OVP Peripheral Model: OVPDynamicBridge

Model Specific Information

This page provides introductory usage information for an Imperas OVP peripheral behavioral model. The page is split into sections providing specific information for this peripheral, including any ports for connecting into a platform, registers, other component parts, and configuration options and general information for peripheral modeling with Imperas OVP.


DynamicBridge - Dynamically enable/disable a bus bridge from the input slave port to the output master port. The bridge is enabled when the input net is high, disabled when it is low. The size of the port is defined with the portSize parameter. The address on the input slave port is defined by the spLoAddress parameter. The address on the output master port is defined by the mpLoAddress parameter. All three parameters must be specified. The input and output ports may be connected to the same bus.


Open Source Apache 2.0


The range of the input slave port must not conflict with any exiting port connected to the bus. The output bus width is hard coded to be 32 bits.


This is not based upon the operation of a real device


The DynamicBridge peripheral model is located in an Imperas/OVP installation at the VLNV: / peripheral / DynamicBridge / 1.0.
