LDRH (register)

Load Register Halfword (register) calculates an address from a base register value and an offset register value, loads a halfword from memory, zero-extends it, and writes it to a register. For information about memory accesses, see Load/Store addressing modes.

Assembler Symbols

<Wt>

Is the 32-bit name of the general-purpose register to be transferred, encoded in the "Rt" field.

<Xn|SP>

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose base register or stack pointer, encoded in the "Rn" field.

<Wm>

When option<0> is set to 0, is the 32-bit name of the general-purpose index register, encoded in the "Rm" field.

<Xm>

When option<0> is set to 1, is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose index register, encoded in the "Rm" field.

<extend> Is the index extend/shift specifier, defaulting to LSL, and which must be omitted for the LSL option when <amount> is omitted. encoded in option:
option <extend>
010 UXTW
011 LSL
110 SXTW
111 SXTX
<amount> Is the index shift amount, optional only when <extend> is not LSL. Where it is permitted to be optional, it defaults to #0. It is encoded in S:
S <amount>
0 #0
1 #1

Shared Decode

integer n = UInt(Rn);
integer t = UInt(Rt);
integer m = UInt(Rm);

Operation

bits(64) offset = ExtendReg(m, extend_type, shift);
if HaveMTEExt() then
    SetNotTagCheckedInstruction(FALSE);

bits(64) address;
bits(16) data;

if n == 31 then
    CheckSPAlignment();
    address = SP[];
else
    address = X[n];

address = address + offset;

data = Mem[address, 2, AccType_NORMAL];
X[t] = ZeroExtend(data, 32);

Operational information

If PSTATE.DIT is 1, the timing of this instruction is insensitive to the value of the data being loaded or stored.
