12.29 __smuad intrinsic

This intrinsic inserts an SMUAD instruction into the instruction stream generated by the compiler.

It enables you to perform two 16-bit signed multiplications, adding the products together. The Q bit is set if the addition overflows.

Syntax

unsigned int __smuad(unsigned int val1, unsigned int val2)

Where:

val1

holds the first halfword operands for each multiplication

val2

holds the second halfword operands for each multiplication.

Return value

The __smuad intrinsic returns the products of the two 16-bit signed multiplications.

Examples

unsigned int dual_multiply_prods(unsigned int val1, unsigned int val2)
{
    unsigned int res;
    res = __smuad(val1,val2); /* p1 = val1[15:0] × val2[15:0]
                                 p2 = val1[31:16] × val2[31:16]
                                 res[31:0] = p1 + p2
                               */
    return res;
}
