DBGVCR, Debug Vector Catch Register

The DBGVCR characteristics are:

Purpose

Controls Vector Catch debug events.

Configuration

AArch32 System register DBGVCR bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch64 System register DBGVCR32_EL2[31:0] .

This register is present only when AArch32 is supported at any Exception level. Otherwise, direct accesses to DBGVCR are UNDEFINED.

This register is required in all implementations.

Attributes

DBGVCR is a 32-bit register.

Field descriptions

The DBGVCR bit assignments are:
