Design challenges are greatly increased when a bridge is required
between two sophisticated PCI Express (PCIe) and AMBAbus protocols.
A bridge enables higher data throughput and allows multiple system buses
to be configured at both ends. Realizing the need of this design challenge,
Mentor Graphics created the PCIe to AMBA3 AXI bridge IP in conjunction
with Mentor’s PCIe controller IP to provide the end-to-end connectivity
between AMBA3 AXI bus to PIPE-compliant PCIe PHY.
