In Siemens Saphir the I/O tag address is defined as a combination of "Base address", "Data block" and particular element in given data block.
"Base address" is 32-bit number that uses hexadecimal format.
"Data block" is a type of data block located on specified base address. Current implementation supports these data blocks:
Each data block is N-tuple (different for every type of data block) of primitive data types. Supported primitive types:
