hello,

I will buy the SABRE Development Board, which is based on the i.MX 6 processor. And my work on it is based on the architecture and I want to access to the PMU. So my question is if someone have try something like that by accessing to the PMU and extracting data from the available counters.

best regards,

MHD

PMU is part of ARM unit. It is not special for i.MX.
You'd better to check with ARM website.

Because it is very common. Linux has make it as module.

You can enable it.

If you check the code especially the assembly code for enabling PMU, you will find exacly what ARM says in ARM documents.
