Signed Multiply-Accumulate Wide, with one 32-bit and one 16-bit operand, and a 32-bit accumulate value, providing the top 32 bits of the result.


SMLAW<y>{cond} Rd, Rn, Rm, Ra



is either B or T. B means use the bottom half (bits [15:0]) of Rm, T means use the top half (bits [31:16]) of Rm.


is an optional condition code.


is the destination register.

Rn, Rm

are the registers holding the values to be multiplied.


is the register holding the value to be added.


SMLAWy multiplies the signed 16-bit integer from the selected half of Rm by the signed 32-bit integer from Rn, adds the top 32 bits of the 48-bit result to the 32-bit value in Ra, and places the result in Rd.

Register restrictions

You cannot use PC for any operand.

You can use SP in A32 instructions but this is deprecated. You cannot use SP in T32 instructions.

Condition flags

This instruction does not affect the N, Z, C, or V flags.

If overflow occurs in the accumulation, SMLAWy sets the Q flag.


The 32-bit instruction is available in A32 and T32.

For the ARMv7-M architecture, the 32-bit T32 instruction is only available in an ARMv7E-M implementation.

There is no 16-bit version of this instruction in T32.
