11.7. Interrupts

The Cortex-A15 MPCore processor asserts the nPMUIRQ signal when interrupt is generated by the PMU. You can route this signal to an external interrupt controller for prioritization and masking. This is the only mechanism that signals this interrupt to the processor.

Interrupt is also driven as a trigger input to the CTI. See Chapter 13 Cross Trigger for more information.
