Inthe bit ARM architecture was the most widely used architecture in mobile devices and the most popular bit one in architectude systems. R13 and R14 are banked across all privileged CPU modes except system mode.

October 9, This blog was originally posted on 11 September on blogs. This is a significant event that has important implications for the software community. It enables the software eco-system to develop openly for bit ARM applications, compilers, boot firmware and Operating Systems.
Why develop ARMv8-A? Technology trends and growing needs for larger memory footprints made it obvious that ARM would need a bit solution; it was only a matter of time… This in turn created interest in new markets for ARM. For example, some server class Operating Systems declared that they were going to be bit only.
It describes the registers, instructions, instruction encodings, exception model, virtual memory model including cache support and memory management, as well as the debug architecture. AArch64 execution state provides a single instruction set, A The ARM Foundation Model is a software platform to start early development — this snippet below is taken from the ARM web site: The ARMv8 Foundation Model is a virtual platform incorporating an AArch64 architecture simulation model along with essential peripherals for running a Linux operating system.
Multicore is configurable out-of-the-box, along with 4GB memory of simulation memory, persistent storage, and networking and basic instruction trace. Debug is via a GDB connection to a server running on the platform. The host platform support is bit Linux. It allows the software community to openly develop bit ARM software.
This is a significant event for the entire ARM eco-system. Note: Information previously published in an AArch64 Instruction set Overview document is included in the new manual.
