Virtualization Processor ID Register

The VPIDR_EL2 characteristics are:


Holds the value of the Virtualization Processor ID. This is the value returned by Non-secure EL1 reads of MIDR. See Table 4.18.

Usage constraints

This register is accessible as follows:








(SCR.NS = 1)


(SCR.NS = 0)

- - - RW RW -

VPIDR_EL2 is architecturally mapped to AArch32 register VPIDR. See Virtualization Processor ID Register.


VPIDR_EL2 is a 32-bit register.

VPIDR_EL2 resets to the value of MIDR_EL1.

MIDR value returned by Non-secure PL1 reads of the MIDR. The MIDR description defines the subdivision of this value. See Table 4.18.

To access the VPIDR_EL2:

MRS <Xt>, VPIDR_EL2 ; Read VPIDR_EL2 into Xt
MSR VPIDR_EL2, <Xt> ; Write Xt to VPIDR_EL2

Register access is encoded as follows:
