To Execute any assembly language program (ALP) on Windows 10. We required five standard programs. These programs will help programmers in feeding , assembling , linking , loading and executing the user microprocessor or micro-controller program , so these programs are called Software Development Tools that is  TASM & MASM . In Windows these Software tools are Known as TASM & MASM for Windows OS.

What is a Microprocessor?

Microprocessor is nothing but a CPU or Processor on a Microchip or ICs.

What is Micro-controller?

Micro-controller is nothing but a on-chip Microcomputer.

What are Best Microprocessor and Micro-controller Assemblers for Windows 10?

Two types are given below:

  1.  TASM (Turbo Assembler)
  2. MASM (Microsoft Assembler)

Each TASM & MASM Contains Five Programs

Five programs are given below:

  1. Editor
  2. Assembler
  3. Linker
  4. Loader/Locator
  5. Debugger
1. Editor

Firstly Editor is a program, which will help the programmer to input ALP using Keyboard. All the character of ALP are stored in memory in the form of ASCII codes.This file of ALP generated is called as source file. The extension of source file should be .ASM i.e. Assembly Language Program. Editor will also help to save this source file into secondary memory like disc.

2. Assembler

First of all Assembler will read ALP from source file and it performs two steps:

  1. It will translate all the instructions from assembly language to hexadecimal number or binary number (machine Language)
  2. Assembler will allot effective address (EA) to each byte of Instruction code or Data.

Secondly Assembler will output two files:

  1. List File (xyz.lst)
  2. Object File (xyz.obj)
3. Linker

After that the linker is a Program, which will connect different small modules of programs to form one large program. This will remove memory fragment by readjusting the effective address allotted to different modules by the assembler.

4. Loader

Then the Loader is a program, which will physically load machine language program. It will allot base address to each memory segment, hence each byte of instruction code or data will get physical address.

5. Debugger

Finally Debugger is a program, which will help to execute the machine language program loaded into memory.
The program can be executed by three methods:
