The processing system manager (PSM) is a processor in the LPD that controls the power islands in the PS. The PLM downloads firmware into the PSM RAM for the processor to execute.

The PSM includes global registers that are written by system software to request platform services. This functionality is explained in PSM Global Registers.

The PSM is a triple module redundant (TMR) MicroBlazeâ„¢ processor.
