Arm Cortex‑A76 Core Technical Reference Manual : ICC_BPR1_EL1, Interrupt Controller Binary Point Register 1, EL1

ICC_BPR1_EL1, Interrupt Controller Binary Point Register 1, EL1

ICC_BPR1_EL1 defines the point at which the priority value fields split into two parts, the group priority field and the subpriority field. The group priority field determines Group 1 interrupt preemption.

Bit field descriptions

ICC_BPR1_EL1 is a 32-bit register and is part of:

  • The GIC system registers functional group.
  • The GIC control registers functional group.

Figure B4-2 ICC_BPR1_EL1 bit assignments


RES0, [31:3]
Reserved, RES0.
BinaryPoint, [2:0]

The value of this field controls how the 8-bit interrupt priority field is split into a group priority field, that determines interrupt preemption, and a subpriority field.

The minimum value implemented of ICC_BPR1_EL1 Secure register is 0x2.

The minimum value implemented of ICC_BPR1_EL1 Non-secure register is 0x3.

Bit fields and details that are not provided in this description are architecturally defined. See the Arm® Generic Interrupt Controller Architecture Specification.
