4.3.38. Configuration Base Address Register

The Configuration Base Address Register characteristics are:

Purpose

Takes the physical base address value at reset

Usage constraints

The Configuration Base Address Register is:

  • read and write in Secure privileged modes.

  • read only in Non-secure state.

  • read only in user mode.

Configurations

In Cortex-A9 uniprocessor implementations the base address is set to zero.

In Cortex-A9 MPCore implementations it is reset to PERIPHBASE[31:13] so that software can determine the location of the private memory region.

Attributes

See the register summary in Table 4.33.

Figure 4.21 shows the Configuration Base Address Register bit assignments.
