Re: Query regarding Eq's of Master State Machine
1. IRDY# = ![M_DATA * (Ready + Dev_to)]
Dev_to: is used when 4 clocks had passed without Target response with FRAME#
asserted as clock 1. See. page 51. of PCI 2.2.
Under the above situation, Master must quit the transaction, no matter it is
ready to send data or receive it or not. "Ready" signal may be not asserted
at the time, so Dev_to is needed to make it sure Master will quit under the
If you omit the item, Master may be possible not to react with above
situation properly at some cases. If not properly, it is a design failure.
If your design's response is fast enough to make it ready at clock 5 in any
cases, you can omit it. The item is only used to guarantee to react properly
when Master-abort situation happens. After Target responses, the item is
useless and should be deasserted not to interfere with normal data
Target_abort = (!STOP# * DEVSEL# * M_DATA * FRAME# * !IRDY#)
This equation has error! It only detects Target Abort situation at last data
cycle with FRAME# = '1' and IRDY# = '0'.
Correct equation may be the following:
Target_abort = (!STOP# * DEVSEL# * M_DATA * TargetResponse)
TargetResponse = '1' after Target DEVSEL# = '0', else = '0'.
The above equation says: after Target has response and still in M_DATA,
Target made an abort request by deasserting DEVSEL# and asserting STOP# at
the same clock.
