The following cells provide advanced information for tristate signaling and can be specified to allow a cross-over like connection between masters and slaves with a triple of tristate signals.
Because a device does not have true tristate lines inside the fabric, a triple of signals (in, out, tristate) represents a tristate pair.
When you create an interface with the triple of signals, add the following information, which is required to allow connectivity between masters and slaves.
- Tristate Role
- This indicates if the port is part of a tristate triple of signals, and which role. Non-tristate ports leave this cell blank. The values are in, out, and tristate.
- When there are multiple tristate triples in the interface, it is important that the three signals be grouped together. This field must have the same string identifier entered for the three ports that form the same unique tristate.
