  9. 9. Central Hardware - A Microprocessor A microprocessor -- also known as a CPU or central processing unit -- is a complete computation engine that is fabricated on a single chip. A microprocessor incorporates the functions of a computer's central processing unit (CPU) on a single integrated circuit (IC) or at most a few integrated circuits Three basic characteristics differentiate microprocessors: •Instruction set: The set of instructions that the microprocessor can execute. • bandwidth : The number of bits processed in a single instruction. • clock speed : Given in megahertz (MHz), the clock speed determines how many instructions per second the processor can execute.
  10. 10. What’s difference between processors ?
  11. 11. What’s difference between INTEL processors ? Development of Intel processor (i) 8088 – – – Has 16-bit registers and 8-bit data bus 20 bit address bus - address up to 1 MB of internal memory Although registers can store up to 16-bits at a time but the data bus is only able to transfer 8 bit data at one time (ii) 8086 – Is similar to 8088 but has a 16-bit data bus and runs faster. – 20 bit address bus - address up to 1 MB of internal memory
  12. 12. (iii) 80286 – Runs faster than 8086 and 8088 – Can address up to 16 MB of internal memory ( 24 bit address) – multitasking => more than 1 task can be ran simultaneously (iv) 80386 – has 32-bit registers and 32-bit data bus – can address up to 4 billion bytes. of memory (4 GB) – support “virtual mode”, whereby it can swap portions of memory onto disk: in this way, programs running concurrently have space to operate. (v) 80486 – has 32-bit registers and 32-bit data bus – the presence of CACHE
  13. 13. (vi) Pentium – – – – has 32-bit registers, 64-bit data bus has separate caches for data and instruction the processor can decode and execute more than one instruction in one clock cycle (pipeline) (vii) Pentium II & III – has different paths to the cache and main memory
  14. 14. 8086 Architecture
  15. 15. 8086 Registers
  16. 16. 8086 Architecture Processor (CPU) is partitioned into two logical units: 1) An Execution Unit (EU) 2) A Bus Interface Unit (BIU) EU – EU is responsible for program execution – Contains of an Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU), a Control Unit (CU) and a number of registers BIU – Delivers data and instructions to the EU. – manage the bus control unit, segment registers and instruction queue. – The BIU controls the buses that transfer the data to the EU, to memory and to external input/output devices, whereas the segment registers control memory addressing.
  17. 17. 8086 Architecture EU and BIU work in parallel, with the BIU keeping one step ahead. The EU will notify the BIU when it needs to data in memory or an I/O device or obtain instruction from the BIU instruction queue. When EU executes an instruction, BIU will fetch the next instruction from the memory and insert it into to instruction queue.

  19. 19. Addressing Data in Memory • • • Intel Personal Computer (PC) addresses its memory according to bytes. (Every byte has a unique address beginning with 0) Depending on the model of a PC, CPU can access 1 or more bytes at a time Processor (CPU) keeps data in memory in reverse byte sequence (reverse-byte sequence: low order byte in the low memory address and high-order byte in the high memory address)
  20. 20. Example : consider value 052916 (0529H) 2 bytes  05 and 29 register 05 29 29 05 memory Address 04A2616 (low-order/least significant byte) Address 04A2716 (high-order/most significant byte) • When the processor takes data (a word or 2 bytes), it will re-reverse the byte to its actual order 052916
  21. 21. Segment And Addressing • Segments are special areas in the memory that is defined in a program, containing the code, data, and stack. • The segment position in the memory is not fixed and can not be determined by the programmer • 3 main segments for the programming process: (i) Code Segment (CS) • Contains the machine instructions that are to execute. • Typically, the first executable instruction is at the start of this segment, and the operating system links to that location to begin program execution. • CS register will hold the beginning address of this segment
  22. 22. (ii) Data Segment (DS) • Contains program’s defined data, constants and working areas. • DS register is used to store the starting address of the DS (iii) Stack Segment (SS) • Contains any data or address that the program needs to save temporarily or for used by your own “called” subroutines. • SS register is used to hold the starting address of this segment
  23. 23. Stack segment Contains the beginning address of each segment SS Register Address DS Register Address CS Register Address Data segment Segment register (in CPU) Code segment memory (MM)
  24. 24. Stack segment 035F0 Data segment 02ED0 Code segment 01300 Contains the beginning address of each segment SS Register 035F DS Register 02ED CS Register 0130 Segment register (in CPU) memory (MM)
  25. 25. Segment Offsets • Within a program, all memory locations within a segment are relative to the segment’s starting address. • The distance in bytes from the segment address to another location within the segment is expressed as an offset (or displacement). • Thus the first byte of the code segment is at offset 00, the second byte is at offset 01 and so forth. • To reference any memory location in a segment (the actual address), the processor combines the segment address in a segment register with the offset value of that location.  actual address = segment address + offset
  26. 26. Eg: A starting address of data segment is 038E0, so the value in DS register is 038E. An instruction references a location with an offset of 0032H bytes from the start of the data segment. the actual address = DS segment address (0) + offset = 038E(0) + 0032H = 03912H Ex. IF CS = 04F0 find physical address of data (a) at an offset 3BE0 (b) F3C8 in the code segment
  27. 27. Registers • Registers are used to control instructions being executed, to handle addressing of memory, and to provide arithmetic capability • Registers of Intel Processors can be categorized into: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Segment register Pointer register General purpose register Index register Flag register
  28. 28. i) Segment register There are 6 segment registers : (a) CS register • Contains the starting address of program’s code segment. • The content of the CS register is added with the content in the Instruction Pointer (IP) register to obtain the address of the instruction that is to be fetched for execution. (Note: common name for IP is PC (Program Counter)) (b) DS register • Contains the starting address of a program’s data segment. • The address in DS register will be added with the value in the address field (in instruction format) to obtain the real address of the data in data segment.
  29. 29. (c) SS Register • • Contains the starting address of the stack segment. The content in this register will be added with the content in the Stack Pointer (SP) register to obtain the required word. (d) ES (Extra Segment) Register • • Used by some string (character data) operations to handle memory addressing ES register is associated with the Data Index (DI) register. (e) FS and GS Registers • Additional extra segment registers introduced in 80386 for handling storage requirement.
  30. 30. (ii) Pointer Registers • There are 3 pointer registers in an Intel PC : (a) Instruction Pointer register • The 16-bit IP register contains the offset address or displacement for the next instruction that will be executed by the CPU • The value in the IP register will be added into the value in the CS register to obtain the real address of an instruction
  31. 31. Example : The content in CS register = The content in IP register = next instruction address: 39B40H 514H 39B40H + 514H . 3A054H • Intel 80386 introduced 32-bit IP, known as EIP (Extended IP)
  32. 32. (b) Stack Pointer Register (Stack Pointer (SP)) • The 16-bit SP register stores the displacement value that will be combined with the value in the SS register to obtain the required word in the stack • Intel 80386 introduced 32-bit SP, known as ESP (Extended SP) Example: Value in register SS = 4BB30H Value in register SP = + 412H 4BF42H (c) Base Pointer Register • The 16-bit BP register facilitates referencing parameters, which are data and addresses that a program passes via a stack • The processor combines the address in SS with the offset in BP
  33. 33. (iii) General Purpose Registers There are 4 general-purpose registers, AX, BX, CX, DX: (a) AX register • Acts as the accumulator and is used in operations that involve input/output and arithmetic • The diagram below shows the AX register with the number of bits. 32 bits 8 bit 8 bit AL AH AX EAX EAX AX AH AL : 32 bit : 16 bit (rightmost 16-bit portion of EAX) : 8 bit => leftmost 8 bits of AX (high portion) : 8 bit => rightmost 8 bit of AX (low portion)
  34. 34. (b) BX Register o Known as the base register since it is the only this general purpose register that can be used as an index to extend addressing. o This register also can be used for computations o BX can also be combined with DI and SI register as a base registers for special addressing like AX, BX is also consists of EBX, BH and BL 32 bits 8 bit 8 bit BH BL BX EBX
  35. 35. (c) CX Register • known as count register • may contain a value to control the number of times a loops is repeated or a value to shift bits left or right • CX can also be used for many computations • Number of bits and fractions of the register is like below : 32 bits 8 bit 8 bit CH CL CX ECX
  36. 36. (d) DX Register • Known as data register • Some I/O operations require its use • Multiply and divide operations that involve large values assume the use of DX and AX together as a pair to hold the data or result of operation. • Number of bits and the fractions of the register is as below : 32 bits 8 bit 8 bit DH DL DX EDX
  37. 37. (iv) Index Register There are 2 index registers, SI and DI (a) SI Register o Needed in operations that involve string (character) and is always usually associated with the DS register o SI : 16 bit o ESI : 32 bit (80286 and above) (b) DI Register o Also used in operations that involve string (character) and it is associated with the ES register o DI : 16 bit o EDI : 32 bit (80386 and above)
  38. 38. (v) FLAG Register o Flags register contains bits that show the status of some activities o Instructions that involve comparison and arithmetic will change the flag status where some instruction will refer to the value of a specific bit in the flag for next subsequent action - 9 of its 16 bits indicate the current status of the computer and the results of processing - the above diagram shows the stated 9 bits O 15 14 13 12 11 D 10 I 9 T 8 S 7 Z 6 A 5 4 3 P 2 1 C 0
  39. 39. O 15 14 13 12 11 D 10 I 9 T 8 S 7 Z 6 A 5 4 3 P 2 1 C 0 OF (overflow): indicate overflow of a high-order (leftmost) bit following arithmetic DF (direction): Determines left or right direction for moving or comparing string (character) data IF (interrupt): indicates that all external interrupts such as keyboard entry are to be processed or ignored TF (trap): permits operation of the processor in single-step mode. Usually used in “debugging” process SF (sign): contains the resulting sign of an arithmetic operation (0 = +ve, 1 = -ve) ZF (zero): indicates the result of an arithmetic or comparison operation (0 = non zero; 1 = zero result) AF (auxillary carry): contains a carry out of bit 3 into bit 4 in an arithmetic operation, for specialized arithmetic PF (parity): indicates the number of 1-bits that result from an operation. An even number of bits causes so-called even parity and an odd number causes odd parity CF (parity): contains carries from a high-order (leftmost) bit following an arithmetic operation; also, contains the content of the last bit of a shift or rotate operation.
  40. 40. Introduction to assembly language programming Levels of Programming Languages 1) Machine Language – Consists of individual instructions that will be executed by the CPU one at a time 2) Assembly Language (Low Level Language) – Designed for a specific family of processors (different processor groups/family has different Assembly Language) – Consists of symbolic instructions directly related to machine language instructions one-for-one and are assembled into machine language. 3) High Level Languages – e.g. : C, C++ and Vbasic – Designed to eliminate the technicalities of a particular computer. – Statements compiled in a high level language typically generate many lowlevel instructions.
  41. 41. Reasons for using Assembly Language 1. A program written in Assembly Language requires considerably less memory and execution time than one written in a high –level language. 2. Assembly Language gives a programmer the ability to perform highly technical tasks that would be difficult, if not impossible in a high-level language. 3. Although most software specialists develop new applications in high-level languages, which are easier to write and maintain, a common practice is to recode in assembly language those sections that are time-critical. 4. Resident programs (that reside in memory while other program execute) and interrupt service routines (that handle input and output) are almost always develop in Assembly Language.
  42. 42. Assembly Language • Program implemented directly on the physical CPU • Is not portable between various families of processors • It gives programmers the insight required to write effective code in high-level Basic • Every computer - has at its heart exactly two things: a CPU and some memory • Computer program is nothing more than a collection of binary codes in memory. • Different numbers tell the CPU to do different things. • The CPU reads the op-code one at a time, decodes them, and does what the numbers say. 64 opcode 64 - means add 1 to AX. 8E opcode 8E- swap numbers stored in AX with BX. • 184, 0, 184, 142, 216, 198, 6, 158, 15, 36, 205, 32. ( Display $ )
  43. 43. Assembly Language • Op codes are not understood by human. • Programs could be written using words instead of numbers is assembly language • A special program called an assembler would then take the programmer's words and convert them to numbers that the computer could understand. The program above, written in assembly language, looks like this: MOV AX, 47104 MOV DS, AX MOV [3998], 36 INT 32 • Assembler converts each line of code into CPU-level instruction • INT instruction transfers processor control to the device drivers or operating system.
  44. 44. Assembly Language • Registers used to store numbers • DS happens to be a segment register and is used to pick which area of memory the CPU can write to • In our program, we put the number 47104 into DS, which tells the CPU to access the memory on the video card. • Put the number 36 ($) into location 3998 of the video card's memory • 3998 is the memory location of the bottom right hand corner of the screen, a dollar sign shows up on the screen a few microseconds later. • An interrupt is used to stop one program and execute another in its place. • In our case, we want interrupt 32, which ends our program and goes back to MSDOS, or whatever other program was used to start our program
  45. 45. Assembly Language • Running the Program • Next, click on your start menu, and run the program called MS-DOS Prompt • Type DEBUG and press enter • You will see the Debug prompt, which is a simple dash. • We are now in a program called Debug. Debug is a powerful utility that lets you directly access the registers and memory of your computer for various purposes. • Debug's a command is for assemble. • You will see something like 1073:0100. • This is the memory location we are going to enter assembly language instructions at. • The first number is the segment, and the second number is the memory location within the segment (offset) • Debug only understands hexadecimal numbers, • Enter our program now. Type each of the instructions - when you finish entering the last instruction, press enter twice mov ax,B800 movds,ax mov byte[0F9E],24 int 20
  46. 46. Assembly Language • Once you have entered the program, you can go ahead and run it. • Simply type g for go and press enter when you are ready to start the program. • You should see a dollar sign in the lower right hand corner of your screen • These words are put out by Debug to let you know that the program ended normally • Go ahead and type q to get out of Debug • Now, type exit to get out of MS-DOS. You should now be back in Windows
  47. 47. Assembly Language Program Development Steps 1. Analyze the problem 2. Create source program ----------- Use Editor ---------- test.asm 3. Assemble the source file ----- Use Assembler ------ test.obj , test.lst 4. Link the object file ---- Use Linker ----- test.exe , test. Map 5. Run the program independently or use Debugger / Emulator
  48. 48. Assembly Language Program Development Tools • Editor • Assembler • Linker • Loader • Debugger • Emulator
  49. 49. Editor •Is a program that helps to create and modify contents of a file •We can write assembly language instructions or mnemonics and store them as a file with extension .ASM .data msg db .code mov mov mov mov int "Hello, World!", 0Dh,0Ah, 24h ax,@data ds,ax dx, offset msg ah, 09h 21h mov ah, 0 int 16h Hello.asm
  50. 50. The Assembler • Translates the mnemonics into binary machine code • WE will use TASM or MASM - Finds displacement (offset) of data and labels and puts this into symbol table - Inserts these offsets into the translated binary code - Pseudo Instructions are special commands to the assembler about the positioning of the program, the address the program should presumed to be assembled at, Command : TASM /l hello.asm
  51. 51. Hello.lst file
  52. 52. -- Produces binary codes for the combined module. -- Also produces a map file having addresses of all linked files -- Linker does not assign absolute address -- only relative address from 0000 hence the program is relocatable code
  53. 53. Debugger The Assembly Language Debugger is a tool for debugging executable programs at the assembly level. Debugger loads the object code into system memory (RAM) Execute and debug the program Features - Step into / Step over - to see register and memory contents - Breakpoints - Easy memory manipulation - Disassembler for intel x86 instructions - Easy register manipulation

  55. 55. Emulator • emulator is hardware or software or both that duplicates (or emulates) the functions of one computer system (the guest) in another computer system (the host) • emulated behavior closely resembles the behavior of the real system (the guest) • exact reproduction of behavior as against simulation • Used to test and debug hardware of an external system • Host is connected to guest by cable • Then the object code is downloaded into the guest’s memory for execution • All features of debugger are present in the emulator • The only difference is that emulator gets the status of all memory locations and registers from the external hardware. • This traced data can be analyzed to find errors
