1.6.3. Debug interfaces

The external debug interface of the Cortex-A9 MPCore processor is compliant with the ARMv7 Debug Architecture that includes support for Security Extensions and CoreSight.

With the exception of a few debug configuration signals, the debug interfaces of the individual Cortex-A9 processors are presented externally so that each processor can be debugged independently.

The Cortex-A9 MPCore processor also provides an external Debug APB interface for memory-mapped accesses to debug and performance monitor registers.
