10.4.7. Watchpoint Value Registers

The DBGWVR characteristics are:


Holds a data address value for use in watchpoint matching. The address used must be the virtual address of the data.

Usage constraints

Used in conjunction with a DBGWCR to form a watchpoint, see Watchpoint Control Registers. Each DBGWVR is associated with a DBGWCR to form a Watchpoint Register Pair (WRP). DBGWVRn is associated with DBGWCRn to form watchpoint n.


The processor implements 4 WRPs, and is specified by the DBGDIDR.WRPs field, see Debug Identification Register.


See the register summary in Table 10.1. The debug logic reset value of a DBGWVR is unknown.
