[31:0]CNTCVU_U_32Current value of the timestamp counter, upper 32 bits. To change the current timestamp value, write the lower 32 bits of the new value to CNTCVL before writing the upper 32 bits to this register. The 64-bit timestamp value is updated with the value from both writes when this register is written to.
