3.6.2 System information registers

The System Information Register Block provides information on the system configuration and identity. This register block is read-only and accessible by accesses of any security attributes.

This module resides at base address 0x5002_0000 in the Secure region, and 0x4002_0000 in the Non-secure region of the Base Peripheral Region.


The System information registers block is mapped to both the Secure and Non-secure regions and is visible to both regions without any security protection.

The System Version register enables software to read the system part number and revision.

Table 3-64 SYS_VERSION register

Bits Name Access Reset value Description
[31:28] CONFIGURATION RO 0x2 Set to 0x2 for SSE-200 r2.
[27:24] MAJOR_REVISION RO 0x2 Set to 0x2.
[23:20] MINOR_REVISION RO 0x0 Set to 0x0.
[19:12] DESIGNER_ID RO 0x41 Arm Product with designer code 0x41.
[11:0] PART_NUMBER RO 0x743 Part Number for the SSE-200.


The System Hardware Configuration register enables software to determine the system configuration.
