Signed Saturate and Unsigned Saturate to any bit position, with optional shift before saturating.
SSAT saturates a signed value to a signed range.
USAT saturates a signed value to an unsigned

SSAT instruction applies the specified shift,
then saturates to the signed range -2sat-1 ≤
x ≤ 2sat-1 -1.
USAT instruction applies the specified shift,
then saturates to the unsigned range 0 ≤
2sat - 1.
You cannot use PC for any register.
You can use SP in ARM instructions but these are deprecated in ARMv6T2 and above. You cannot use SP in Thumb instructions.
If saturation occurs, these instructions set the Q flag. To

These ARM instructions are available in ARMv6 and above.
These 32-bit Thumb instructions are available in ARMv6T2 and above.
There are no 16-bit Thumb versions of these instructions.
