Preface
Typographical conventions
The following table describes the typographical conventions:
Style
Purpose
italic
Introduces special terminology, denotes cross-references, and citations.
bold
Highlights interface elements, such as menu names. Denotes signal names. Also used for terms in descriptive lists,
where appropriate.
monospace
Denotes text that you can enter at the keyboard, such as commands, file and program names, and source code.
monospace
Denotes a permitted abbreviation for a command or option. You can enter the underlined text instead of the full
command or option name.
monospace italic
Denotes arguments to monospace text where the argument is to be replaced by a specific value.
monospace bold
Denotes language keywords when used outside example code.
<and>
Encloses replaceable terms for assembler syntax where they appear in code or code fragments. For example:
MRC p15, 0 <Rd>, <CRn>, <CRm>, <Opcode_2>
SMALL CAPITALS
Used in body text for a few terms that have specific technical meanings, that are defined in the ARM glossary. For
example, IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED, IMPLEMENTATION SPECIFIC, UNKNOWN, and UNPREDICTABLE.
Timing diagrams
The figure named Key to timing diagram conventions explains the components used in timing
diagrams. Variations, when they occur, have clear labels. You must not assume any timing
information that is not explicit in the diagrams.
Shaded bus and signal areas are undefined, so the bus or signal can assume any value within the
shaded area at that time. The actual level is unimportant and does not affect normal operation.
Clock
HIGH to LOW
Transient
HIGH/LOW to HIGH
Bus stable
Bus to high impedance
Bus change
High impedance to stable bus
Key to timing diagram conventions
Timing diagrams sometimes show single-bit signals as HIGH and LOW at the same time and
they look similar to the bus change shown in Key to timing diagram conventions. If a timing
diagram shows a single-bit signal in this way then its value does not affect the accompanying
description.

Preface
Signals
The signal conventions are:
Signal level
The level of an asserted signal depends on whether the signal is
active-HIGH or active-LOW. Asserted means:
•
HIGH for active-HIGH signals.
•
LOW for active-LOW signals.
Lower-case n
At the start or end of a signal name denotes an active-LOW signal.

Introduction
1.2
Precautions
This section contains advice about how to prevent damage to your daughterboard.
1.2.1
Ensuring safety
The daughterboard is supplied with a range of DC voltages. Power is supplied to the
daughterboard through the header connectors.
Warning
Do not use the board near equipment that is sensitive to electromagnetic emissions, for example
medical equipment.
1.2.2
Preventing damage
The daughterboard is intended for use within a laboratory or engineering development
environment. It is supplied without an enclosure and this leaves the board sensitive to
electrostatic discharges and permits electromagnetic emissions.
Caution
To avoid damage to the daughterboard, observe the following precautions:
ARM DDI 0503F
ID062813
•
Never subject the board to high electrostatic potentials. Observe ElectroStatic Discharge
(ESD) precautions when handling any board.
•
Always wear a grounding strap when handling the board.
•
Only hold the board by the edges.
•
Avoid touching the component pins or any other metallic element.
•
Do not use the board near a transmitter of electromagnetic emissions.

Test chip SCC Register 6 on page 3-22 controls the internal resets. The fine-grained resets select
specific cores or other blocks according to the bits you select in this register.
Each cluster contains the following power domains:
VCORE
Contains most of the cluster logic including all the cores.
VSOC
Contains the interface logic between the clusters and the rest of the test chip.
The reset signals operate as follows:
A7_NVCORERESET
Resets all of the A7 VCORE domain and overrides all the fine-grained A7 resets.
A15_NVCORERESET
Resets all of the A15 VCORE domain and overrides all the fine-grained A15
resets.

Serial Configuration Controller (SCC)
The Serial Configuration Controller (SCC) is a block of registers internal to the test chip that
the Daughterboard Configuration Controller writes through a serial interface. The
Daughterboard Configuration Controller uses the SCC during power-up configuration to set the
test chip PLLs and other default values from the board configuration files stored on the
motherboard microSD card. The MCC also uses the SCC to read values from the test chip, for
example, the device ID.
You can also read and write to the SCC registers while the system is running using the
motherboard SYS_CFG register interface.
Figure 2-8 shows an overview of the SCC connectivity.
See Test chip SCC registers on page 3-12 for a full description of the SCC registers.

2.6.2
Energy meter
The Daughterboard Configuration Controller firmware supports an on-board energy meter that
enables you to measure the energy consumption of core supplies. The energy meter runs as a
background task on the Daughterboard Configuration Controller and does not load the main
core software except when you request a reading through the SYS_CFG interface.
You can use the energy meter to determine the amount of energy that a specific software
function consumes. You read the energy before and after the function operates, and the
difference between the two represents the amount of energy that the function consumes.
The energy meter accumulates core power supply at a rate of 10000 samples per second. You
can read accumulated energy since reset in Micro-Joules through the SYS_CFGCTRL register
interface.
A 64-bit value represents the total energy. This requires two 32-bit reads from the SYS_CFG
interface. You must read the lower 32 bits followed by the upper 32 bits. When you read the
lower 32 bits, the 64-bit data transfers to two temporary storage registers in the Daughterboard
Configuration Controller and you then receive the lower 32 bits from the lower storage register.
You then read the upper 32 bits and receive the value from the upper storage register.
If you read the upper 32 bits first, no data transfers to the storage register and you receive a false

2.7.1
Overview of clocks
The daughterboard sends clocks to, and receives clocks from, the motherboard and generates
local clocks that are imported into the Cortex-A15_A7 MPCore test chip. Additional PLLs
inside the test chip provide phase-shifted and frequency-multiplied versions of these imported
clocks as Figure 2-10 on page 2-26 shows.
Figure 2-9 on page 2-25 shows a functional overview of the CoreTile Express A15×2 A7×3
daughterboard clocks and their connections to the motherboard and a LogicTile Express FPGA
daughterboard.

See Test chip SCC Register 11 on page 3-27.
CPU_CLK0_A15 is the default source for A15_CLK.
CPU_CLK2_A7 is the default source for A7_CLK.
You can use the 4-way glitchless multiplexers to select any of the four inputs as the sources for
A15_CLK and A7_CLK. See Test chip SCC Register 11 on page 3-27.
When you write to the SCC registers to change the sources for the MPCore clocks, you can
monitor when the change takes effect by reading the clock status register. See Test chip SCC
Register 12 on page 3-30.
You can select the polarity of MMB_IDCLK relative to PXLREFCLK. It can be either in
phase with PXLREFCLK or inverted. See Polarities Register bit assignments on page B-17.
You can also use the SCC registers to exercise other options, for example, to select External
Bypass to bypass the PLL and drive the reference clock into the design.
Note
The configuration process bypasses the HDLCD PLL by default.
ARM does not recommend that you select non-default options for the other PLLs and
Figure 2-10 on page 2-26 does not show these options. See Test chip SCC Register 11 on
page 3-27 and Test chip SCC Registers 13, 15, 17, 19, 23, and 25 PLL control registers on
page 3-31.
The MCC and Daughterboard Configuration Controller use the board.txt configuration file for
the daughterboard to set the frequency of the daughterboard clock generators and to configure
the SCC registers on power-up or reset. You can also adjust the daughterboard clocks during
run-time by using the motherboard SYS_CFG register interface.

ARM derives the values in Table 2-8 from a random sample of test chips operating at room
temperature and from temperature testing and RTL simulations. They are the best estimate
ARM can provide on the maximum operating frequencies, but the maximum operating
frequencies of the test chip on your daughterboard might be different from the frequencies in
Table 2-8.
The daughterboard OSCCLK sources, and the PLL divider settings, control the minimum test
chip operating frequencies.

Hardware Description
The test chip contains seven PLLs. They use the programmable clocks from the daughterboard
to generate some of the clocks that the internal systems on the test chip use. See Figure 2-10 on
page 2-26.
The SCC registers control the output frequency of each PLL. Control bits from the registers set
the PLL dividers to the values that achieve the required output frequency.
Two SCC registers control each PLL and send a:
•
6-bit word, CLKR, to the input divider.
•
13-bit word CLKF to the feedback divider.
•
4-bit word CLKOD to the output divider.
The following equation provides the output frequency of each PLL:
Output frequency = Input frequency x
(CLKF + 1)
(CLKOD + 1)
x (CLKR + 1)
Figure 2-11 shows the structure of the test chip PLLS, A15 PLL0, and A7 PLL0 that have
divide-by-two blocks on their outputs.

Interrupts
This section describes the daughterboard interrupts. It consists of the following subsections:
•
Overview of interrupts
•
Interrupts on page 2-35.
2.8.1
Overview of interrupts
The Cortex-A15 MPCore test chip implements a Generic Interrupt Controller, GIC-400, with
32 internal interrupts and 160 external interrupts as follows:
Internal interrupts
The 32 internal interrupts connect internally between the cores and the GIC.
External interrupts
•
The IOFPGA on the motherboard connects to 26 of the 160 external
interrupts through the SB.
•
The Cortex-A15 cluster connect to 8 of the external interrupts.
•
The Cortex-A7 cluster connect to 12 of the external interrupts.
•
The test chip peripherals connect to 21 of the external interrupts.
•
65 external interrupts are reserved.
The CoreTile Express A15×2 A7×3 daughterboard does not send interrupts to the second
daughterboard. You can route interrupts to the CoreTile Express A15×2 A7×3 daughterboard
from the second daughterboard through the motherboard IOFPGA using SB2_INT[3:0] that
loops back to SB_IRQ. Table 2-11 on page 2-35 shows the interrupt mapping.
Figure 2-13 on page 2-35 shows an overview of the Cortex-A15_A7 MPCore test chip interrupt
signals.

HDLCD
An ARM HDLCD controller in the Cortex-A15_A7 MPCore test chip provides graphic display
capabilities. The controller is a frame buffer device that is capable of displaying up to
1920×1080p pixel resolution at 60Hz with a 165MHz pixel clock from OSCCLK 5. The MMB
connects the 24-bit RGB data directly between the test chip and the motherboard through the
HDRY header. The multiplexer FPGA on the motherboard can select this bus to drive the analog
and digital interfaces for the DVI connector using the motherboard SYS_CFG register interface.
See the Motherboard Express µATX Technical Reference Manual.
The HDLCD frame buffer is located in DDR2 memory serviced by the DMC from the test chip
bus matrix. This ensures maximum data bandwidth between the Cortex-A15_A7 MPCore
cluster, the HDLCD controller, and DDR2 memory without accessing off-chip devices.
Figure 2-14 shows a functional overview of the HDLCD controller and its connections to the
Cortex-A15 test chip and the motherboard.
See Appendix B HDLCD controller for a full description of the HDLCD controller.

DDR2 memory interface
The Cortex-A15 DDR2 memory interface uses a DMC-400 Dynamic Memory Controller
(DMC). By default, the DMC runs asynchronously to the AXI matrix so that the AXI
sub-system does not impose frequency limitations on the DMC interface.
Figure 2-15 shows a functional overview of the DDR2 memory interface.

Debug
You can attach a JTAG debugger to the daughterboard JTAG connector to execute programs to
the daughterboard and debug them. For convenience, connect the cable from the rear panel
JTAG connector to the daughterboard JTAG. For example, you can connect a software debugger,
such as the DS-5 debugger, to this debug interface using an external DSTREAM debug and trace
unit.
Note
The daughterboard does not support adaptive clocking. The RTCK signal is tied LOW on the
JTAG ICE connector.
See Figure 1-1 on page 1-3 for the location of the JTAG ICE connector.
Figure 2-16 on page 2-41 shows an overview of the CoreSight system.

Daughterboard memory map
The Cortex-A15_A7 test chip supports the 40-bit Large Physical Address Extension (LPAE).
The programmers model is based on the Cortex-A Series memory map with support for 2GB of
contiguous DDR memory that is located at 0x00_8000_0000.
The test chip SMC is located at 0x00_0000_0000 and supports up to six chip selects. The test chip
internal peripherals are located at 0x00_2000_0000, Cortex-A15_A7 ACP at 0x00_3000_0000, and
external AXI at 0x00_4000_0000.
The memory map supports a remap option at 0x00_0000_0000 that can select SMC or external
AXI.
A typical system boots from SMC CS0 that addresses the motherboard NOR flash 0. See
Remapping memory on page 3-5. After DDR2 configuration is complete, the exception vectors
are moved into the DDR2 area using the CoreSight vector offset registers.
3.2.1
Overview of daughterboard memory map
Figure 3-1 on page 3-4 shows the daughterboard memory map and the remap options. SCC Test
chip SCC Register 4 on page 3-19 controls the remap options. See Remapping memory on

•
Chip-select Remap on page 3-6.
SMC or AXI
SCC register bits CFGREG4[1:0] control whether AXI or SMC is mapped to the lower 512MB
of memory. This enables booting from external AXI. One SMC option also selects external AXI
enabled, and the other SMC option selects external AXI disabled. See Test chip SCC Register 4
on page 3-19.

Chip-select Remap
SCC register bits CFGREG4[5:4] control whether CS0 or CS4 is addressed at address
0x00_0000_0000. See Test chip SCC Register 4 on page 3-19.
Note
Chip-select remap operates only when you map SMC to 0x00_0000_0000.
The processor fetches its first instructions from address 0x00_0000_0000, but the actual memory
read depends on the remapped memory region.
Memory remapping at power-on during run-time
You can configure the remap option at power-on or during run time as follows:
Remapping at power-on
Use the board.txt file if the remap option is required when the processor starts
from a reset. The SCC: 0x000 entry in the board.txt file controls the settings for
the SCC register CFGREG4. See Versatile Express™ Configuration Technical
Reference Manual.
Remapping during run time
Write directly to the SCC register CFGREG0 to change remapping after
power-on. See Test chip SCC Register 4 on page 3-19. See the Boot Monitor
sys_boot.s file for an example of reconfiguring while running.
Caution
ARM recommends that you use the configuration file rather than directly writing to the control
registers. You must perform remapping during run-time with care. Do not do this when code is
running from the remapped area.

Test chip SCC registers
This section describes the SCC registers. It contains the following subsections:
•
Test chip SCC register overview
•
Test chip SCC register summary on page 3-13
•
Test chip SCC register descriptions on page 3-17.
3.3.1
Test chip SCC register overview
The SCC register interface enables configuration at power-up in addition to the reading and
writing of system parameters. The SCC registers use a dedicated interface to the Daughterboard
Configuration Controller that communicates with the MCC over an SPI interface.
The MCC on the motherboard reads the config.txt and board.txt configuration files and uses
the Daughterboard Configuration Controller to configure the motherboard and attached
daughterboards. The Daughterboard Configuration Controller loads some of the registers in the
test chip SCC.
Run-time read and write operations are performed through the SYS_CFG registers, or directly
through the APB interface at base address 0x00_7FFF_0000.
Note
ARM recommends that, where possible, you perform all system configuration by loading
configuration files into the microSD card on the motherboard rather than writing directly to the
test chip controller. The settings in the board.txt file are applied to the daughterboard before
reset is released.
You can read and write to the Cortex-A15_A7 test chip SCC registers as follows:
ARM DDI 0503F
ID062813
•
The interface supports word writes to the configuration controller registers.
•
Writes to read-only registers are ignored.
•
Writes to unused words fail.
•
ARM recommends that you use a read-modify-write sequence to update the configuration
controller registers.
•
Read accesses to the peripheral support reading back 32 bits of the register at a time.
•
Reads from unused words in the register return zero.
•
The base address of the SCC registers is 0x00_7FFF_0000.

3.3.3
Mask operation to define SMC chip select address ranges
The following registers enable you to define SMC Chip Select (CS) base addresses by defining
the 7th and 8th hexadecimal digits of each base addresses:
•
Test chip SCC Register 0 on page 3-17
•
Test chip SCC Register 1 on page 3-17
•
Test chip SCC Register 2 on page 3-18
•
Test chip SCC Register 3 on page 3-19.
Each register defines two base addresses, and each base address is defined by 8 match bits and
by 8 mask bits.

Programmers Model
In each register:
•
Bits[31:24] and bits[15:8] are the match bits.
•
Bits[23:16] and bits[7:0] are the mask bits.
The 8 match bits modified by the 8 mask bits represent the 7th and 8th digits of the SMC base
address as follows:
b0 in mask register
Masked. Corresponding bit in match register is Don’t Care, X.
b1 in mask register
Not masked. Corresponding bit in match register is unchanged.
Example 3-1 Defining SMC CS4 base address
The match bits of SMC CS4 base address are b00001100, and the mask bits are b11111100. See
Test chip SCC Register 2 on page 3-18. The result of the mask operation is b000011XX.
This means that the 8th and 7th digits of the base address of SMC CS4 have the value 0x0C. Test
chip circuitry generates the address range of SMC CS4 as 0x00_0C00_0000 to 0x00_0FFF_FFFF,
that is a range of 64MB. See Figure 3-1 on page 3-4 and Table 3-1 on page 3-5.
Example 3-2 Defining SMC CS0 base address
The match bits of SMC CS0 base address are b00000000, and the mask bits are b11110100. See
Test chip SCC Register 0 on page 3-17. The result of the mask operation is b0000X0XX.
This means the 8th and 7th digits of the base address of SMC CS0 have two values that are 0x00
and 0x08. Test chip circuitry generates the address ranges of SMC CS0 as 0x00_0000_0000 to
0x00_03FF_FFFF and 0x00_0800_0000 to 0x00_0BFF_FFFF. Each range is 64MB. See Figure 3-1 on

CA7_EVENTSTREAM
Recommends boot firmware or operating system action:
b0
Do not implement CA7 event stream
generation
b1
Implement CA7 event stream generation.
The default is b1.
This bit has no direct effect but when it is b1, it acts as a hint
to the software to enable a work-around for the
Cortex-A15_A7 defect which prevents delivery of events
between the CA15 and CA7 clusters when they operate at
certain combinations of OPPs.
To implement the work-around, the software uses the system
counter to generate periodic wake-up events. The software
implementation defines the frequency at which it generates
the wake-up events.
The software must enable event stream generation for each
core after a warm or cold reset.
[14]
CA15_EVENTSTREAM
Recommends boot firmware or operating system action:
Do not implement CA15 event stream

NONBOOT_CLUSTER_PWRDWN_ENABLE
Recommends boot firmware or operating system action:
Do not power down the non-boot cluster.
b1
Power down the non-boot cluster.
The default is b1.
This bit has no direct effect but when it is b1it acts as a hint to
the software to power down the non-boot cluster early in the
cold boot process. Before it does this, the software must
ensure that another software entity, such as an operating
system, can power up the cluster at a later time.
This feature is relevant only if the Daughterboard
Configuration Controller powers up both the CA15 and CA7
clusters during cold reset of the CoreTile Express A15x2
A7x3 daughterboard.

PM_PERCORE_MBOX_ENABLE
Recommends boot firmware or operating system action:
Do not use per-core mailboxes for power
management.
b1
Use per-core mailboxes for power
management.
The default is b1.
Unless the operating system intervenes, the software stack
uses the Motherboard Express μATX SYS_FLAGS system
register to:
•
Power up the non-boot cores after the boot-core has
performed the necessary platform setup.
•
Distinguish between a warm reset and a cold reset.
•
Determine the common branch address for all cores
after a warm reset.
This bit has no direct effect but when it is b1it acts as a hint
from the operating system to the boot firmware to use the
per-core SPC mailbox registers to:
•
Distinguish between a warm reset, a cold reset and a
spurious reset of a core, possibly in conjunction with
another software-defined method. This includes the
ability to independently power up each non-boot core
after a cold reset.
•
Determine the branch address of a core after a warm
reset.
This enables the operating system to implement a full power
management system and ensure that the boot firmware
complies with that implementation.

This bit has no direct effect but when it is b1 it acts as a hint to
the software, such as the boot software, to enable bit[7] of the
CA15 Auxiliary Control Register for each core in the CA15.
This results in WFE instructions being executed as NOP
instructions.

HDRX HSB multiplexing scheme
A bus multiplexing scheme is necessary to reduce the number of pins required on the HDRX
header for the 64-bit AXI master on the HSBM bus. The LogicTile Express daughterboard must
implement a similar multiplexing scheme to be compatible with the CoreTile Express signals.
OSCCLK 4 on the CoreTile Express A15×2 daughterboard generates the AXI master bus clock.
This clocks the test chip master multiplex and demultiplex logic. This logic is positive- and
negative-edge triggered to avoid the requirement for a PLL or double-rate clock in the test chip.
Double edge clocking also enables operation at low speed for use with emulation systems.
Note
All signals on the HSB (M) bus are 1.8V.
Figure A-2 shows a simplified block diagram of the multiplexing scheme for the AXI bus.

Debug and trace connectors
This section describes the debug and trace connectors on the daughterboard.
•
A.4.1
Caution
Your external debug interface unit must adapt its interface voltages to the voltage level of
the daughterboard JTAG. All the trace and JTAG signals operate at 1.8V.
JTAG connector
The daughterboard provides the JTAG connector to enable connection of DSTREAM or a
compatible third-party debugger. Figure A-3 shows the JTAG connector.
•
•
Note
EDBGRQ has a pull-down resistor to 0V. The daughterboard does not support adaptive
clocking and RTCK has a pull-down resistor to 0V. All other signal connections on the
P-JTAG connector have pull-up resistors to 1V8.
Pins 7 and 9 of the JTAG connector are dual-mode pins that enable the Cortex-A15_A7
test chip to support both the JTAG and SWD protocols.

Trace connectors
The test chip supports up to 32-bit trace output from the CoreSight Trace Port Interface Unit
(TPIU) and enables connection of a compatible trace unit. See Figure 2-16 on page 2-41. Two
MICTOR trace connectors, labeled Trace Dual and Trace Single, are connected to the TPIU.
The two connectors, when used together, support 32-bit trace, and the connector labeled Trace
Single, when used alone, supports 16-bit trace.

Note
DSTREAM is an example of a trace module that you can use.
All the trace and JTAG signals operate at 1.8V.
The trace connector cannot supply power to a trace unit.
The interface does not support the TRACE_CTL signal. This is always driven LOW.
Figure A-4 shows the MICTOR connector, part number AMP 2-5767004-2.

B.1
Introduction
This appendix describes the LCD controller supporting High Definition (HD) resolutions.
The HDLCD controller has the following features:
•
Resolution of 2048×2048, sufficient for full 1080p HDTV resolution.
•
Frame buffer:
•
—
Supports all common non-indexed RGB formats.
—
Frame buffer can be placed anywhere in memory.
—
Scan lines must be a multiple of 8 bytes long, and aligned to 8-byte boundaries.
There are no other restrictions on size or placement. Line pitch is configurable in
multiples of 8 bytes.
Management:
—
Frame buffer address can be updated at any time, and applies from the next full
frame.
—
Frame buffer size, color depth, and timing can only be changed while the display is
disabled.
•
Maskable interrupts:
— DMA-end, last part of frame read from bus.
— VSYNC.
— Underrun.
— Bus error.
•
Color depths:
—
ARM DDI 0503F
ID062813
Supports 8 bits per color. Frame buffers with other color depths are truncated or
interpolated to 8 bits per component.
•
Interfaces:
— AMBA 3 APB interface for configuration.
— Read-only AXI bus for frame buffer reads.
— Standard LCD external interface. All timings and polarities are configurable.
— APB, AXI, and pixel clock can run on separate asynchronous clocks.
•
Buffering:
—
Internal 2KB buffer.
—
After underrun, it blanks the rest of the frame and resynchronizes from the next
frame.

Register descriptions
This section describes the HDLCD controller registers. Table B-1 on page B-3 provides cross
references to individual registers.
Version Register
The VERSION Register characteristics are:
Purpose
Holds a static version number for the LCD controller. Changes to the
processor that affect registers and data structures increment the
VERSION_MAJOR value and reset the VERSION_MINOR value.
Other changes that do not affect the binary compatibility only increment
the VERSION_MINOR number.
Usage constraints There are no usage constraints.
Configurations
Available in all HDLCD configurations.
Attributes
See Table B-1 on page B-3.

[7:0]
VERSION_MINOR
These bits provide the minor product version information.
For release r0p0, the value is 0x00.
Interrupt Raw Status Register
The INT_RAWSTAT Register characteristics are:
Purpose
Shows the unmasked status of the interrupt sources. Writing a 1 to the bit
of an interrupt source forces this bit to be set and generate an interrupt if it
is not masked by the corresponding bit in the Interrupt Mask Register on
page B-7. Writing a 0 to the bit of an interrupt source has no effect.
Use the Interrupt Clear Register on page B-6 to clear interrupts.
Usage constraints There are no usage constraints.
Configurations
Available in all HDLCD controller configurations.

This interrupt triggers when the last piece of data for a frame has been read. The DMA immediately
continues on the next frame, so this interrupt only ensures that the frame buffer for the previous frame is no
longer required.
Interrupt Clear Register
The INT_CLEAR Register characteristics are:
Purpose
Clears interrupt sources. Writing a 1 to the bit of an asserted source clears
the interrupt in the Interrupt Raw Status Register on page B-5, and in the
Interrupt Status Register on page B-8 if it is not masked.
Usage constraints There are no usage constraints.

Interrupt Status Register
The INT_STATUS Register characteristics are:
Purpose
Interrupt Raw Status Register on page B-5 ANDed with the Interrupt
Mask Register on page B-7 and shows the active and masked interrupt
sources. Bits selected by the Interrupt Mask Register on page B-7 are
active in the Interrupt Status Register. These bits show the status of the
interrupt sources. Bits not selected by the interrupt mask are inactive. If
any of the sources are asserted in the Interrupt Status Register, then the
external IRQ line is asserted.

Note
If the scan line length does not end up at a multiple of the permitted burst lengths, the
controller uses smaller bursts to read the remaining few pixels in each scan line. If no
bursts are permitted, this mechanism also triggers, and has the same effect as permitting
all bursts.
Incorrectly configuring this register can degrade the performance of both the LCD
controller and the rest of the system.
