Applies to: ARMv8-A
Most ARMv7-A (and earlier) implementations support two instruction sets, the 32-bit ARM instruction and 32/16-bit Thumb instruction set.
ARMv8-A AArch32 continues to support these two instruction sets, but they are renamed as A32 and T32 respectively.
The changes between ARMv8 T32/A32 Instruction Sets and ARMv7-A instruction set can be found in chapter 'ARMv8 Changes to the T32 and A32 Instruction Sets' of ARMv8 Architecture Reference Manual.
ARMv8-A additionally introduces the A64 instruction set, used in the AArch64 execution state.
