12.40 VLDn (single n-element structure to one lane)

Vector Load single n-element structure to one lane.

Syntax

VLDn{cond}.datatype list, [Rn{@align}]{!}

VLDn{cond}.datatype list, [Rn{@align}], Rm

where:

n

must be one of 1, 2, 3, or 4.

cond

is an optional condition code.

datatype

see the following table.

list

is the list of NEON registers enclosed in braces, { and }. See the following table for options.

Rn

is the ARM register containing the base address. Rn cannot be PC.

align

specifies an optional alignment. See the following table for options.

!

if ! is present, Rn is updated to (Rn + the number of bytes transferred by the instruction). The update occurs after all the loads have taken place.

Rm

is an ARM register containing an offset from the base address. If Rm is present, the instruction updates Rn to (Rn + Rm) after using the address to access memory. Rm cannot be SP or PC.

Operation

VLDn loads one n-element structure from memory into one or more NEON registers. Elements of the register that are not loaded are unaltered.

a 

Every register in the list must be in the range D0-D31.

b 

align can be omitted. In this case, standard alignment rules apply.
