In this post, we will understand the difference between direct addressing mode and indirect addressing mode −
In this mode, the address field contains the effective address of the operand.
This addressing mode requires one memory reference only.
It is a quick addressing mode.
There is no further classification in this mode.
There are no further calculations required to perform the operation in this addressing mode.
In this mode, the address field contains reference of the effective address.
It requires two memory references.
It is slower in comparison to direct addressing mode
It can be further classified into two categories.
It requires further calculation to determine the effective address of the operand.
