Problem – Write an assembly language program in 8085 microprocessor to exchange content of HL register pair with DE register pair using PUSH and POP instructions.
Assumption – Content is already present in HL and DE register.
- Initialize stack pointer (SP) by 3FFF.
- Push the content of H and L register into the stack. Decrements SP by 2.
- Push the content of D and E register into the stack. Decrements SP by 2.
- Pop the upper two bytes from top of stack and place it in HL register. Increment SP by 2.
- Pop the remaining two bytes from top of stack and place it in DE register. Increment SP by 2.
|2000||LXI SP 3FFF||SP <- 3FFF|
|2003||PUSH H||SP <- SP – 1, M[SP] <- H, SP <- SP – 1, M[SP] <- L|
|2004||PUSH D||SP <- SP – 1, M[SP] <- D, SP <- SP – 1, M[SP] <- E|
|2005||POP H||L <- M[SP], SP <- SP + 1, H <- M[SP], SP <- SP + 1|
|2006||POP D||E <- M[SP], SP <- SP + 1, D <- M[SP], SP <- SP + 1|
Explanation – Registers used H, L, D, E:
- LXI SP 3FFF: initialize SP by 3FFF.
- PUSH H: push the content of H and L register into the stack and decrements stack pointer by 2.
- PUSH D: push the content of D and E register into the stack and decrements stack pointer by 2.
- POP H: pop the upper two bytes from top of stack and place it in HL register pair and increment SP by 2.
- POP D: pop the upper two bytes from top of stack and place it in DE register pair and increment SP by 2.
- HLT: stops executing the program and halts any further execution.
