__usad8 intrinsic

This intrinsic inserts a USAD8 instruction into the instruction stream generated by the compiler. It enables you to perform four unsigned 8-bit subtractions, and add the absolute values of the differences together, returning the result as a single unsigned integer.

unsigned int __usad8(unsigned int val1, unsigned int val2)

Where:

val1

holds the first four 8-bit operands for the subtractions

val2

holds the second four 8-bit operands for the subtractions.

The __usad8 intrinsic returns the sum of the absolute differences of:

  • the subtraction of the first byte in the second operand from the first byte in the first operand

  • the subtraction of the second byte in the second operand from the second byte in the first operand

  • the subtraction of the third byte in the second operand from the third byte in the first operand

  • the subtraction of the fourth byte in the second operand from the fourth byte in the first operand.

The sum is returned as a single unsigned integer.

Example:

unsigned int subtract_add_abs(unsigned int val1, unsigned int val2)
{
  unsigned int res;

    res = __usad8(val1,val2); /* absdiff1 = val1[7:0] - val2[7:0]
                                 absdiff2 = val1[15:8] - val2[15:8]
                                 absdiff3 = val1[23:16] - val2[23:16]
                                 absdiff4 = val1[31:24] - val2[31:24]
                                 res[31:0] = absdiff1 + absdiff2 + absdiff3
                                  + absdiff4
                              */
    return res;
}
