PMCIDR2, Performance Monitors Component Identification Register 2
The PMCIDR2 characteristics are:
Provides information to identify a Performance Monitor component.
For more information see 'About the Component identification scheme' in the Arm® Architecture Reference Manual, Armv8, for Armv8-A architecture profile, section H8 (About the External Debug Registers).
Implementation of this register is OPTIONAL.
If ARMv8.3-DoPD is implemented, this register is in the Core power domain. If ARMv8.3-DoPD is not implemented, this register is in the Debug power domain.
This register is required for CoreSight compliance.
PMCIDR2 is a 32-bit register.
The PMCIDR2 bit assignments are:
PRMBL_2, bits [7:0]
Preamble. Must read as 0x05.
Accessing the PMCIDR2
PMCIDR2 can be accessed through the external debug interface:
This interface is accessible as follows:
- When ARMv8.3-DoPD is not implemented or IsCorePowered() accesses to this register are RO.
- Otherwise accesses to this register generate an error response.
