The SoC (System on Chip) uses AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture) as an on-chip bus. APB (Advanced Peripheral Bus) is one of the components of the AMBA bus architecture. APB is low bandwidth and low performance bus used to connect the peripherals like UART, keypad, timer and other peripheral devices to the bus architecture. This paper introduces the AMBA APB bus architecture design. The design is created using the Verilog HDL and is tested by a Verilog test bench. This design is verified using UVM (Universal Verification Methodology).
