Access to this register depends on the values of CPACR.{cp10,cp11}, NSACR.{cp10,cp11}, HCPTR.{TCP10,TCP11}, and FPEXC.EN. For details of which values of these fields allow access at which exception levels, see the ARM® Architecture Reference Manual ARMv8, for ARMv8-A architecture profile .

MVFR0 must be interpreted with MVFR1 and MVFR2. See 2.6 Media and VFP Feature Register 1 and 2.7 Media and VFP Feature Register 2.

Configurations

There is one copy of this register that is used in both Secure and Non-secure states.

Attributes
MVFR0 is a 32-bit register.
