MOV (scalar, predicated)

Move general-purpose register to vector elements (predicated).

Move the general-purpose scalar source register to each active element in the destination vector. Inactive elements in the destination vector register remain unmodified.

This is an alias of CPY (scalar). This means:

  • The encodings in this description are named to match the encodings of CPY (scalar).
  • The description of CPY (scalar) gives the operational pseudocode for this instruction.

MOV <Zd>.<T>, <Pg>/M, <R><n|SP>

is equivalent to

CPY <Zd>.<T>, <Pg>/M, <R><n|SP>

and is always the preferred disassembly.

Assembler Symbols

<Zd>

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
<Pg>

Is the name of the governing scalable predicate register P0-P7, encoded in the "Pg" field.

<R> Is a width specifier, encoded in size:
size <R>
01 W
x0 W
11 X
<n|SP>

Is the number [0-30] of the general-purpose source register or the name SP (31), encoded in the "Rn" field.

Operation

The description of CPY (scalar) gives the operational pseudocode for this instruction.

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 operand registers when its governing predicate register contains the same value for each execution.
    • 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 operand registers when its governing predicate register contains the same value for each execution.
    • The values of the NZCV flags.

This instruction might be immediately preceded in program order by a MOVPRFX instruction. The MOVPRFX instruction must conform to all of the following requirements, otherwise the behavior of the MOVPRFX and this instruction is unpredictable:

  • The MOVPRFX instruction must be unpredicated, or be predicated using the same governing predicate register and source element size as this instruction.
  • The MOVPRFX instruction must specify the same destination register as this instruction.
  • The destination register must not refer to architectural register state referenced by any other source operand register of this instruction.
