ICC_CTLR, Interrupt Controller Control Register

The ICC_CTLR characteristics are:

Purpose

Controls aspects of the behavior of the GIC CPU interface and provides information about the features implemented.

Configuration

AArch32 System register ICC_CTLR bits [31:0] (S) are architecturally mapped to AArch64 System register ICC_CTLR_EL1[31:0] (S) .

AArch32 System register ICC_CTLR bits [31:0] (NS) are architecturally mapped to AArch64 System register ICC_CTLR_EL1[31:0] (NS) .

Attributes

ICC_CTLR is a 32-bit register.

Field descriptions

The ICC_CTLR bit assignments are:

313029282726252423222120191817161514131211109876543210
RES0ExtRangeRSSRES0A3VSEISIDbitsPRIbitsRES0PMHERES0EOImodeCBPR

Bits [31:20]

Reserved, RES0.

ExtRange, bit [19]

Extended INTID range (read-only).

ExtRangeMeaning
0b0

CPU interface does not support INTIDs in the range 1024..8191.

Behaviour is UNPREDICTABLE if the IRI delivers an interrupt in the range 1024 to 8191 to the CPU interface.

Note

Arm strongly recommends that the IRI is not configured to deliver interrupts in this range to a PE that does not support them.

0b1

CPU interface supports INTIDs in the range 1024..8191.

All INTIDs in the range 1024..8191 are treated as requiring deactivation.

If EL3 is implemented, ICC_CTLR_EL1.ExtRange is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.ExtRange.

RSS, bit [18]

Range Selector Support. Possible values are:

RSSMeaning
0b0

Targeted SGIs with affinity level 0 values of 0 - 15 are supported.

0b1

Targeted SGIs with affinity level 0 values of 0 - 255 are supported.

This bit is read-only.

Bits [17:16]

Reserved, RES0.

A3V, bit [15]

Affinity 3 Valid. Read-only and writes are ignored. Possible values are:

A3VMeaning
0b0

The CPU interface logic only supports zero values of Affinity 3 in SGI generation System registers.

0b1

The CPU interface logic supports non-zero values of Affinity 3 in SGI generation System registers.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch32, this bit is an alias of ICC_MCTLR.A3V.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch64, this bit is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.A3V.

SEIS, bit [14]

SEI Support. Read-only and writes are ignored. Indicates whether the CPU interface supports local generation of SEIs:

SEISMeaning
0b0

The CPU interface logic does not support local generation of SEIs.

0b1

The CPU interface logic supports local generation of SEIs.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch32, this bit is an alias of ICC_MCTLR.SEIS.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch64, this bit is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.SEIS.

IDbits, bits [13:11]

Identifier bits. Read-only and writes are ignored. The number of physical interrupt identifier bits supported:

IDbitsMeaning
0b000

16 bits.

0b001

24 bits.

All other values are reserved.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch32, this field is an alias of ICC_MCTLR.IDbits.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch64, this field is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.IDbits.

PRIbits, bits [10:8]

Priority bits. Read-only and writes are ignored. The number of priority bits implemented, minus one.

An implementation that supports two Security states must implement at least 32 levels of physical priority (5 priority bits).

An implementation that supports only a single Security state must implement at least 16 levels of physical priority (4 priority bits).

Note

This field always returns the number of priority bits implemented, regardless of the Security state of the access or the value of GICD_CTLR.DS.

The division between group priority and subpriority is defined in the binary point registers ICC_BPR0 and ICC_BPR1.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch32, physical accesses return the value from ICC_MCTLR.PRIbits.

If EL3 is implemented and using AArch64, physical accesses return the value from ICC_CTLR_EL3.PRIbits.

If EL3 is not implemented, physical accesses return the value from this field.

Bit [7]

Reserved, RES0.

PMHE, bit [6]

Priority Mask Hint Enable. Controls whether the priority mask register is used as a hint for interrupt distribution:

PMHEMeaning
0b0

Disables use of ICC_PMR as a hint for interrupt distribution.

0b1

Enables use of ICC_PMR as a hint for interrupt distribution.

If EL3 is implemented:

  • If EL3 is using AArch32, this bit is an alias of ICC_MCTLR.PMHE.
  • If EL3 is using AArch64, this bit is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.PMHE.
  • If GICD_CTLR.DS == 0, this bit is read-only.
  • If GICD_CTLR.DS == 1, this bit is read/write.

If EL3 is not implemented, it is IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED whether this bit is read-only or read-write:

  • If this bit is read-only, an implementation can choose to make this field RAZ/WI or RAO/WI.
  • If this bit is read/write, it resets to zero.

Bits [5:2]

Reserved, RES0.

EOImode, bit [1]

EOI mode for the current Security state. Controls whether a write to an End of Interrupt register also deactivates the interrupt:

EOImodeMeaning
0b0

ICC_EOIR0 and ICC_EOIR1 provide both priority drop and interrupt deactivation functionality. Accesses to ICC_DIR are UNPREDICTABLE.

0b1

ICC_EOIR0 and ICC_EOIR1 provide priority drop functionality only. ICC_DIR provides interrupt deactivation functionality.

If EL3 is implemented:

  • If EL3 is using AArch32, this bit is an alias of ICC_MCTLR.EOImode_EL1{S, NS} where S or NS corresponds to the current Security state.
  • If EL3 is using AArch64, this bit is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.EOImode_EL1{S, NS} where S or NS corresponds to the current Security state.

If EL3 is not implemented, it is IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED whether this bit is read-only or read-write:

  • If this bit is read-only, an implementation can choose to make this field RAZ/WI or RAO/WI.
  • If this bit is read/write, it resets to zero.

CBPR, bit [0]

Common Binary Point Register. Controls whether the same register is used for interrupt preemption of both Group 0 and Group 1 interrupts:

CBPRMeaning
0b0

ICC_BPR0 determines the preemption group for Group 0 interrupts only.

ICC_BPR1 determines the preemption group for Group 1 interrupts.

0b1

ICC_BPR0 determines the preemption group for both Group 0 and Group 1 interrupts.

If EL3 is implemented:

  • If EL3 is using AArch32, this bit is an alias of ICC_MCTLR.CBPR_EL1{S,NS} where S or NS corresponds to the current Security state.
  • If EL3 is using AArch64, this bit is an alias of ICC_CTLR_EL3.CBPR_EL1{S,NS} where S or NS corresponds to the current Security state.
  • If GICD_CTLR.DS == 0, this bit is read-only.
  • If GICD_CTLR.DS == 1, this bit is read/write.

If EL3 is not implemented, it is IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED whether this bit is read-only or read-write:

  • If this bit is read-only, an implementation can choose to make this field RAZ/WI or RAO/WI.
  • If this bit is read/write, it resets to zero.
