It provides:

  • Generation of timer events as interrupt outputs.
  • Generation of event streams.

The Generic Timer is compliant with the ARM® Architecture Reference Manual ARMv8, for ARMv8-A architecture profile.

This chapter only describes features that are specific to the Cortex-A72 processor implementation.
