PMCIDR3, Performance Monitors Component Identification Register 3

The PMCIDR3 characteristics are:


Provides information to identify a Performance Monitor component.

For more information see 'About the Component identification scheme' in the Arm® Architecture Reference Manual, Armv8, for Armv8-A architecture profile, section H8 (About the External Debug Registers).


Implementation of this register is OPTIONAL.

If ARMv8.3-DoPD is implemented, this register is in the Core power domain. If ARMv8.3-DoPD is not implemented, this register is in the Debug power domain.

This register is required for CoreSight compliance.


PMCIDR3 is a 32-bit register.

Field descriptions

The PMCIDR3 bit assignments are:


Bits [31:8]

Reserved, RES0.

PRMBL_3, bits [7:0]

Preamble. Must read as 0xB1.

Accessing the PMCIDR3

PMCIDR3 can be accessed through the external debug interface:


This interface is accessible as follows:

  • When ARMv8.3-DoPD is not implemented or IsCorePowered() accesses to this register are RO.
  • Otherwise accesses to this register generate an error response.
