4.7.48. C55x intrinsics

The ARM compiler supports the emulation of selected TI C55x compiler intrinsics.

To make use of the TI C55x intrinsics in your own code, include the standard header file c55x.h. The intrinsics supplied in c55x.h are listed in Table 4.15.

Table 4.15. TI C55x intrinsics supported in RVCT



#include <limits.h>
#include <stdint.h>
#include <c55x.h>       // include TI C55x intrinsics

__asm int32_t asm_lsadd(int32_t a, int32_t b)
    qadd r0, r0, r1
    bx lr}

int32_t foo(int32_t a, int32_t b)
    int32_t c, d, e;

    c = asm_lsadd(a, b);  // assembly language saturating add
    d = __qadd(a, b);     // ARM intrinsic saturating add
    e = _lsadd(a, b);     // TI C55x saturating add
    return c == d == e;   // returns 1
