PCIe bulk transaction without DMA

Question regarding initiate burst PCI Express transaction from Host CPU (T1040).

As far as I understand CPU access to PCI memory will end-up in a 32bit PCIE transfer requests, and for transactions making use of the max payload size of 256B one has to use DMA.

Since the device I have to read from does not support DMA I would like to know whether it is possible to create a single read transaction making use of the full payload size of 256B without using DMA.

 

Regards

Rainer
