FMLS (vectors)

Floating-point fused multiply-subtract vectors (predicated), writing addend [Zda = Zda + -Zn * Zm].

Multiply the corresponding active floating-point elements of the first and second source vectors and subtract from elements of the third source (addend) vector without intermediate rounding. Destructively place the results in the destination and third source (addend) vector. Inactive elements in the destination vector register remain unmodified.

if size == '00' then UNDEFINED;

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

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

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


Is the name of the first source scalable vector register, encoded in the "Zn" field.


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

Operational information

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.
