Introduction 1.1 About the ARM Developer Suite assemblers ARM Developer Suite (ADS) has:  a freestanding assembler, armasm  an optimizing inline assembler built into the C and C++ compilers. The language that these assemblers take as input is basically the same. However, there are limitations on what features of the language you can use in the inline assemblers. Refer to the Mixing C, C++, and Assembly Language chapter in ADS Developer Guide for further information on the inline assemblers

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language 2.1 Introduction This chapter gives a basic, practical understanding of how to write ARM and Thumb assembly language modules. It also gives information on the facilities provided by the ARM assembler (armasm). This chapter does not provide a detailed description of the ARM, Thumb, or VFP instruction sets. This information can be found in Chapter 4 ARM Instruction Reference, Chapter 5 Thumb Instruction Reference, and Chapter 6 Vector Floating-point Pr

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language 2.2 Overview of the ARM architecture This section gives a brief overview of the ARM architecture. ARM processors are typical of RISC processors in that they implement a load/store architecture. Only load and store instructions can access memory. Data processing instructions operate on register contents only. 2.2.1 Architecture versions The information and examples in this book assume that you are using a processor that implements ARM architecture v3 or

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language 2.2.3 Processor mode ARM processors support up to seven processor modes, depending on the architecture version. These are:  User  FIQ - Fast Interrupt Request  IRQ - Interrupt Request  Supervisor  Abort  Undefined  System (ARM architecture v4 and above). All modes except User mode are referred to as privileged modes. Applications that require task protection usually execute in User mode. Some embedded applications might run entirely in Supervisor

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language In User mode, r14 is used as a link register (lr) to store the return address when a subroutine call is made. It can also be used as a general-purpose register if the return address is stored on the stack. In the exception handling modes, r14 holds the return address for the exception, or a subroutine return address if subroutine calls are executed within an exception. r14 can be used as a general-purpose register if the return address is stored on t

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language 2.2.5 ARM instruction set overview All ARM instructions are 32 bits long. Instructions are stored word-aligned, so the least significant two bits of instruction addresses are always zero in ARM state. Some instructions use the least significant bit to determine whether the code being branched to is Thumb code or ARM code. See Chapter 4 ARM Instruction Reference for detailed information on the syntax of the ARM instruction set. ARM instructions can be

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language Single register load and store instructions These instructions load or store the value of a single register from or to memory. They can load or store a 32-bit word or an 8-bit unsigned byte. In ARM architecture v4 and above they can also load or store a 16-bit unsigned halfword, or load and sign extend a 16-bit halfword or an 8-bit byte. Multiple register load and store instructions These instructions load or store any subset of the general-purpose reg

Writing ARM and Thumb Assembly Language 2.2.6 ARM instruction capabilities The following general points apply to ARM instructions:  Conditional execution  Register access  Access to the inline barrel shifter. Conditional execution Almost all ARM instructions can be executed conditionally on the value of the ALU status flags in the CPSR. You do not need to use branches to skip conditional instructions, although it can be better to do so when a series of instructions depend on the same cond
