Im interested in where exactly the Addresses (BASE_ADDR) set in the "Address Editor" of a Vivado Block Design come into play in the FPGA-Part. I have multiple Blocks with AXI-Lite connected to a Zynq via an AXI-Interconnect, which works fine. But i want to know how:
To my current understanding, the routing must be somewhere in the AXI-Interconnect-IP-Block, however i can not see how it knows where to route the bus as "Customize IP" shows nothing related to the Addresses. It just seems to magically connect everything correctly...
So how does it work?
Edit: For clarification - this is how the part of my system looks like:
______________ | |---------- Block 1 (AXI-Lite) | AXI |---------- Block 2 (AXI-Lite) Zynq (AXI Bus) -------| Interconnect |---------- Block 3 (AXI-Lite) | |---------- Block 4 (AXI-Lite) |______________|---------- Block 5 (AXI-Lite)
The Zynq itself is not relevant in this picture, there is just a full AXI-Bus on the left and multiple AXI-Lite-Blocks on the right, which can have Address-Ranges set in the "Address Editor" of Vivado.
Further clarification: I know how the lower bits of the address-lines are used to address single registers in AXI-Lite, but the Xilinx-Template doesn't seem to care about the higher bits, therefore my assumption that the addressing has to be done outside of the AXI-Lite block.
