The Smart-DMA Controller is a configurable module designed to provide direct access to memories for peripherals without an active CPU thus enabling best power optimzation platform

Key Benefits

  • Ultra-low power platform enabler
  • Smart and Autonomous Peripherals enabler

Key Performances

  • - 2 master ports on interconnect for TX and RX datapaths with separate control between TX and RX channels
  • ? Round-robin arbitration across channels
  • - sDMA Filter unit for 1/2D memory-to-memory transfers with linear algebra operations
  • - Interfaces setting on the number of instances for each interface individually like:
  • ? the optional AMBA interfaces: AHB-Lite targets ports
  • ? the external sDMA channels (EXT_PER)
