address mapping

address mapping  

Use of one of the addressing schemes to convert an address that is specified in an instruction into an absolute address. Virtual memory and cache memory use forms of address mapping for additional ...
address space

address space  

The total range of distinct locations that may be referred to with the absolute address. For most (i.e. binary) machines it is equal to 2n, where n is the number of bits in the absolute address. The ...
addressing schemes

addressing schemes  

The wide variety of schemes developed in order to provide compact or convenient address references in cases where the absolute address is too large to be accommodated in an instruction (see ...
augmented addressing

augmented addressing  

A method of expanding a short specified address by concatenating the specified address (as low-order address bits) with the contents of the augmented address register (as high-order bits) to produce ...
direct addressing

direct addressing  

The “normal” mode of addressing in which the address specified in the instruction is the absolute address to be used. See also addressing schemes.
effective address

effective address  

An absolute address that is either a direct address or has been computed by one of the addressing schemes such as augmenting, relative addressing, or indexing.
relative address

relative address  

In spreadsheets, a formula will often use the contents of another cell or cells. If these are always in the same position relative to where the formula appears, then relative addressing is used in ...
zero-address instruction

zero-address instruction  

An instruction that contains no address fields; operand sources and destination are both implicit. It may for example enable stack processing: a zero-address instruction implies that the absolute ...
