1.5.1. Documentation

This section describes the documents for the processor.

Technical Reference Manual

The Technical Reference Manual (TRM) describes the functionality and the effects of functional options on the behavior of the processor. It is required at all stages of the design flow. The choices made in the design flow can mean that some behavior described in the TRM is not relevant. If you are programming the processor then contact:

  • The implementer to determine:

    • The build configuration of the implementation.

    • What integration, if any, was performed before implementing the processor.

  • The integrator to determine the input configuration of the device that you are using.

Integration and Implementation Manual

The Integration and Implementation Manual (IIM) describes:

  • The available build configuration options and related issues in selecting them.

  • How to configure the Register Transfer Level (RTL) with the build configuration options.

  • How to integrate the processor into a SoC. This includes describing the pins that the integrator must tie off to configure the macrocell for the required integration.

  • The processes to sign off the integration and implementation of the design.

The ARM product deliverables include reference scripts and information about using them to implement your design.

Reference methodology documentation from your EDA tools vendor complements the IIM.

The IIM is a confidential book that is only available to licensees.
