VciSimpleRam

1) Functional Description

This VCI target is an embedded SRAM controller. It is actually a simplified version of the VciRam component, and provide the same services : it handles one or several independent memory segments. Each segment is defined by a base address and a size (number of bytes). Both the base and the size parameters must be multiple of 4. The segments allocated to a given instance of this component must be defined in the Mapping Table. The segments are implemented as dynamically allocated arrays in the constructor.

This component supports an - optionnal - latency parameter, defining the RAM access latency. A L value for this parameter corresponds to a (L+1) cycles latency.

As the VciRam component, the VciSimpleRam component initializes its segments from a ELF binary if a Loader is attached to it.

3) CABA Implementation

CABA sources

CABA Constructor parameters

  • Uninitialized VciSimpleRam
    VciSimpleRam(
         sc_module_name name,                     // Instance name
         const soclib::common::IntTab &index,     //  Target index
         const soclib::common::MappingTable &mt,  // Mapping Table
         const uint32_t latency);                 // Latency (Optionnal argument)
    
  • Elf-Initialized VciSimpleRam

You may load a binary file, by creating a loader:

soclib::common::Loader loader( "a.out" );
VciSimpleRam(
     sc_module_name name,                     // Instance name
     const soclib::common::IntTab &index,     //  Target index
     const soclib::common::MappingTable &mt,  // Mapping Table
     soclib::common::Loader &loader,          // Loader
     const uint32_t latency);                 // Latency (Optionnal argument)

On reset, any loadable segment in ELF file will be reloaded.
