How does device access work in AEMv8 models?

Hello everyone,

I am questioning whether everything is set up through the VE system registers or if there's AXI / ACE emulation in these models. Thank you in advance!

    The AEMv8 models are built using ARM's Fast Models tools. The Fast Models do model the bus connections of master/slaves, but at a very high level.  So most connections between masters and slaves will use a generic model connection protocol called PVBus (Programmer's View Bus).  This will give a functionally correct view, but doesn't model all the intricacies of AXI/ACE transactions.
