5.3.3. SVC (Supervisor Call) or SMC (Secure Monitor Call) exception

If an SVC or SMC instruction passes its condition code check, the PTM upgrades the instruction to a waypoint instruction and outputs the following trace:

  1. A waypoint update packet, indicating the address of the executed SVC or SMC instruction.

  2. An exception branch address packet that identifies the SVC or SMC exception and gives the address of the exception vector.

If an SVC or SMC instruction fails its condition code check, the PTM does not upgrade it to a waypoint instruction.
