Previous: , Up: Xtensa Syntax   [Contents][Index] Register Names

The assembly syntax for a register file entry is the short name for a TIE register file followed by the index into that register file. For example, the general-purpose AR register file has a short name of a, so these registers are named a0a15. As a special feature, sp is also supported as a synonym for a1. Additional registers may be added by processor configuration options and by designer-defined TIE extensions. An initial $ character is optional in all register names.
