I really like the fact that you wrote a lot of comments in the file headers. These
are very descriptive and very easy to read, which helps users quickly get up to
speed on how they can use your core in their design.

help users quickly instantiate your core (or components of your core), in case
they need them.
Another fairly bothersome thing is the fact that your ISE project is not portable.
When I tried to synthesize your design, it was asking me for locating the
design sources. Which brings me to another not-very-good thing. You might want
to rethink file and folder hierarchy here-and-there. For example, the
VME_Package.vhd file is located in
This file seems to be very important in your design. Thus, it should be located
somewhere more logical from a user perspective, e.g., the hdl/vme64x/ folder.
You have some more detailed comments below.

- p_AMmatch:
Are you sure the synthesis tool is not inferring latches here? You have a pretty
large amount of conditions uncovered, is it capable of generating registers with
enable from that? I will try to synthesize your design to see if it can...
Expect an answer on this shortly. :)
- last two processes:
I find the first statements in these processes redundant. Do they help any by
being there?
There is an undefined constant here -- c_SIZE, that you are using to initialize
your g_size generic. However, this constant is not defined anywhere in the context
of these files. I tried finding it in the VME_Package.vhd file as well, but it's
not defined.
You should either use predefined values for these generics, or defined this
constant somewhere in a package and "use" it in your design sources. I would
recommend the former.
