12.1 EDK, PLB - How can I add more than the maximum number of supported Masters or Slaves to a bus?


I have a design that requires more than the maximum number of supported masters or slaves on a bus.Is there a supported flow to add more peripherals than the bus supports?


While a single bus only supports a limited number of peripherals, it is possible to extend the maximum number attached by using a bridge.With the use of a bridge, you can add a second bus that allows communication between the two sides.
Also, see (Xilinx Answer 29762).
