Abstract: A methodology and implementing system are provided in which pipelined read transfers or PRTs are implemented. The PRTs include a request phase and a response phase. The PRT request phase involves a PRT request master delivering to a PRT request target, a source address, a destination address and the transfer size for the data being requested. In the PRT response phase, the PRT request target becomes a PRT response master, i.e. a PCI bus master, and initiates a completion of the transaction that was requested in the originating PRT request.
