The CLIDR_EL1 characteristics are:
The type of cache, or caches, implemented at each level.
The Level of Coherency and Level of Unification for the cache hierarchy.
- Usage constraints
This register is accessible as follows:
(SCR.NS = 1)
(SCR.NS = 0)
- RO RO RO RO RO
CLIDR_EL1 is architecturally mapped to AArch32 register CLIDR. See Cache Level ID Register.
CLIDR_EL1 is a 32-bit register.
Figure 4.22 shows the CLIDR_EL1 bit assignments.
Table 4.55 shows the CLIDR_EL1 bit assignments.
