8085 program to count number of elements which are less than 0A
  • Last Updated : 20 Jun, 2018

Problem – Write an assembly language program in 8085 microprocessor to count number of elements which are less than 0A in series of 10 numbers.

Example –

Assumption – Series of 10 numbers is stored from starting memory location 2050. Value of count is stored at memory location 3050

Algorithm –



  1. Initialize register H with 20 and register L with 4F so that indirect memory points to memory location 204F.
  2. Initialize register C with 00 and register D with 0A.
  3. Increment indirect memory by 01.
  4. Move the content of M in accumulator A.
  5. Compare the content of A with 0A by help of CPI instruction. This instruction will update flags of 8085.
  6. Check if carry flag is set, if true then increment content of C by 01.
  7. Decremented content of D by 01.
  8. Check if zero flag is reset, if true then jump to step 3.
  9. Move the content of C to A.
  10. Store the content of A to memory location 3050.

Program –

MEMORY ADDRESSMNEMONICSCOMMENT
2000LXI H 204FH <- 20, L <- 4F
2003MVI C, 00C <- 00
2005MVI D, 0AD <- 0A
2007INX HM <- M + 01
2008MOV A, MA <- M
2009CPI 0AA – 0A
200BJNC 200FJump if CY = 0
200EINR CC <- C + 01
200FDCR DD <- D – 01
2010JNZ 2007Jump if ZF = 0
2013MOV A, CA <- C
2014STA 3050M[3050] <- A
2017HLTEND

Explanation – Registers A, C, D, H, L are used for general purpose.

  1. LXI H 204F: assign 20 to register H and 4F to register L
  2. MVI C, 00: assign 00 to register C
  3. MVI D, 0A: assign 0A to register D
  4. INX H: increment indirect memory location by 01
  5. MOV A, M: moves the content of indirect memory location M to accumulator A
  6. CPI 0A: subtracts 0A from content of A and update the flags of 8085
  7. JNC 200F: jump to memory location 200F if CY = 0
  8. INR C: increment content of C by 01
  9. DCR D: decrement content of D by 01
  10. JNZ 2007: jump to memory location 2007 if ZF = 0
  11. MOV A, C: moves the content of C to A
  12. STA 3050: store the content of A in memory location 3050
  13. HLT: stops executing the program and halts any further execution
