ARM Cortex-R7 :: MPU Region Access Control Register (DRACR) Documentation

Hi all,

there is a remarkable difference in the encoding of the MPU Region Access Control Register setting (DRACR) documentation in :

- the (actual) TRM : DDI0458D_cortex_r7_trm.pdf (TRM Rev D. Dec 2016)
compared with the (actual) architecture refernce manual : DDI0406C_d_armv7ar_arm.pdf (29 March 2018 )


Table 8-2 TEX[2:0], C, and B encodings (page 152 DDI0458D_cortex_r7_trm.pdf)

TEX[2:0] C B Description Memory type Shareable?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
000 0 0 Strongly Ordered. Strongly Ordered Shareable
000 0 1 Shareable Device. Device Shareable
000 1 0 Reserved. - -                                                                << "Reserved" for TEX = 000, C = 1, B = 0
                                                                                                  << encoding for "000 11" missing
001 0 0 Outer and Inner Non-cacheable. Normal S bit

Table B5-4 C, B and TEX[2:0] encodings (page 1754 in DDI0406C_d_armv7ar_arm.pdf)

TEX[2:0] C B Description Memory type Shareable?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
000 0 0 Strongly-ordered Strongly-ordered Shareable

000 1 0 Outer and Inner Write-Through, no Write-Allocate Normal S bita                            << "normal" write through for TEX = 000, C = 1, B = 0
000 1 1 Outer and Inner Write-Back, no Write-Allocate Normal S bita                                  << "normal" write back for TEX = 000, C = 1,  B = 1

001 0 0 Outer and Inner Non-cacheable Normal S bita

Which documentation is correct for the CortexR7 ?

  • First of all it's very disapointing, that arm leave us behind with this question.

    We think that the description in the Architecture manual is right at this point,

    The Lauterbach Trace32 debugger decode the mpu regions by using the settings from this Manual.
