Using an AXI External Slave Connector (axi_ext_slave_conn), an AXI slave device outside of the embedded system module can be connected, using embedded module ports, to the master interface of an AXI Interconnect IP with no intervening logic. The axi_ext_slave_conn IP provides the port connection points necessary to represent the connectivity in the system, plus a set of parameters used to configure the master interface of the connected AXI Interconnect module.
- A set of ports comprising a standard AXI master interface, modeled as an I/O interface of the IP, which can be made external using XPS tools, thereby providing the necessary signals that can be connected to an AXI slave device in the top-level system.
- One AXI slave bus-interface that connects to an AXI Interconnect in the embedded system.
- Directly connects the external master interface ports to the AXI slave bus-interface; contains no logic or storage.
