Arm Cortex-A55 Core Technical Reference Manual : Voltage domains

Voltage domains

The Cortex®-A55 core supports a VCPU voltage domain and a VSYS voltage domain.

The following figure shows the VCPU and VSYS voltage domains in each Cortex-A55 core and in the DSU. The example shows a configuration with four Cortex-A55 cores.

Figure A4-1 Cortex-A55 Voltage Domains

Asynchronous bridge logic exists between the voltage domains. The Cortex-A55 core logic and core clock domain of the asynchronous bridge are in the VCPU voltage domain. The DSU clock domain of the asynchronous bridge is in the VSYS voltage domain.


You can tie VCPU and VSYS to the same supply if the system does not require per-core DVFS.
