7.2.1. Low power modes

Your implementation can include a Wake-up Interrupt Controller (WIC). This enables the processor and NVIC to be put into a very low-power sleep mode leaving the WIC to identify and prioritize interrupts. When the WIC is used, you must enable SLEEPDEEP in the System Control Register.

The processor fully implements the Wait For Interrupt (WFI), Wait For Event (WFE), and the Send Event (SEV) instructions. In addition, the processor also supports the use of SLEEPONEXIT, that causes the processor core to enter sleep mode when it returns from an exception handler to Thread mode. See the Arm®v7-M Architecture Reference Manual for more information.
