TRCSEQSTR, Sequencer State Register
The TRCSEQSTR characteristics are:
Use this to set, or read, the sequencer state.
External register TRCSEQSTR bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch64 System register TRCSEQSTR[31:0] .
RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values.
This register is present only when ETE is implemented and TRCIDR5.NUMSEQSTATE != 0b000. Otherwise, direct accesses to TRCSEQSTR are RES0.
TRCSEQSTR is a 32-bit register.
The TRCSEQSTR bit assignments are:
STATE, bits [1:0]
Set or returns the state of the sequencer.
On a Trace unit reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.
Accessing the TRCSEQSTR
Must be programmed if TRCRSCTLR<a>.GROUP == 0b0010 and TRCRSCTLR<a>.SEQUENCER != 0b0000.
Writes are CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE if the trace unit is not in the Idle state.
Reads from this register might return an UNKNOWN value if the trace unit is not in either of the Idle or Stable states.
TRCSEQSTR can be accessed through the external debug interface:
This interface is accessible as follows:
- When !AllowExternalTraceAccess(), or OSLockStatus() or !IsTraceCorePowered() accesses to this register generate an error response.
- Otherwise accesses to this register are RW.
