System Control and Low-Power Features


This chapter introduces a group of memory-mapped registers inside the System Control Space of the Cortex®-M0/Cortex-M0+ processors, including their usages like vector table relocation and self-reset. It then covers the low-power features of the Cortex-M0 and Cortex-M0+ processors such as sleep modes and the optional Wake-up Interrupt Controller.
