RES0, [31:1]
Reserved, RES0.
NC, [0]

No capture. This bit indicates whether the PMU counters have been captured. The possible values are:

0PMU counters are captured.
1PMU counters are not captured.

If there is a security violation, the core does not capture the event counters. The external monitor is responsible for keeping track of whether it managed to capture the snapshot registers from the core.

This bit does not reflect the status of the captured Program Counter Sample registers.

The core resets this bit to 1 by a Warm reset but MPSSSR.NC is overwritten at the first capture.

Configurations
There are no configuration notes.

Usage constraints

Any access to PMSSSR returns an error if any of the following occurs:

  • The core power domain is off.
  • DoubleLockStatus() == TRUE.
