Peripheral Simulation

For Atmel AT91M43300 — System Clock

Simulation support for this peripheral or feature is comprised of:

  • VTREGs (Virtual Target Registers) which support I/O with the peripheral.

These simulation capabilities are described below.

Data Type: unsigned long

The CLOCK VTREG contains the speed of the microcontroller instruction clock (in Hertz). This is effectively the number of 1-cycle instructions that the simulated microcontroller can execute each second. This number is derived by dividing the oscillator frequency (specified by the XTAL VTREG) by a fixed number. CLOCK is a read-only VTREG. It may not be changed directly. It changes when the value of the XTAL VTREG or the clock divisor (which is not available on all devices) changes.

Data Type: unsigned long

The XTAL VTREG contains the frequency of the oscillator (in Hertz) used to drive the microcontroller. The value is automatically set from the value specified in Project Options - Options for Target. However, you may change the value of XTAL using the command window. For example:


You may also output the current value of XTAL using the following:


XTAL may be used in calculations to synchronize external scripts with the simulated microcontroller.
