4.8.5. MAR, MRA

XScale coprocessor 0 instructions.

Transfer between two general-purpose registers and a 40-bit internal accumulator.

Syntax

MAR{cond} Acc, RdLo, RdHi
MRA{cond} RdLo, RdHi, Acc

where:

cond

is an optional condition code (see Conditional execution).

Acc

is the internal accumulator. The standard name is accx,where x is an integer in the range 0-n. The value of n depends on the processor. It is 0 for current processors.

RdLo, RdHi

are general-purpose registers.

Usage

The MAR instruction copies the contents of RdLo to bits[31:0] of Acc, and the least significant byte of RdHi to bits[39:32] of Acc.

The MRA instruction:

  • copies bits[31:0] of Acc to RdLo

  • copies bits[39:32] of Acc to RdHi

  • sign extends the value by copying bit[39] of Acc to bits[31:8] of RdHi.

Architectures

These instructions are only available in XScale.
