Difference between burst and packet
reading datasheets sometomes i find the word burst but i cannot figure out the difference between burst and packet. I've found a definition for burst reading the API guide:
The burst size is the minimum
number of words of data that will be sourced/sinked across the GPIF interface without further
updates of the GPIF DMA flags. The device connected to FX3 is expected to complete a burst
that it has started regardless of any flag changes in between. Please note that this has to be
set to a non-zero value (burst size is greater than one), when the GPIF is being configured
with a 32-bit data bus and functioning at 100 MHz.
but what about a packet ?
Can anyboby help me ?
