Table 3: Example program layout in memorymemorylocationbyteThe table to the left shows how the binary executableis to be stored in the flash memory. Notice that it isusual to show memory locations with the lowestaddresses at the bottom of the table. The memorylocations available for the program start at f800. Theinformation is organized in 2 bytes words. The lowbyte is stored in a location of the lower address andhigh byte of the word goes into the location with thehigher address in the contiguous flash memory. This iscalled a little-endian format as shown in the table.(The big-endian format stores the high bytes in thelower addresses),. Program code segment growsupward. The stack pointer is set at top of the ram, thebytes pushed into the stack go downward. Vectors arestored in a specially reserved flash memory 4031F80A-.40F2 00F7 002240B2 5A80 01204031 0280 mov#0x280, sp

Table 5: Decimal/Binary/Hexadecimal Reference Tabledecimalbinary, b0x, hexadecimal, hThere are 3 popular ways of representing the numbers used inprogramming: our familiar decimal system, binary system (digits0 and1) and hexadecimal system (digits 0-9,a,b,c,d,e,f). Prefix0x or suffix h is used to indicate hexadecimal numbers, suffix b isused to indicate binary. To convert a number from binary tohexadecimal (see the table) you should group the binary digitsthem into 4-bit groups and assign a hexadecimal digit to eachgroup.When you prepare bit patterns to write into registers the binarynotation, for example 11110111b is much more descriptive thanthe hexadecimal one 0xF3.Executable program is always stored in the computer memory asbinary, to assemble the instruction is to convert them from themnemonics format into binary, to disassemble is the reverseprocess.

Examples of Dissasembling a Command (using first 3 directives of lab1 program):Instruction 1:It is standard procedure is to initialize the RAM for stack operation using the instruction :mov #0x280, spUse Table 1. To understand the binary format of this instruction shown below. This instructionmoves the hexadecimal number 280 (0x280) to register sp which is a second register in the cpumemory map (Fig.2.),· two-operand move opcode becomes 4 (0100b)· source register (S-reg): we are using here the immediate addressing which means thatthe number is stored directly in the command. It is pointed out by the number in theprogram counter (PC) so that field becomes 0, (0000b). For immediate addressingmode the source register is always PC.· for word bit B/W becomes 0 (this bit is 1 when the instruction deals with bytes of 8bitseach or is 0 if the instruction deals with words of 16bits each)· immediate mode As/Ad becomes 11/- (- means either 0 or 1), consult the table 2 ofaddressing modes· so the field Ad B/W As is 0011b or 0x3 (hexadecimal 3)· destination register (D-Reg) field of sp (stack pointer) is 1· 0280 will be the operand which follows the instructionMOV Move source to destinationMov.b #0x280, spwhich disassemble tobinary01000100S-reg0000Ad0B/W0As1 1D-Reg00014031 0280this hexadecimal number is the instruction in a format ready to send to the flushmemory of the microprocessor.Instruction 2The following instruction will stop the watchdog timer:mov.w # WDTPW WDTHOLD, & WDTCTLWDTPW and WDTHOLD are constants defined in the include file, the symbol indicates thatthey are added to become 0x5A80, When send to the register at the address WDTCTL which ishexadecimal 0120 it stops the watchdog timer.· two-operand move opcode, green columns, becomes 4 · Source in immediate addressing is 0x0· bit B/W becomes 0· immediate mode As/Ad becomes 11/· destination is an absolute address specified in the command, D-Reg field becomes 2.· 5A80 is the word to send to watchdog timer to stop it and 0120 is thewatchdog timer’s absolute address which is the operands which follows theinstruction –MOV Move source to destination0100S-regAdB/WAsD-Reg
