The PL slave kernels are the
dlbf_slave and the
ulbf_slave kernels. These kernels store the output data generated from the AI Engine application. Open the AMD Vivado™ projects for the PL kernels and review their source code.
AXI BRAM Controller: The AXI BRAM Controller writes the control signals to the CSR module and reads the status signals from the CSR module at 100MHz.
CSR Module: The CSR module is a register interface that the AXI BRAM Controller accesses to access the Slave RAM. Below is the control and status register map for one data master module.
Control and Status Register Address Map
|Register Space Offset
|Bits and Name
|32-bit ID Register.
|1:assert, 0:de-assert. Also assigned to the
slave_rst_bram input in CSR module.
|Sets the number of iterations of the data to receive. The number of iterations is the number of
niter_bram input in the CSR module.
|When this status register is 1'b, the RAM slave is done receiving data to AI Engine. Also assigned to the
rxdone_bram input in the CSR module.
CDC Module: The control and status signals sent to the CSR module sync up with the slave RAM module through a clock domain crossing (CDC) module. It converts the 100 MHz control and status signals from CIPS to 400 MHz signals. The slave RAM module operate at 400 MHz. It also works the other way as well (converting 400 MHz signals from the slave RAM modules to 100 MHz signals to send to the CIPS).
Data Slave RAM Module: Contains the URAM instance that stores the output data produced by the AI Engine. There is one slave RAM module in the
