Move Top.

Syntax

MOVT{cond} Rd, #imm16

where:

cond

is an optional condition code.

You can generate any 32-bit immediate with a MOV, MOVT instruction pair. The assembler implements the MOV32 pseudo-instruction for convenient generation of this instruction pair.

Register restrictions

This instruction does not change the flags.
