SX Microcontroller Basic Division Math Methods

by Nikolai Golovchenko

Don't know how to explain its operation, but what it does is approximate calculation of 32768/x using linear interpolation between points where x=1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256.

The routine can be extended for other number of bits in x.

x               DS	1
yh              DS	1
yl              DS	1

	clr	x
;	mov	W, #129
;	mov	x, W
	call	reciprocal8
	inc	x
	jmp	again

; Approximate calculation of 32768/x
; Input: x
; Output: y = 256 * yh + yl ~= 32768/x
; To calculate reciprocal, linear interpolation
; is used between points, where x=1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128
; Size: 19 instructions
; Execution speed(worst case including return):
;  6+4*8-1+4+4+2=47
