The Generic Timer provides a common timer framework for Arm systems. In this guide, we have learned about the different components of the Generic Timer and their programming interfaces. You can put this learning into practice when you write your own code for low-level system initialization.

We reference the Generic Interrupt Controller (GIC) in this guide. If you want to learn more, look out for our series of guides on the GIC which are in development.

To keep learning about the Armv8-A architecture, see more in our series of guides.
