3. Store register to memory¶
3.1. Document conventions¶
Rt, Rn denote ARM registers R0-R7 except when stated otherwise.
immN represents an immediate
value having a width of N bits hence
imm5 is constrained to the range 0-31.
[Rn + imm5] is the
contents of the memory address obtained by adding Rn and the offset
imm5. Offsets are measured in
bytes. These instructions do not affect the condition flags.
3.2. Register Store¶
- str(Rt, [Rn, imm7])
[Rn + imm7] = RtStore a 32 bit word
- strb(Rt, [Rn, imm5])
[Rn + imm5] = RtStore a byte (b0-b7)
- strh(Rt, [Rn, imm6])
[Rn + imm6] = RtStore a 16 bit half word (b0-b15)
The specified immediate offsets are measured in bytes. Hence in the case of
str the 7 bit value
enables 32 bit word aligned values to be accessed with a maximum offset of 31 words. In the case of
6 bit value enables 16 bit half-word aligned values to be accessed with a maximum offset of 31 half-words.
