For this book, performance implies start-to-finish execution time unless otherwise stated. Embedded Intel® Architecture processors have evolved over 30 years offering increased performance through microarchitecture features and increased functionality through integration. Understanding assembly language is critical to performance tuning and debugging. A number of simple tips will help you analyze IA-32 architecture assembly language code. Open the case of an embedded system and one of the more prominent items you will typically see is a motherboard to which various integrated circuits are attached.

Reading and understanding x86 assembly language are difficult tasks. Writing x86 assembly language is even more difficult. Embedded software engineers are daunted by the sheer longevity of the instruction set and breadth that includes: ● 8-bit, 16-bit, 32-bit, and 64-bit general purpose register sets ● Variable length instructions ● Multiple instructions that perform the same action ● Aggressive compiler optimization ● New instructions and register sets ● x87 floating point Regardless, there are times when an embedded software engineer will need to look at a disassembly of an application binary or the source code compiled into assembly to perform debugging or performance tuning.

Micro-op fusion is the binding of two instructions together for execution in the pipeline that reduces the overhead. Extended stack pointer folding reduces the load on the execution units by handling stack adjustments separately. Power utilization has always been a concern in small embedded devices and is becoming an increasing constraint in high performance designs. ” w ww. 8 Dual-Core Intel Xeon® Processors LV and ULV and Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor 5100 Series The Dual-Core Intel Xeon® processors LV and ULV & Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5100 series were introduced in 2006 and are based upon the desktop/server processor known as Intel Core processor.
