EEB531 Microprocessor Systems 3-1 Data-Addressing Modes

微處理機系統 • MOV (move data) instruction:

transfer bytes/words/doublewords of data
between registers, or
between register and memory
– MOVS: memory-to-memory transfer for strings

• opcode (operation code): MOV

• operands: AX and BX

3-1 Data-Addressing Modes
MOV (move data) instruction
8086 through 80286: register, immediate, direct, register indirect,
base-plus-index, register relative,
and base relative-plus-index
80386 and above: scaled-index

Fig. 3–4 The operation of the MOV EAX,
MOV dw reg/mem 3456H instruction. This instruction copies
the immediate data (13456H) into EAX.
d: direction (0: to reg; 1: from reg)
w: width (0: byte; 1:word)

immediate addressing

1. Register Addressing Examples

Table 3-1 Examples of the
register-addressed instructions.

Fig. 3–3 The effect of executing

the MOV BX, CX instruction at
the point just before the BX
register changes. Note that only
the rightmost 16 bits of register
EBX change.

3. Direct Data Addressing 4. Register Indirect Addressing
Two forms: direct addressing and displacement addressing Addressing data at any location through an offset address held in
BP, BX, DI, and SI.

MOV AL,[1234H] instruction
when DS = 1000H.

Figure 3-8 An example showing how base-plus-index
that are indirectly addressed through register BX addressing mode functions for MOV DX,[BX+DI] instruction

Notice that memory address 02010H is accessed

because DS = 0100H, BX = 100H, and DI = 0010H.

5. Base-Plus-Index Addressing Table 3-6 Examples of base-plus-index addressing

• 1 base register (BP or BX) + 1 index register (DI or SI)
– base register: hold beginning location of a memory array
– index register: hold relative position of an element in the array
combined with SS for EBP or DS for others
• 80386+: combination of any two 32-bit extended
registers except ESP
– eg. MOV DL, [EAX+EBX]
• Two examples
– Locating data with base-plus-index addressing
– Locating array data with base-plus-index addressing

6. Register Relative Addressing Addressing Array Data

with Register Relative
BX, DI, or SI addresses the DS segment and
BP addresses the SS segment
– MOV AX, [BX+1000H] Figure 3-11 Register relative addressing
used to address an element of ARRAY.
The displacement addresses the start of
ARRAY, and DI accesses an element.
