PL192_VIC component

This section describes the PL192_VIC component.

PL192_VIC - about

This LISA+ component is a model of an ARM PrimeCell Vectored Interrupt Controller (PL192). It aggregates interrupts and generates interrupt signals for the ARM processor.

When coupled to an ARM processor that provides a VIC port, routing to the appropriate interrupt handler can be optionally performed in hardware, reducing interrupt latency. The PL192_VIC can also be daisy-chained with other PL192 VICs to permit more than 32 interrupts. The VIC supports hardware and software prioritization of interrupts.
