Blackfin Instruction set

The Blackfin processor instruction set is optimized so that 16-bit opcodes represent the most frequently used instructions. Complex DSP instructions are encoded into 32-bit opcodes as multifunction instructions. Blackfin products support a limited multi-issue capability, where a 32-bit instruction can be issued in parallel with two 16-bit instructions. This allows the programmer to use many of the core resources in a single instruction cycle.

The Blackfin processor assembly language uses an algebraic syntax. The architecture is optimized for use with the C compiler.

Instructions are broken down into various groups
