8.16 VFP vector mode

VFP vector mode allows you to use VFP instructions on vectors of floating-point numbers. ARM deprecates VFP vector mode.

Usually the VFP core only works on a single register. However, many VFP arithmetic instructions can also operate on vectors of up to eight single-precision or four double-precision numbers, enabling Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) vectorization.
In addition, the floating-point load and store instructions have multiple register forms, enabling vectors to be transferred to and from memory easily.

Note

ARM deprecates the use of VFP vector mode.
