VME64x Core specifications
This core implements a VME64x slave - WB master bridge. It provides a complete
and user extendable CR/CSR space, and forward to a wishbone slave VME
transfers. On the WB side, the addresses are rebased from 0.
* interrupts: 1 with automasking. Once acknowledged by the handler, interrupts
are masked for 1ms or until deasserted by the slave. The intent is to
prevent interrupt bursts and to retrigger interrupts if not handled.
* A disable ADEM (set to 0) results in an unimplemented ADER, to reduce gate
* CSR Reset bit is handled as a pulse (will reset on the next write).
This doesn't follow the standard, but is needed for software compatibility.
* When g_DECODE_AM is set to false (non-default), the decoders will use
AMCAP (instead of the ADER.AM field) to check AM. So a decoder will trigger
for all its AMCAP bit. This is for compatibility with previous versions of
the core.
* DTACK/BERR are supposed to be released at most 30ns once DS is released.
The design needs 4 clocks to release them, which means the min frequency
is supposed to 133Mhz
* Core is smaller (< 1000 slices)
* No retry
* No endianess convertion
* WB data bus is 32 bit
* Internal component declarations removed.
* Async inputs registered with gc_sync_register.
VME interface
* D08(EO), D16, D32
* Addressing mode: A16, A24, A32
* D08(O), I(7-1), ROAK interrupts
* (compatible with MEN A25 master board)
* CR/CSR space with extensions from VME64x
* Geographic Address (GA), dynamic configuration (ader).
(TODO: support noga/usega for svec ?)
* Interrupt
Not supported:
* 2eVME
* 2eSST (no hardware)
* Dynamic size (DFSR, DFS)
* Fixed address (FAF)
* Extra Function Mask (EFM)
* XAM (no 2e)
* A40, A64 (not supported by MEN A25)
* MD32 (multiplexed data cycle, only for A40)
* LCK (bus lock)
* UAT (unaligned accesses)
* RMW cycles (but should work)
* ADO, ADOH (address only cycle)
* D08, D16 for BLT (??)
* RETRY (cf rule 2.91 - incompatibility with WB)
WB interface (datasheet)
* 1. Compliant to Wishbone B4 specifications
* 2. Slave
* 3. Signals name follows the specification
* 4. err_i is forwarded to VME as BERR*
* 5. rty_i is not supported
* 6. no TAGs
* 7. Port size is 32 bit
* 8. Port granularity is 8 bit
* 9. Maximum operand size is 8 bit (TBC)
* 10. Data transfer ordering is BIG ENDIAN
* 11. Sequence of data transfer is defined by the VME side
* 12. No CLK_I signal, clock is provided separately.
* Non pipeline behaviour (but compatible with pipeline).
The generics define values for many CR registers, and the clock period (needed
to follow the VME timing specifications). See generic declarations for
In addition to reset and clock, the ports are used for VME and WB signals,
to connect a user defined CSR or CR memory, interrupts from the WB slave,
VME irq level and vector. See port declaration for details.
