Today's System-On-Chip (SOC) is designed with reusable intellectual property cores to meet short time to market requirements. Embedded systems design focuses on low Power dissipation and system-on-chip. A reliable on-chip communication standard is a must in any SOC. The AMBA 2.0 APB is a peripheral bus standard for low bandwidth peripheral. Here, the authors present the design of APB controller which handles the transactions between the master and peripheral devices. The final design which integrates the peripheral devices with the APB controller is implemented on the FPGA device.
