SHARC ADSP-21363 silicon revision register

How do you access the silicon revision number via software in the SHARC ADSP-21363?  I know the Blackfin has this register and I thought the SHARC did too, but can't find it in the documentation.

  • A silicon revision number with the form "-x.x" is branded on all parts (see the data sheet for information on reading part branding). The silicon revision can also be electronically read by reading the REVPID register either via JTAG or DSP code.

    The following DSP code can be used to read the register:

    <UREG> = REVPID;

    Silicon REVISION      REVPID[7:4]

         0.5                                 0101

         0.3                                 0011
