The Cortex®‑R8 documentation set includes a Technical Reference Manual (TRM), Configuration and Signoff Guide (CSG), and Implementation Manual (IM).
The Technical Reference Manual (TRM) describes the functionality and the effects of functional options on the behavior of the Cortex‑R8 processor. It is required at all stages of the design flow. The choices made in the design flow can mean that some behavior described in the TRM is not relevant. If you are programming the Cortex‑R8 processor, then contact:
The implementer to determine:
The build configuration of the implementation.
The Configuration and Sign-off Guide (CSG) describes:
The ARM product deliverables include reference scripts and information about using them to implement your design. Reference methodology flows supplied by ARM are example reference implementations. Contact your EDA vendor for EDA tool support.
The CSG is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.
The Integration Manual (IM) describes how to integrate the Cortex‑R8 processor into a SoC. It includes describing the pins that the integrator must tie off to configure the macrocell for the required integration. Some of the integration is affected by the configuration options that are used when implementing the Cortex‑R8 processor.
The IM is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.
