With the exception of a few debug configuration signals, the debug interfaces of the individual Cortex-A9 processors are presented externally so that each processor can be debugged independently.

Main Processor

The preload functionality is under software control. See Table on page It continues incrementing after sending interrupts.

The is pin-to-pin compatible with Intel sMore information. It is required at all stages of the design flow.

Introduction to Operating Systems User apps OS Virtual machine interface hardware physical machine interface An operating system is the interface between the user and the architecture. Instead, the cache assumes the whole cache line is valid. Alternatively, the team can synthesise the processor on its own or cortec-a9 integrated, to produce a macrocell that is then integrated, possibly by a separate team.

If the data is not in the L2 cache memory, the read is finally forwarded to main memory. If a cache hit occurs during a write access, the affected cache lines are cleaned and invalidated.

If the byte strobes are not all set, then the write does not actually overwrite all the bytes in the word.

Title for Topic

See Address filtering capabilities on page Mpcorf bit is set to 0 by default When set, coherent linefill requests are sent speculatively to the L2C in parallel with the tag look-up. For a cache miss during a read access, the request is forwarded to L2 memory, which returns the data directly to the ACP.


All other products or services mentioned. ACP master read with coherent data not in L1 or L2 cache: If the tag look-up misses, the confirmed linefill is sent to the L2C and gets RDATA earlier because the data request was already initiated by the speculative request. This is the default. Other brands and names mentioned herein may be the trademarks of their respective owners.

Logic pin out of microprocessor Address bus: Usage constraints This register is writable: When the processor writes to any coherent memory location, the SCU ensures that the relevant data is coherent updated, tagged or invalidated.

ECC is only supported for bit accesses that are bit referenec.

The continual requirement for more More information. ACP master configurations must be as follows: Reference to an enabled feature means one that has also been configured by software. This bit is set to 0 by default 0 Parity off. The MMU is used in conjunction with ,pcore L1 and L2 caches to translate virtual addresses used by software to physical addresses used by hardware.

Trend Micro Incorporated reserves the right to make changes to this document and to the products described herein without notice. ARM recommends you implement uniform configurations for software ease of use. This coherency check is performed by the SCU. The data is only loaded to the L2 cache, not to the L1 cache or processor registers.

However, the L2 cache can then proceed to load the cache line. The start and end addresses are specified in the following register fields: Denotes arguments to monospace text where the argument is to be replaced by a specific value.


ACP write is scheduled. The PLE signals the L2 cache when a cache line is needed in the L2 cache, by making the processor data master port start fetching the data.

Support for parity error detection The primary goal is to maximize overall memory technival and minimize power consumption. Each timer is private, meaning that only its associated processor can access it.

To use the ACP for coherent accesses, the following configurations apply: Using this book This book is organized into the following chapters: For MCUs, often a single mpcorre team integrates the processor before synthesizing the complete design.

If the address and burst size of the transaction to the ACP matches either of npcore conditions shown in the table “Recommended Burst Types for Optimized Bursts”, the logic in the MPU assumes the transaction has all its byte strobes set. When a shared request is latched in the ACP and there are non-shared requests still pending, the non-shared requests must be completed before the shared request mznual proceed.

Techincal Information Accelerator Coherency Port. The ACP port allows one-way coherency. The floating-point unit FPU can execute half- single- and double-precision variants of the following operations:
