Conditional JUMP instructions in 8085 Microprocessor

Microprocessor8085

In 8085 Instruction set, there are a set of jump instructions, which can transfer program control to a certain memory location. So after these branching mnemonics, we shall have to mention 16-bit target address of the location. These jump instructions can be divided into two categories– 

  • Unconditional jump instructions and

  • Conditional jump instructions

Here we shall discuss conditional jump instructions in details. Under conditional Jump instructions, we are having 8 different mnemonics. We know that there are 5 flag bits in 8085 Flag register. They are S, Z, P, Cy, AC. Out of them only on AC flag bit, there is no jump instruction. But for rest 4 flag bits, we are having 8 conditional jump instructions depending upon their 1 or 0 i.e. TRUE and FALSE values respectively. Here is the list of all conditional branching instructions in the following table –

16-bit address
Jumpconditionally
The program sequence is transferred to the memory address given in the operand based on the specified flag of the PSW.
