8086 Addressing Modes

8086 Addressing Modes: We have seen how the 8086 fetches code bytes from memory by generating 20-bit physical address with the help of IP and CS. We have also seen how the 8086 accesses the stack using SS and SP. In this section we will see the different ways that an 8086 can access the …

Internal Architecture of 8086

Internal Architecture of 8086: Fig. 6.2 shows a block diagram of Internal Architecture of 8086. It is internally divided into two separate functional units. These are the Bus Interface Unit (BIU) and the Execution Unit (EU). These two functional units can work simultaneously to increase system speed and hence the throughput. Throughput is a measure …
