CNTHVS_CVAL, Counter-timer Secure Virtual Timer CompareValue Register (EL2)

The CNTHVS_CVAL characteristics are:

Purpose

Provides AArch32 access to the compare value for the Secure EL2 virtual timer.

Note

The Secure EL2 timer is implemented by ARMv8.4-SecEL2. It is only accessible from AArch32 state when EL2 is using AArch64 and the value of SCR_EL3.{EEL2, NS} is {1, 0}.

Configuration

AArch32 System register CNTHVS_CVAL bits [63:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch64 System register CNTHVS_CVAL_EL2[63:0] .

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

Attributes

CNTHVS_CVAL is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The CNTHVS_CVAL bit assignments are:

CompareValue, bits [63:0]

Holds the EL2 virtual timer CompareValue.

When CNTHVS_CTL.ENABLE is 1, the timer condition is met when (CNTVCT - CompareValue) is greater than or equal to zero. This means that CompareValue acts like a 64-bit upcounter timer. When the timer condition is met:

When CNTHVS_CTL.ENABLE is 0, the timer condition is not met, but CNTVCT continues to count.

Accessing the CNTHVS_CVAL

This register is accessed using the encoding for CNTV_CVAL.

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:

MRRC{<c>}{<q>} <coproc>, {#}<opc1>, <Rt>, <Rt2>, <CRm>
