    11== R3 Overview ==
    2 
    3 With R3, we have included a dedicated control plane with RMAP processor which will handle all register map
    4 related accesses. In future releases, we may replace the RMAP processor with a real 32-bit soft processor such
    5 as Xilinx Microblaze, or equivalent processors.
    6 
    7 The register maps associated with the control plane handle all Board related controls e.g. RF SPI, general purpose
    8 IOs, LEDs and so forth. Whereas, data plane centric register maps are maintained within the Tx and Rx Application modules.
    9 Within the APP module, we have an option of having a top level RMAP, and/or an application specific RMAP. Usually, the top
    10 level RMAP is shared among multiple applications, whereas application specific RMAPs are only designed for a particular application.

    4132For RMAP read operations, read data must be forwarded back to Host. This is accomplished by following operations : [[BR]]
    4233 1. RMAP Processor forwards read data to Rx Memory Controller. Note : shared access to Rx buffer with dataflow.[[BR]]
    43  2. Generate IP and Ethernet frame for transmission back to host. Some control header information are added in the payload section for Host RMAP read synchronization.[[BR]][[BR]]
