## SLI

Shift Left and Insert (immediate). This instruction reads each vector element in the source SIMD&FP register, left shifts each vector element by an immediate value, and inserts the result into the corresponding vector element in the destination SIMD&FP register such that the new zero bits created by the shift are not inserted but retain their existing value. Bits shifted out of the left of each vector element in the source register are lost.

The following figure shows an example of the operation of shift left by 3 for an 8-bit vector element.

Depending on the settings in the CPACR_EL1, CPTR_EL2, and CPTR_EL3 registers, and the current Security state and Exception level, an attempt to execute the instruction might be trapped.

It has encodings from 2 classes: Scalar and Vector

### Scalar

 31 30 29 28 27 26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 != 0000 immb 0 1 0 1 0 1 Rn Rd immh

#### Scalar

SLI <V><d>, <V><n>, #<shift>

```integer d = UInt(Rd);
integer n = UInt(Rn);

if immh<3> != '1' then UNDEFINED;
integer esize = 8 << 3;
integer datasize = esize;
integer elements = 1;

integer shift = UInt(immh:immb) - esize;```

### Vector

 31 30 29 28 27 26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 0 Q 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 != 0000 immb 0 1 0 1 0 1 Rn Rd immh

#### Vector

SLI <Vd>.<T>, <Vn>.<T>, #<shift>

```integer d = UInt(Rd);
integer n = UInt(Rn);

if immh == '0000' then SEE(asimdimm);
if immh<3>:Q == '10' then UNDEFINED;
integer esize = 8 << HighestSetBit(immh);
integer datasize = if Q == '1' then 128 else 64;
integer elements = datasize DIV esize;

integer shift = UInt(immh:immb) - esize;```

### Operation

```CheckFPAdvSIMDEnabled64();
bits(datasize) operand = V[n];
bits(datasize) operand2 = V[d];
bits(datasize) result;
bits(esize) shifted;

for e = 0 to elements-1
shifted = LSL(Elem[operand, e, esize], shift);
Elem[result, e, esize] = (Elem[operand2, e, esize] AND NOT(mask)) OR shifted;
V[d] = result;```

### Operational information

If PSTATE.DIT is 1:

• The execution time of this instruction is independent of:
