Zynq Ultrascale+ APM range registers



Can someone explain the usage of the range registers in the APM of Zynq Ultrascale+? Each range register has two fields of 16-bits each: 


RANGE_HIGH 31:16 - Contains the HIGHER limit of a range
RANGE_LOW 15:0 - Contains the LOWER limit of a range


My first understanding is that a range register would filter the address in which the event would be measured. However, an address has 64-bits and the low and high ranges have only 16-bits. So, something is still unclear.


I would appreciate a concrete example in the usage of these range registers.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Zynq Ultrascale+ APM range registers

Hello @giovanig,


The Range Incrementer compares the event count with the low and high ranges from the
Range register and increments the count by one if the value falls within the limits.

Please check with thepage number 10 in pg037 for better understanding
