Run and analyze SVE code on non-SVE platforms

Arm Instruction Emulator (ArmIE) runs on AArch64 platforms and emulates SVE instructions. ArmIE enables you to compile SVE code with Arm Compiler and run the SVE binary without SVE-enabled hardware. Based on the DynamoRIO dynamic binary instrumentation framework, ArmIE enables the customized instrumentation of SVE binaries, which enables you to analyze specific aspects of runtime behavior.

Information regarding Arm Instruction Emulator

Q: What does Arm Instruction Emulator support?
Arm Instruction Emulator supports emulation and runtime analysis of all AArch64 and SVE instructions when running on Armv8-A compatible hardware.
Note: The emulator supports a subset of Armv8.2 instructions, namely fadd, fsub, fmul, fdiv, fmla, fmadd, fmls, fmsub, fneg, frsqrte, frsqrts, fmax, fmaxp, fcmp and fmov, and two Armv8.3 instructions, namely fcadd and fcmla.

Q: Which Linux distributions are supported?
Arm Instruction Emulator is available on several Linux distributions including Ubuntu, RHEL, and SUSE.

Q: Where can I find out more information about SVE and SVE2?
For more information about the Arm Scalable Vector Extension (SVE) and Scalable Vector Extension version two (SVE2), see our SVE information.
