The Libre RISC-V SoC, Wishbone Streaming Proposal

[The Libre RISC-V SoC, Wishbone Streaming Proposal]

On System-on-Chips (SoC) the commercial grade bus infrastructure is covered by patents and at best available "royalty-free" (but with no ability to change). A serious alternative with significant adoption is the Wishbone SoC Bus, which is an Open Standard but does not yet have a "streaming" capability. That capability is needed for high-throughput data paths and interfaces. This project will provide an enhancement to the current Wishbone SoC Bus specification, provide Reference Implementations and Bus Function Models (BFM) to easily allows unit tests for all Wishbone BFM users. For demonstration purposes the project will implement an example peripheral to prove the overall concept.
