Detailed Description

A bridge is used to interface two different crossbars (or in general a memory-mapped requestor and responder), with buffering for requests and responses.

The bridge has a fixed delay for packets passing through it and responds to a fixed set of address ranges.

The bridge comprises a response port and a request port, that buffer outgoing responses and requests respectively. Buffer space is reserved when a request arrives, also reserving response space before forwarding the request. If there is no space present, then the bridge will delay accepting the packet until space becomes available.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ Bridge()

Member Function Documentation

◆ getPort()

Port & gem5::Bridge::getPort ( const std::string &  if_name,
PortID  idx = InvalidPortID 
)
overridevirtual

Get a port with a given name and index.

This is used at binding time and returns a reference to a protocol-agnostic port.

gem5 has a request and response port interface. All memory objects are connected together via ports. These ports provide a rigid interface between these memory objects. These ports implement three different memory system modes: timing, atomic, and functional. The most important mode is the timing mode and here timing mode is used for conducting cycle-level timing experiments. The other modes are only used in special circumstances and should not be used to conduct cycle-level timing experiments. The other modes are only used in special circumstances. These ports allow SimObjects to communicate with each other.

Parameters
if_namePort name
idxIndex in the case of a VectorPort
Returns
A reference to the given port

References cpuSidePort, gem5::SimObject::getPort(), and memSidePort.

◆ init()

void gem5::Bridge::init ( )
overridevirtual

init() is called after all C++ SimObjects have been created and all ports are connected.

Initializations that are independent of unserialization but rely on a fully instantiated and connected SimObject graph should be done here.
