11.9. Interrupts

The Cortex-A57 MPCore processor asserts the nPMUIRQ signal when an 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 12 Cross Trigger for more information.
