8086 has four multipurpose registers. 1. AX (Accumulator Register) 2. BX (Base Register) 3. CX (Count Register) 4. DX (Data Register) By Aneeta Arshad

How does an 8088 microprocessor generate physical address?

8086 has memory divided into segments.Each segment has its particular register like ES, DS, SS, CD (extra segment, data segment, stack segment and code segment).These registers hold the base address BA.Now, there two base registers(BX and BP) and two index registers(SI and DI) in 8086. These registers hols the effective address EA.Now Physical address PA is sum of EA and BA.That is,PA = BA+EA

Why are programme counter and stack pointer register 16 bit registers?

The program counter (PC) and stack pointer (SP) registers are 16-bit registers in the 8085 and in the 8086/8088 because that is how Intel designed the processors.

How do you program 8086?

There are many different instructions and registers in the 8086/8088. The question is too broad. Please ask a more specific question. Alternatively, you can consult a good book, such as "The 8086/8088 Primer", Second Edition, Stephan P. Morse, Hayden Book Company, or any of a wide variety of other books.
