Shows a list of SAU region definitions with characteristics from:
  • SAU Region Number Register (SAU_RNR), located at address 0xE000EDD8.
  • SAU Region Base Address Register (SAU_RBAR) located at address 0xE000EDDC
  • SAU Region Limit Address Register (SAU_RLAR) located at address 0xE000EDE0.
  • SAU Type Register (SAU_TYPE), located at address 0xE000EDD4.


# Shows the number of implemented SAU regions.
EN Enable bit of the SAU region.
  • 0 (unchecked) - Region disabled.
  • 1 (checked) - Region enabled.
Start Address Is the region base address.
