Vitis Drivers API Documentation
xaxicdma_example_simple_poll.c File Reference


This file demonstrates how to use xaxicdma driver on the Xilinx AXI CDMA core (AXICDMA) to transfer packets in simple transfer mode without interrupt.

The completion of the transfer is checked through polling. Using polling mode can give better performance on an idle system, where the DMA engine is lowly loaded, and the application has nothing else to do. The polling mode can yield better turn-around time for DMA transfers.

Modify NUMBER_OF_TRANSFERS for a different number of simple transfer to be done in this test.

To see the debug print, you need a Uart16550 or uartlite in your system, and please set "-DDEBUG" in your compiler options for the example, also comment out the "#undef DEBUG" in xdebug.h. You need to rebuild your software executable.

1.00a jz 07/30/10 First release 2.01a rkv 01/28/11 Modified function prototype of XAxiCdma_SimplePollExample to function taking only one arguments i.e. device id. 2.01a srt 03/06/12 Modified Flushing and Invalidation of Caches to fix CRs 648103, 648701. 4.3 ms 01/22/17 Modified xil_printf statement in main function to ensure that "Successfully ran" and "Failed" strings are available in all examples. This is a fix for CR-965028. ms 04/05/17 Modified Comment lines in functions to recognize it as documentation block for doxygen generation of examples. 4.6 rsp 09/13/19 Add error prints for failing scenarios. Fix cache maintenance ops for source and dest buffer. 4.7 rsp 12/06/19 For aarch64 include xil_mmu.h. Fixes gcc warning. 4.11 sa 09/29/22 Fix infinite loops in the example.

Function Documentation

int main ( void  )

The entry point for this example.

It invokes the example function, and reports the execution status.

  • XST_SUCCESS if example finishes successfully
  • XST_FAILURE if example fails.

References XAxiCdma_SimplePollExample().

int XAxiCdma_SimplePollExample ( u16  DeviceId)

The example to do the simple transfer through polling.

The constant NUMBER_OF_TRANSFERS defines how many times a simple transfer is repeated.

DeviceIdis the Device Id of the XAxiCdma instance
  • XST_SUCCESS if example finishes successfully
  • XST_FAILURE if error occurs
If the hardware build has problems with interrupt, then this function hangs
