Product documentation, design flow, and architecture
The TZC-400 documentation has several parts.
- Technical Reference Manual
The Technical Reference Manual (TRM) describes the functionality and the effects of functional options on the behavior of the TZC-400. This information is useful at all stages of the design flow. The choices that you make in the design flow can mean that some behavior that the TRM describes is not relevant. If you are programming the TZC-400, then contact:
- The implementer to determine the build configuration of the implementation.
- The integrator to determine the pin configuration of the device that you are using.
- Integration Manual
The Integration Manual (IM) describes how to integrate the TZC-400 into a System-on-Chip (SoC). It includes a description of the signals that the integrator must tie off to integrate and configure the design. Some of the integration is affected by the configuration options you use when you generate the TZC-400 RTL.
The IM is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.
- Implementation Guide
The Implementation Guide (IG) describes:
- Key implementation tasks.
- Product features to ease implementation.
- Information on the trial implementation flow.
- How to use the example scripts in the TZC-400.
The ARM® product deliverables include reference scripts and information about how you use them to perform a trial implementation of your design.
The IG is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.
- Supplement to AMBA® Designer ADR-400 User Guide
The supplement describes how to use AMBA Designer to configure and generate the TZC-400 RTL.
The Supplement to AMBA Designer is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.
ARM recommends that you integrate the TZC-400 into your system before implementing the design. The implementation flow is supplied with TZC-400 is for trial implementation only. However, there are mandatory implementation considerations that apply to the custom flow you use for your system.
