Course Outline:

  • Module 2: ARMv8-A 64-bit Overview
    - Introduces topics like: 64-bit virtual addressing, AArch64 vs AArch32, A64 ISA, LP64 and LLP64, instruction encodings, processor registers, exception levels
  • Module 3: Integer (General Purpose) Registers
    - 64-bit usage, Stack Pointer (SP), Program Counter (PC), Link Register (LR) and Exception Link Register (ELR), 32-bit arithmetic examples, 64-bit and 32-bit register relationship
  • Module 4: Processing Element State (PState)
    - PState Register, Flag/Status bits, Extension/Control bits, DAIF and interrupt control, stack select, MRS, MSR and System Registers, PState and SPSRs
  • Module 5a: A64 Instructions
    - v7-A instruction functionality changes, AArch32, v8-A Jazelle and Java Bytecodes, listing instruction categories with examples of each (arithmetic, logic, etc.), instruction encoding
  • Module 5b: A64 Instructions
    - PC relative addressing, bit manipulation, branch and subroutine call, branch prediction, conditional branches and condition codes
  • Module 6: System Instructions and Calling Conventions
