PCI-M64: 64-bit, 66 MHz PCI Master/Target Interface Core

Block Diagram


The main PCI-M64 Interface core purpose is to isolate the user from having to solve complex problems of the PCI interface implementation and let the user instead focus on the application development. The PCI-M64 Interface supports 64-bit address/data bus and operates up to 66 MHz (PCI clock frequency). It is fully compliant with the PCI Local Bus Specification, Revision 2.3. The PCI-M64 Interface has both Master and Target capabilities. The interface implements 64 bytes of PCI Configuration Space registers. It is possible to extend the Configuration Space up to 256 bytes if required. The Target part supports up to six Base Address Registers with both I/O and Memory space decoding from 16 bytes up to 2 GB. Both Target and Master supported commands are: a) Configuration Read, Configuration Write b) Memory Read, Memory Write, Memory Read Multiple (MRM), Memory Read Line (MRL) and c) I/O Read, I/O Write.
