DBGWVR<n>_EL1, Debug Watchpoint Value Registers, n = 0 - 15

The DBGWVR<n>_EL1 characteristics are:

Purpose

Holds a data address value for use in watchpoint matching. Forms watchpoint n together with control register DBGWCR<n>_EL1.

Configuration

AArch64 System register DBGWVR<n>_EL1 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register DBGWVR<n>[31:0] .

AArch64 System register DBGWVR<n>_EL1 bits [63:0] are architecturally mapped to External register DBGWVR<n>_EL1[63:0] .

If watchpoint n is not implemented then accesses to this register are UNDEFINED.

This register is in the Cold reset domain. On a Cold reset RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values. The register is not affected by a Warm reset.

Attributes

DBGWVR<n>_EL1 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The DBGWVR<n>_EL1 bit assignments are:

RESS[14:4], bits [63:53]

Reserved, Sign extended. Hardware and software must treat this field as RES0 if the most significant bit of VA is 0 or RES0, and as RES1 if the most significant bit of VA is 1.

Hardware always ignores the value of these bits and it is IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED whether:

  • The bits are hardwired to a copy of the most significant bit of VA, meaning writes to these bits are ignored, and reads to the bits always return the hardwired value.
  • The value in those bits can be written, and reads will return the last value written. The value held in those bits is ignored by hardware.

VA[52:49], bits [52:49]

When ARMv8.2-LVA is implemented:

Extension to VA[48:2]. See VA[48:2] for more details.

On a Cold reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.


Otherwise:

Extension to RESS[14:4]. See RESS[14:4] for more details.

VA[48:2], bits [48:2]

Bits[48:2] of the address value for comparison.

When ARMv8.2-LVA is implemented, VA[52:49] forms the upper part of the address value. Otherwise, VA[52:49] are RESS.

Arm deprecates setting DBGWVR<n>_EL1[2] == 1.

On a Cold reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Bits [1:0]

Reserved, RES0.
