GIC500 component

This section describes the GIC500 component.

GIC500 - about

This LISA+ component is a model of r0p0 of the GIC-500 Generic Interrupt Controller (GIC) for distribution of interrupts.

This is a single-component implementation of the GICv3 architecture with support for 256 cores. You can configure the model to support a maximum of 32 clusters with eight cores per cluster. Use it with an ARMv8-A core to deliver interrupts. It supports a single Interrupt Translation Service for message-based interrupts. It supports the architectural features, but does not support the implementation defined features.

You must configure some parameters in order to use the GIC500 component. For example:

    gic500: GIC500(
        "num_clusters" = 2, 
        "cpus_per_cluster_0" = 4, 
        "cpus_per_cluster_1" = 4, 
        "reg-base" = 0x2c200000, 
        "SPI-count" = 256 
    );
