3.1. About the Interrupt Controller

The Interrupt Controller is a single functional unit that is located in a Cortex-A9 MPCore design. It is responsible for centralizing all interrupt sources before dispatching them to each individual Cortex-A9 processor. There is one interrupt interface per Cortex-A9 processor.

The Interrupt Controller is memory-mapped. The Cortex-A9 processors access it by using a private interface through the SCU. See Private Memory Region.
