VABAL

Vector Absolute Difference and Accumulate Long subtracts the elements of one vector from the corresponding elements of another vector, and accumulates the absolute values of the results into the elements of the destination vector.

Operand elements are all integers of the same length, and the result elements are double the length of the operands.

Depending on settings in the CPACR, NSACR, and HCPTR registers, and the Security state and PE mode in which the instruction is executed, an attempt to execute the instruction might be undefined, or trapped to Hyp mode. For more information see Enabling Advanced SIMD and floating-point support.

It has encodings from the following instruction sets: A32 ( A1 ) and T32 ( T1 ) .

Assembler Symbols

<c>

For encoding A1: see Standard assembler syntax fields. This encoding must be unconditional.

For encoding T1: see Standard assembler syntax fields.

<q>

See Standard assembler syntax fields.

<dt> Is the data type for the elements of the operands, encoded in U:size:
U size <dt>
0 00 S8
0 01 S16
0 10 S32
1 00 U8
1 01 U16
1 10 U32
<Qd>

Is the 128-bit name of the SIMD&FP destination register, encoded in the "D:Vd" field as <Qd>*2.

<Dn>

Is the 64-bit name of the first SIMD&FP source register, encoded in the "N:Vn" field.

<Dm>

Is the 64-bit name of the second SIMD&FP source register, encoded in the "M:Vm" field.

Operation

    for r = 0 to regs-1
        for e = 0 to elements-1

            op2 = Elem[Din[m+r],e,esize];
            absdiff = Abs(Int(op1,unsigned) - Int(op2,unsigned));
            if long_destination then
                Elem[Q[d>>1],e,2*esize] = Elem[Qin[d>>1],e,2*esize] + absdiff;

                Elem[D[d+r],e,esize] = Elem[Din[d+r],e,esize] + absdiff;

Operational information

If CPSR.DIT is 1 and this instruction passes its condition execution check:

  • The execution time of this instruction is independent of:
    • The values of the data supplied in any of its registers.
    • The values of the NZCV flags.
  • The response of this instruction to asynchronous exceptions does not vary based on:
    • The values of the data supplied in any of its registers.
    • The values of the NZCV flags.
