Is the name of the SIMD and FP destination register

Is an arrangement specifier:

Vector half precision
Can be one of 4H or 8H.
Vector single-precision and double-precision
Can be one of 2S, 4S or 2D.
Is the name of the first SIMD and FP source register
Is the name of the second SIMD and FP source register

Architectures supported (vector)

Supported in the Arm®v8.2 architecture and later.


Floating-point Reciprocal Step. This instruction multiplies the corresponding floating-point values in the vectors of the two source SIMD and FP registers, subtracts each of the products from 2.0, places the resulting floating-point values in a vector, and writes the vector to the destination SIMD and FP register.

This instruction can generate a floating-point exception. Depending on the settings in FPCR, the exception results in either a flag being set in FPSR, or a synchronous exception being generated. For more information, see Floating-point exception traps in the Arm® Architecture Reference Manual Arm®v8, for Arm®v8‑A architecture profile.

Depending on the settings in the CPACR_EL1, CPTR_EL2, and CPTR_EL3 registers, and the current Security state and Exception level, an attempt to execute the instruction might be trapped.
