Nvidia Manufactured ARM® Cortex®-A57 and GPU (not dev board) Datasheet

I need that datasheet to do development. It is not the datasheet for the development board, but the CPU and GPU…can i just use the generic ARM® Cortex®-A57 datasheet for this?

Usually the manufacturer would provide a datasheet for the CPU specifics based on ARM design. My previous experience was with TI, they have excellent datasheet, so I am not sure that is the case for Nvidia. Also it would be great to have the datasheet for GPU as well, in particular the detailed descriptions for registers.


Hi blp_engineer, please refer to the “Tegra X1 (SoC) Technical Reference Manual”, available for download from here:


Got it. Thanks dusty_nv

In my experience, you don’t get that from any of the desktop GPU vendors.

(Surprisingly, Intel has a fairly open documentation policy for their open-source IGP drivers, but it’s still not a full programming manual that you could write your own driver based off of.)
