In AN65974,It says a three-cycle latency for the dedicated flag is always incurred at the end of the transfer,The three-cycle latency is from the write cycle that causes the buffer to become full to the time the flag is asserted low.Now i design a GPIF state machine, and use IN_DATA action,DMA_RDY_TH0 transition.

does the DMA_RDY_TH0 has latency? when I use DMA_RDY_TH0 and DMA_RDY_TH1 as state transition between IN_DATA with two  threads, it seems some data lost.

Yes. DMA_RDY_THx also has the same latency as the flags. They should be used only to ensure if the DMA is actuallu ready or not, and do not indicate the exact moment at which the DMA becomes full / empty.
