Problem – Write a program in 8086 microprocessor to multiply two 8-bit numbers, where numbers are stored from offset 500 and store the result into offset 600.

Examples – Inputs and output are given in Hexadecimal representation.

Algorithm –

  1. Load data from offset 500 to register AL (first number)
  2. Load data from offset 501 to register BL (second number)
  3. Multiply them (AX=AL*BL)
  4. Store the result (content of register AX) to offset 600
  5. Stop

Program –

400MOV SI, 500SI=500
403MOV DI, 600DI=600
406MOV AL, [SI]AL<-[SI]
409MOV BL, [SI]BL<-[SI]

Explanation –

  1. MOV SI, 500 set 500 to SI
  2. MOV DI, 600 set 600 to DI
  3. MOV AL, [SI] load contents of offset SI to register AL
  4. INC SI increase value of SI by 1
  5. MOV BL, [SI] load contents of offset SI to register BL
  6. MUL BL multiply contents of register AL and BL
  7. MOV [DI], AX store the result (contents of register AX) to offset DI
  8. HLT End.
