APB : The Advanced Peripheral Bus (APB) is used for connecting low bandwidth peripherals. It is a simple non-pipelined protocol that can be used to communicate (read or write) from a bridge/master to a number of slaves through the shared bus. The reads and writes share the same set of signals and no burst data transfers are supported. The latest spec is available on ARM website and is a relatively easy protocol to learn.
WASIELA uses APB to interface the MAC layer master to WASIELA’s PHY slave designs.
