7.1.1. Cortex-M23 processor ROM table identification and entries

Table 7.1 shows the CoreSight components that the Cortex-M23 processor ROM table points to. The values depend on the implemented debug configuration.

[a] Reads as 0xFFF02002 if no watchpoints are implemented.

[b] Reads as 0xFFF03002 if no breakpoints are implemented.

[c] Reads as 0xFFF42002 if ETM is not implemented.

[d] Reads as 0xFFF43002 if CTI is not implemented.

[e] Reads as 0xFFF44002 if MTB is not implemented.

The SCS, DWT, FPB, ETM, MTB, and CTI ROM table entries point to the debug components at addresses 0xE000E000, 0xE0001000, 0xE0002000, 0xE0041000, 0xE0043000, and 0xE0042000 respectively. The value for each entry is the offset of that component from the ROM table base address, 0xE00FF000.

Table 7.2 shows the ROM table identification registers and values for debugger detection. This enables debuggers to identify the processor and its debug capabilities.


The Cortex-M23 processor ROM table only supports word size transactions.
