DBGDIDR, Debug ID Register

The DBGDIDR characteristics are:

Purpose

Specifies which version of the Debug architecture is implemented, and some features of the debug implementation.

Configuration

If EL1 cannot use AArch32 then the implementation of this register is OPTIONAL and deprecated.

Attributes

DBGDIDR is a 32-bit register.

Field descriptions

The DBGDIDR bit assignments are:

313029282726252423222120191817161514131211109876543210
WRPsBRPsCTX_CMPsVersionRES1nSUHD_impRES0SE_impRES0

WRPs, bits [31:28]

The number of watchpoints implemented, minus 1.

Permitted values of this field are from 0b0001 for 2 implemented watchpoints, to 0b1111 for 16 implemented watchpoints.

The value of 0b0000 is reserved.

If AArch64 is implemented, this field has the same value as ID_AA64DFR0_EL1.WRPs.

BRPs, bits [27:24]

The number of breakpoints implemented, minus 1.

Permitted values of this field are from 0b0001 for 2 implemented breakpoint, to 0b1111 for 16 implemented breakpoints.

The value of 0b0000 is reserved.

If AArch64 is implemented, this field has the same value as ID_AA64DFR0_EL1.BRPs.

CTX_CMPs, bits [23:20]

The number of breakpoints that can be used for Context matching, minus 1.

Permitted values of this field are from 0b0000 for 1 Context matching breakpoint, to 0b1111 for 16 Context matching breakpoints.

The Context matching breakpoints must be the highest addressed breakpoints. For example, if six breakpoints are implemented and two are Context matching breakpoints, they must be breakpoints 4 and 5.

If AArch64 is implemented, this field has the same value as ID_AA64DFR0_EL1.CTX_CMPs.

Version, bits [19:16]

The Debug architecture version. Defined values are:

VersionMeaning
0b0001

Armv6, v6 Debug architecture.

0b0010

Armv6, v6.1 Debug architecture.

0b0011

Armv7, v7 Debug architecture, with baseline CP14 registers implemented.

0b0100

Armv7, v7 Debug architecture, with all CP14 registers implemented.

0b0101

Armv7, v7.1 Debug architecture.

0b0110

Armv8, v8 Debug architecture.

0b0111

Armv8.1, v8 Debug architecture, with Virtualization Host Extensions.

0b1000

Armv8.2, v8.2 Debug architecture.

0b1001

Armv8.4, v8.4 Debug architecture.

All other values are reserved.

In any Armv8 implementation, the values 0b0001, 0b0010, 0b0011, 0b0100, and 0b0101 are not permitted.

  • If ARMv8.1-VHE is not implemented, the only permitted value is 0b0110.

  • In an Armv8.0 implementation, the value 0b1000 or higher is not permitted.

Bit [15]

Reserved, RES1.

nSUHD_imp, bit [14]

In Armv7-A, was Secure User Halting Debug not implemented.

The value of this bit must match the value of the SE_imp bit.

Bit [13]

Reserved, RES0.

SE_imp, bit [12]

EL3 implemented. The meanings of the values of this bit are:

SE_impMeaning
0b0

EL3 not implemented.

0b1

EL3 implemented.

The value of this bit must match the value of the nSUHD_imp bit.

Bits [11:0]

Reserved, RES0.

Accessing the DBGDIDR

Arm deprecates any access to this register from EL0.

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:

MRC{<c>}{<q>} <coproc>, {#}<opc1>, <Rt>, <CRn>, <CRm>{, {#}<opc2>}
