Problem – Write a program to convert ASCII to BCD 8-bit number where starting address is 2000 and the number is stored at 2050 memory address and store result into 3050 memory address.

Input  : location: 2050
         Data   : 37
Output : location: 3050    
         Data   : 07        

Algorithm –

  1. Move value at [2050] into AL
  2. Perform AND operation on AL with 0F
  3. Move content of accumulator AL into 3050
  4. Stop

Program –

Memory Mnemonics Operands Comment
2000 MOV AL, [2050] [AL] <- [2050]
2004 AND AL, 0F [AL] <- ([ AL] AND 0F )
2006 MOV [3050], AL [3050] <- [AL]
200A HLT Stop

Explanation – Registers AL is used for general purpose

  1. MOV is used to transfer the data
  2. AND is used for multiplication (logically)
  3. HLT is used to halt the program
