This chapter applies the arithmetic, logical, and shift operations discussed in the previous chapter to extended-precision operands; that is, operands that are larger than 16 bits. Furthermore, signed number representation and its effect on shift and comparison operations are covered.
After reading this chapter, you will be able to:
Translate C language statements that perform extended-precision addition, subtraction, bitwise logical, and shift operations into PIC24 instruction sequences.
Compare and contrast signed magnitude, one’s complement, and two’s complement representations ...
