8051 Code

8051 Code

8051 Code

Basically I need to implement the following code on an 8051 microcontroller:

If X < 10 THEN A<=B
         ELSE A<=C

Does anyone know how this might be achieved.  I know it has to so with conditional jump statements, but just not exactly how....

Any help would be greatly appreaciated


RE: 8051 Code

   For the < 10 I always check z and c flags after a cjne instruction.  For the <= stuff, is that a pascal format for A = C, or the 'C' format for "A = A shifted C times"?  If the real question is the < 10, let me know, I have many macros made for ==, <=, <, >, >=, ect.  Including seperate macros for those pesky long jumps!!! i.e. if x < 10 jump really far away...

RE: 8051 Code

what is it "X" ?

mov A,X
subb X, #10h
jnc st
mov A,B
sjmp end
st:mov A,C
end: bla bla

RE: 8051 Code

barbari - Are you sure the carry flag is cleared before the subb instruction?  I don't think mov a,x clears it.  Also you have #10h, it should be decimal....  (typo)
Here is what I do:

                cjne    a, #10, Lab_x  ; Modify carry flag
Lab_x:          jnc     NotLessThan
                ajmp    LessThan
NotLessThan:    mov     a, b
                sjmp    TheEnd
LessThan:       mov     a, c

Note -- be careful with the b, it's a real 8051 register..

Here is my macro, which gets rid of the bulky labels...
cjl             MACRO   X_, Y_, REL
                cjne    X_, Y_, $ + 3
                jnc     $ + 4
                ajmp    REL

                cjl     a, #10, LessThan
                mov     a, b
                sjmp    theend
LessThan:       mov     a, c
