CNTHPS_TVAL_EL2, Counter-timer Secure Physical Timer TimerValue register (EL2)

The CNTHPS_TVAL_EL2 characteristics are:

Purpose

Holds the timer value for the Secure EL2 physical timer.

Configuration

AArch64 System register CNTHPS_TVAL_EL2 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register CNTHPS_TVAL[31:0] .

This register is present only when ARMv8.4-SecEL2 is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to CNTHPS_TVAL_EL2 are UNDEFINED.

RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values.

Attributes

CNTHPS_TVAL_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The CNTHPS_TVAL_EL2 bit assignments are:

TimerValue, bits [31:0]

The TimerValue view of the EL2 physical timer.

On a read of this register:

On a write of this register, CNTHPS_CVAL_EL2 is set to (CNTPCT_EL0 + TimerValue), where TimerValue is treated as a signed 32-bit integer.

When CNTHPS_CTL_EL2.ENABLE is 1, the timer condition is met when (CNTPCT_EL0 - CNTHPS_CVAL_EL2) is greater than or equal to zero. This means that TimerValue acts like a 32-bit downcounter timer. When the timer condition is met:

When CNTHPS_CTL_EL2.ENABLE is 0, the timer condition is not met, but CNTPCT_EL0 continues to count, so the TimerValue view appears to continue to count down.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.
