24 Trillek TR3200 cpu module

This chapter documents the Backend for the TR3200 cpu.


24.1 Legal

This module is written in 2014 by Luis Panadero Guardeño and is covered by the vasm copyright without modifications.


24.2 General

This backend accepts TR3200 instructions as described in the TR3200 specification

The target address type is 32 bits.

Default alignment for sections is 4 bytes. Instructions alignment is 4 bytes. Data is aligned to its natural alignment by default, i.e. 2 byte wide data alignment is 2 bytes and 4 byte wide data alignment is 4 byte.

The backend uses TR3200 syntax! This means the left operands are always the destination and the right operand is the source (except for single operand instructions). Register names have to be prefixed by a ’%’ (%bp, %r0, etc.) This means that it should accept WaveAsm assembly files if oldstyle syntax module is being used. The instructions are lowercase, ‘-dotdir’ option is being used and directives are not in the first column.

24.6 Example

It follows a little example to illustrate TR3200 assembly using the oldstyle syntax module (option ‘-dotdir’ required):
