, 16-, and 32-bit parallel bus computer architectures that can implement single and multiprocessor systems. The VMEbus specification defines an interfacing system used to interconnect microprocessors, data storage, and peripheral control devices in a closely coupled hardware configuration.

iWave’s IP is compliant to ANSI/VITA1.0-1994 and implements the slave configuration of VMEbus data transfer layer consisting of the Data Transfer Bus and the Priority Interrupt Bus modules. This IP can be considered as a VME to AXI bus bridge and can be implemented in any FPGA having interface to a VME Bus Interface.
