Core component chapters

Every core component has a unique capitalized name or an abbreviation of its name, e.g. LED, used for identification and reference. This name is used in chapter headings and references, and it will appear in the C-code header file to identify the component.

The core component instance name, which is different from the core component name, is constructed using the core component name followed by a numbered postfix, starting with 0, for example, LED0. A postfix is normally only used if a core component can be instantiated more than once. The core component instance name is also used in the C-code header file to identify the core component instance.

The chapters describing core components may include the following information:

  • A detailed functional description of the core component
  • Register configuration for the core component
  • Electrical specification tables, containing performance data which apply for the operating conditions described in Recommended operating conditions.
