1 Intel ® 186 Processor The Intel® 186 processor was introduced in 1982 with a clock speed of 6 MHz. The processor is similar to an Intel® 8086 processor, which is the processor used in the original IBM PC. The Intel 186 processor integrates a Direct Memory Access (DMA) controller and interrupt controller. Integration is the addition of functionality onto an embedded processor that was provided in separate integrated circuits in previous processors. The enhanced Intel 186 processor used today in embedded applications runs at 25 MHz and can address up to 1 MB of memory.
Examples of I/O devices include Universal Serial Bus (USB) devices, keyboards, mice, touch screens, storage devices (such as Serial ATA drives), and the network. 1 Performance The performance of an embedded system can have a different meaning depending upon the particular application of the device. com 20 Chapter 2 characteristic other similar devices compete upon and customers consider a key comparison point. Examples of performance in embedded systems include: ● Response time ● Start-to-ﬁnish execution time ● Number of tasks completed per unit of time ● Power utilization In addition, many embedded systems have multiple performance needs.
The compiler can determine execution frequency by employing proﬁle-guided optimization, which is detailed later in Chapter 5. Inlining is an optimization that reduces function call and return overhead by replacing a call of a function with the instructions that make up the called function. 16: Basic block example assembly listing w ww. 18: Correlating disassembly 0x4(%esp),%eax 0x8(%esp),%eax is inlined, other optimizations can modify the assembly language to a larger degree resulting in difﬁcult to observe results.
