NMSIS-Core implements the basic run-time system for a Nuclei N/NX Class Processors based device and gives the user access to the processor core and the device peripherals. In detail it defines:
Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for Nuclei processor registers with standardized definitions for the CSR Registers, TIMER, ECLIC, PMP Registers, DSP Registers, FPU registers, and Core Access Functions.
Standard core exception/interrupt names to interface to system exceptions or interrupts without having compatibility issues.
Methods to organize header files that makes it easy to learn new Nuclei micro-controller products and improve software portability. This includes naming conventions for device-specific interrupts.
Methods for system initialization to be used by each Device vendor. For example, the standardized
SystemInit()function is essential for configuring the clock system of the device.
Intrinsic functions used to generate CPU instructions that are not supported by standard C functions.
SystemCoreClockto determine the system clock frequency which simplifies the setup the timer.
