In many cases, depending on the result of previous operations, you execute the branch instructionconditionally. For example, to implement a loop, you decrement the loop counter by 1 each time you run a set ofinstructions and whenever the loop counter is not zero, you need to branch to the beginning of the code block to iteratethe loop operations. In the C6x CPU, this conditional branching is implemented using the conditional operations . Although B may be the instruction implemented using conditional operationsmost often, all instructions in C6x can be conditional.

Conditional instructions are represented in code by using square brackets, [ ] , surrounding the condition register name. For example, the following B instruction is executed only if B0 is nonzero:

1 [B0] B .L1 A0

To execute an instruction conditionally when the condition register is zero, we use ! in front of the register. Forexample, the B instruction is executed when B0 is zero.

1 [!B0] B .L1 A0

Not all registers can be used as the condition registers. In the C62x and C67x devices, the registers that can be tested in conditionaloperations are B0 , B1 , B2 , A1 , A2 .

(Simple loop): Write an assembly program computing the summation n 1 100 n by implementing a simple loop.

Logical operations and bit manipulation

The logical operations and bit manipulations are accomplished by the AND , OR , XOR , CLR , SET , SHL , and SHR instructions.

Other assembly instructions

Other useful instructions include IDLE and compare instructions such as CMPEQ etc.

C62x instruction set summary

The set of instructions that can be performed in each functional unit is as follows (See [link] , [link] , [link] and [link] ). Please refer to TMS320C62x/C67x CPU and Instruction Set Reference Guide for detailed description of each instruction.

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.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
