    code, or to program in assembler Assembler

    A program that translates from an assembly language to machine instructionsA C A bl i th t t f A Cross Assembler is a program that runs on one type of processor (e.g. x86) and produces machine instructions for another type (PIC)

    AssembleAssemble Translate to machine instructions (an assembly language is

    assembled, a HLL is compiled or interpreted) Assembly

    The process of translation

  • What is an Assembler?What is an Assembler At least: a translator from mnemonics to binary instructions

    ? At least: a translator from mnemonics to binary instructions

    ADLW hAA 00001111 10101010I i bl bl Invariably, an assembler: Has a set of directives that control assembler processing Calculates relative addresses from instruction labels

    Most assemblers are macro assemblers Perform macro substitution, expansion and calculation at assembly time

    M l ll bl l i t hi h l l f Macro language allows assembly language programming at a higher level of abstractionlocal i = 0 ; establish local index variable and initializewhile i < 8 ; do 8 times

    i += 1 ; increment loop counter

    endw ; break after eight loops

    Structured assembler see Peatman for example and source code Very simple form of compiler Allows control structures (e.g. if-then-else) that are active at run time

    With a single assembly language file that references only absolute addresses, workflow is straightforward

    Assembler directives are placed in the assembly language source file, and tell the assembler how to assemble the source.

    They are not active at run time
