8-bit binary conversion to 3-digit fixed decimal in AVR Assembler



; Demonstrates floating point conversion
; in Assembler, (C)2003 www.avr-asm-tutorial.net
;
; The task: You read in an 8-bit result of an
;    analogue-digital-converter, number is in the
;    range from hex 00 to FF.
;    You need to convert this into a floating point
;    number in the range from 0.00 to 5.00 Volt
;
; The program scheme:
;    1. Multiplication by 502 (hex 01F6).
;       That step multiplies by 500, 256 and
;       divides by 255 in one step!
;    2. Round the result and cut the last byte
;       of the result.
;       This step divides by 256 by ignoring the
;       last byte of the result. Before doing
;       that, bit 7 is used to round the result.
;    3. Convert the resulting word to ASCII and set
;       the correct decimal sign
;       The resulting word in the range from 0 to
;       500 is displayed in ASCII-characters as
;       0.00 to 5.00.
;
; The registers used:
;    The routines use the registers R8..R1 without
;    saving these before. Also required is a multi-
;    purpose register called rmp, located in the
;    upper half of the registers. Please take care
;    that these registers don't conflict with the
;    register use in the rest of your program.
;
;    When entering the routine the 8-bit number is
;    expected in the register R1.
;    The multiplication uses R4:R3:R2 to hold
;    the multiplicator 502 (is shifted left
;    max. eight times during multiplication).
;    The result of the multiplication is calculated
;    in the registers R7:R6:R5.
;    The result of the so called division by 256
;    by just ignoring R5 in the result, is in
;    R7:R6. R7:R6 is rounded, depending on the
;    highest bit of R5, and the result is copied to
;    R2:R1.
;    Conversion to an ASCII-string uses the input
;    in R2:R1, the register pair R4:R3 as a divisor
;    for conversion, and places the ASCII result
;    string to R5:R6:R7:R8 (R6 is the decimal char).
;
; Other conventions:
;   The conversion uses subroutines and the stack.
;   The stack must work fine for the use of three
;   levels (six bytes SRAM).
;
; Conversion times:
;   The whole routine requires 228 clock cycles
;   maximum (converting $FF), and 79 clock cycles
;   minimum (converting $00). At 4 MHz the times
;   are 56.75 microseconds resp. 17.75 microseconds.
