DUP (immediate)

Broadcast signed immediate to vector elements (unpredicated).

Unconditionally broadcast the signed integer immediate into each element of the destination vector. This instruction is unpredicated.

The immediate operand is a signed value in the range -128 to +127, and for element widths of 16 bits or higher it may also be a signed multiple of 256 in the range -32768 to +32512 (excluding 0).

The immediate is encoded in 8 bits with an optional left shift by 8. The preferred disassembly when the shift option is specified is "#<simm8>, LSL #8". However an assembler and disassembler may also allow use of the shifted 16-bit value unless the immediate is 0 and the shift amount is 8, which must be unambiguously described as "#0, LSL #8".

This instruction is used by the aliases FMOV (zero, unpredicated), and MOV (immediate, unpredicated).

if !HaveSVE() then UNDEFINED;
if size:sh == '001' then UNDEFINED;
integer esize = 8 << UInt(size);
integer d = UInt(Zd);
integer imm = SInt(imm8);
if sh == '1' then imm = imm << 8;

Assembler Symbols


Is the name of the destination scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zd" field.

<T> Is the size specifier, encoded in size:
size <T>
00 B
01 H
10 S
11 D

Is a signed immediate in the range -128 to 127, encoded in the "imm8" field.

<shift> Is the optional left shift to apply to the immediate, defaulting to LSL #0 and encoded in sh:
sh <shift>
0 LSL #0
1 LSL #8


bits(VL) result = Replicate(imm<esize-1:0>);
Z[d] = result;

Operational information


  • 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.
