10.11.3. ROM table register descriptions

This section describes the ROM table registers. Table 10.30 provides cross-references to individual registers.

ROM entry registers

The characteristics of the ROMENTRYn are:


Indicates to a debugger whether the debug component is present in the processor's debug logic. There are 16 ROMENTRY registers in the multiprocessor.

Usage constraints

The accessibility to the ROMENTRYn by condition code is:


Table 10.1 describes the access conditions.


The ROMENTRYn is Common to Secure and Non-secure states.


See the register summary in Table 10.30.

Figure 10.24 shows the ROMENTRY bit assignments.

[31:12]Address offset

Address offset for the debug component.


Negative values of address offsets are permitted using the two’s complement of the offset.

[11:2]-Reserved, res0.

Format of the ROM table entry. The value for all ROMENTRY registers is:


End marker.


32-bit format.

[0]Component present[a]

Indicates whether the component is present:


Component is not present.


Component is present.

[a] Processor 0 is always present. The component entries for processor 1, 2, and 3 depend on your configuration.

The Physical Address of a debug component is determined by shifting the address offset 12 places to the left and adding the result to Physical Address of multiprocessor ROM table.

Table 10.32 shows the offset values for all ROMENTRY values. If a processor is not implemented, the ROMENTRY registers for its debug, CTI, PMU, and ETM components are 0x00000000.
