C1.3 Debug events

A debug event can be a software debug event or a halting debug event.

A core responds to a debug event in one of the following ways:

  • Ignores the debug event.
  • Takes a debug exception.
  • Enters debug state.

See the Arm® Architecture Reference Manual Armv8, for Armv8-A architecture profile for more information about the debug events.
