Abstract: ARM introduced the Advanced Micro controller Bus Architecture (AMBA) 4.0 specifications in March 2010, which includes Advanced extensible Interface (AXI) 4.0. AMBA bus protocol has become the de facto standard SoC bus. That means more and more existing IPs must be able to communicate with AMBA 4.0 buses. Based on AMBA 4.0 bus, we designed an Intellectual Property (IP) core of Advanced Peripheral Bus (APB) bridge, it can translates the AXI4.0- lite transactions into APB 4.0 transactions. The bridge provides an interface between the high-performance AXI bus and low-power APB domain.
