The IrqMP is part of the GRLIB device library from Gaisler. It is a multiprocessor capable interrupt controller.
The controller supports among things the routing of interrupts to different processor cores, and also broadcasted interrupts.
Number of processors supported.
Enable extended IRQs.
Plug and play configuration word for APB plug-and-play.
Up to 16 CPUs supported. IfaceRef property should be connected to the different CPUs.
- IrqClientInterface0 through 15
IRQ acknowledge support for up to 16 CPUs
Memory access interface.
The IrqMp model implements the APB plug and play emulation. The APB controller should be connected to this interface.
Handles resets. Connect to from CPU or machine model to automatically reset the IrqMp device model when the system is reset.
The following deviations from real hardware are known to exist with this model:
Broadcasted interrupts are broadcasted at the current time to all CPUs, if it was triggered by a non-synchronised event, the interrupt is raised at different times on the different cores. Depending on the IRQ frequency and the configured quanta length, this may result in problems.
