|Instruction Name||Branch If Equal|
Branch On Zero
|CP1610 Clock Cycles||7 or 9|
|Opcode Range||$0201, $0221|
The Branch If Equal opcode (BEQ) is a two-decle opcode that is a part of the Branch family of opcodes. It is also known by the name Branch On Zero (BZE) because a test for equality is functionally equivalent to a test for a zero result. Essentially, to test equality, the CMP type of operations subtract operand #2 from operand #1 and if the result is zero, then the operands must be equal. This instruction causes the CP1610 to branch if the Zero Flag is set to the address specified by the following parameters.
Format - Decle #1 Format - Word #2 (All 16 bits are significant) 0000:0010:00d0:0100 aaaa:aaaa:aaaa:aaaa
d indicates the direction of the branch such that: d == 0 indicates to branch in the forward direction d == 1 indicates to branch in the reverse direction
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa indicates the amount of offset
