The TI TMS320C54x microprocessor provides a number of ways to specify the location of data to be used in calculations. Immediate addressing, direct addressing, and indirect addressing are the three main types. Knowing the basic addressing modes of a microprocessor is important because they map directly into assembly language syntax and because the need to use a particular addressing mode often dictates which instruction one picks for a given task.

Microprocessors provide a number of ways to specify the location of data to be used in calculations. For example, one of thedata values to be used in an add instruction may be encoded as part of that instruction's opcode , the raw machine language produced by the assembler as it parses yourassembly language program. This is known as immediate addressing . Alternatively, perhaps the opcode will instead contain a memory address which holds the data( direct addressing ). More commonly, the instruction will specify that an auxiliary register holds the memory addresswhich in turn holds the data ( indirect addressing ). The processor knows which addressing mode is being used byexamining special bit fields in the instruction opcode.

Knowing the basic addressing modes of your microprocessor is important because they map directly into assembly languagesyntax. Many annoying and sometimes hard-to-find bugs are caused by inadvertently using the wrong addressing mode in aninstruction. Also, in any assembly language, the need to use a particular addressing mode often dictates which instruction onepicks for a given task.

Chapter five, Data Addressing , in the CPU and Peripherals reference contains extended descriptions of most of the addressing modes described below.

Accumulators: src, dst

Whenever the abbreviations src or dst are used in the assembly language syntax description for an instruction, it means that only theaccumulators A and B may be used for that particular operand. These are seen everywhere, but twoclassic examples are ld , which always loads data into an accumulator from somewhere else, and sth/stl , which always store data from an accumulator to somewhere else.


ld *AR5,A ; sets A = (contents of memory location pointed to by AR5) sth B,*AR7+ ; sets (contents of memory location pointed to be AR7) = B, ; and then increments AR7 by one

Memory-mapped registers: mmr, mmrx, mmry

Many of the TMS320C54x registers are memory-mapped, meaning that they occupy real addresses at the low end of data memoryspace. The most commonly used of these are the auxiliary registers AR0 through AR7 . Whenever the abbreviation MMR is used in the assembly language syntax description for an instruction, it means thatany memory-mapped register may be used for that particular operand. Only eight instructions use memory-mapped registeraddressing: ldm , mvdm , mvmd , mvmm , popm , pshm , stlm , and stm . With mvmm , since the instruction accepts two memory-mapped register operands, MMRx and MMRy , only AR0 - AR7 and SP may be used.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
