In FPGA design, interfacing over AXI (ARM eXtensible Interface) is an increasingly popular choice due to its status as the most widespread AMBA interface, enabling the connection of potentially hundreds of Masters and Slaves in complex SoCs.

Time has to be spent supervising and generating IP outputs before they can be incorporated into the mainline project, and simulating the design can be a challenge in itself! One option that significantly reduces the overhead is to choose BRAM, which helps interface to AXI without the need to handle the AXI bus directly and removes concerns about potential issues that are not related [...]
