• MIPS SIMD Architecture Built-in Functions: |
GCC provides intrinsics to access the SIMD instructions provided by the
MSA MIPS SIMD Architecture. The interface is made available by including
<msa.h>
and using -mmsa -mhard-float -mfp64 -mnan=2008.
For each __builtin_msa_*
, there is a shortened name of the intrinsic,
__msa_*
.
MSA implements 128-bit wide vector registers, operating on 8-, 16-, 32- and
64-bit integer, 16- and 32-bit fixed-point, or 32- and 64-bit floating point
data elements. The following vectors typedefs are included in msa.h
:
v16i8
, a vector of sixteen signed 8-bit integers;
v16u8
, a vector of sixteen unsigned 8-bit integers;
v8i16
, a vector of eight signed 16-bit integers;
v8u16
, a vector of eight unsigned 16-bit integers;
v4i32
, a vector of four signed 32-bit integers;
v4u32
, a vector of four unsigned 32-bit integers;
v2i64
, a vector of two signed 64-bit integers;
v2u64
, a vector of two unsigned 64-bit integers;
v4f32
, a vector of four 32-bit floats;
v2f64
, a vector of two 64-bit doubles.
Instructions and corresponding built-ins may have additional restrictions and/or input/output values manipulated:
imm0_1
, an integer literal in range 0 to 1;
imm0_3
, an integer literal in range 0 to 3;
imm0_7
, an integer literal in range 0 to 7;
imm0_15
, an integer literal in range 0 to 15;
imm0_31
, an integer literal in range 0 to 31;
imm0_63
, an integer literal in range 0 to 63;
imm0_255
, an integer literal in range 0 to 255;
imm_n16_15
, an integer literal in range -16 to 15;
imm_n512_511
, an integer literal in range -512 to 511;
imm_n1024_1022
, an integer literal in range -512 to 511 left
shifted by 1 bit, i.e., -1024, -1022, …, 1020, 1022;
imm_n2048_2044
, an integer literal in range -512 to 511 left
shifted by 2 bits, i.e., -2048, -2044, …, 2040, 2044;
imm_n4096_4088
, an integer literal in range -512 to 511 left
shifted by 3 bits, i.e., -4096, -4088, …, 4080, 4088;
imm1_4
, an integer literal in range 1 to 4;
i32, i64, u32, u64, f32, f64
, defined as follows:
{ typedef int i32; #if __LONG_MAX__ == __LONG_LONG_MAX__ typedef long i64; #else typedef long long i64; #endif typedef unsigned int u32; #if __LONG_MAX__ == __LONG_LONG_MAX__ typedef unsigned long u64; #else typedef unsigned long long u64; #endif typedef double f64; typedef float f32; }
