EXT

Extract vector from pair of vectors.

Copy the indexed byte up to the last byte of the first source vector to the bottom of the result vector, then fill the remainder of the result starting from the first byte of the second source vector. The result is placed destructively in the destination and first source vector, or constructively in the destination vector. This instruction is unpredicated.

An index that is greater than or equal to the vector length in bytes is treated as zero, resulting in the first source vector being copied to the result unchanged.

It has encodings from 2 classes: Constructive and Destructive

Assembler Symbols

<Zd>

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

<Zn1>

Is the name of the first scalable vector register of a multi-vector sequence, encoded in the "Zn" field.

<Zn2>

Is the name of the second scalable vector register of a multi-vector sequence, encoded in the "Zn" field.

<Zdn>

Is the name of the first source and destination scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zdn" field.

<Zm>

Is the name of the second source scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zm" field.

<imm>

Is the unsigned immediate operand, in the range 0 to 255, encoded in the "imm8h:imm8l" fields.

Operation

CheckSVEEnabled();
integer elements = VL DIV esize;
bits(VL) operand1 = Z[s1];
bits(VL) operand2 = Z[s2];
bits(VL) result;

if position >= elements then
    position = 0;

position = position << 3;
bits(VL*2) concat = operand2 : operand1;
result = concat<position+VL-1:position>;

Z[dst] = result;

Operational information

If PSTATE.DIT is 1:

  • 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.
