Description ¶

The AFFINEB instruction computes an affine transformation in the Galois Field 28. For this instruction, an affine transformation is defined by A * x + b where “A” is an 8 by 8 bit matrix, and “x” and “b” are 8-bit vectors. One SIMD register (operand 1) holds “x” as either 16, 32 or 64 8-bit vectors. A second SIMD (operand 2) register or memory operand contains 2, 4, or 8 “A” values, which are operated upon by the correspondingly aligned 8 “x” values in the first register. The “b” vector is constant for all calculations and contained in the immediate byte.

The EVEX encoded form of this instruction does not support memory fault suppression. The SSE encoded forms of the instruction require16B alignment on their memory operations.

Operation ¶

```define parity(x):
t := 0 // single bit
FOR i := 0 to 7:
t = t xor x.bit[i]
return t
define affine_byte(tsrc2qw, src1byte, imm):
FOR i := 0 to 7:
* parity(x) = 1 if x has an odd number of 1s in it, and 0 otherwise.*
retbyte.bit[i] := parity(tsrc2qw.byte[7-i] AND src1byte) XOR imm8.bit[i]
return retbyte
```
