13.14. External signals

The following external signals are used by debug:


Debug acknowledge signal. The processor asserts this output signal to indicate the system has entered Debug state. See Debug state for a definition of the Debug state.


Debug enable signal. When this signal is LOW, DSCR[15:14] is read as 0 and the processor behaves as if in debug disabled mode.


External debug request signal. As described in External debug request signal, this input signal forces the core into Debug state if the debug logic is in Halt mode.


Powerdown disable signal generated from DSCR[9]. When this signal is HIGH, the system power controller is forced into Emulate mode. This is to avoid losing CP14 debug state that can only be written through the DBGTAP. Therefore, DSCR[9] must only be set if Halt mode debugging is necessary.
