Load Register (literal) calculates an address from the PC value and an immediate offset, loads a word from memory, and writes it to a register. For information about memory accesses, see Load/Store addressing modes.
integer t = UInt(Rt); MemOp memop = MemOp_LOAD; boolean signed = FALSE; integer size; bits(64) offset; case opc of when '00' size = 4; when '01' size = 8; when '10' size = 4; signed = TRUE; when '11' memop = MemOp_PREFETCH; offset = SignExtend(imm19:'00', 64);
Is the 32-bit name of the general-purpose register to be loaded, encoded in the "Rt" field.
Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose register to be loaded, encoded in the "Rt" field.
Is the program label from which the data is to be loaded. Its offset from the address of this instruction, in the range +/-1MB, is encoded as "imm19" times 4.
bits(64) address = PC + offset; bits(size*8) data; if HaveMTEExt() then SetTagCheckedInstruction(FALSE); case memop of when MemOp_LOAD data = Mem[address, size, AccType_NORMAL]; if signed then X[t] = SignExtend(data, 64); else X[t] = data; when MemOp_PREFETCH Prefetch(address, t<4:0>);
If PSTATE.DIT is 1, the timing of this instruction is insensitive to the value of the data being loaded or stored.
