Let x = x + y (addition)
Let x = x - y (subtraction)

adds or subtracts 16-bit values to produce a 16-bit result, permitting overflow.

PBASIC allows you to add or subtract any two variables--bits, bytes, words, or a mixture--to get a 16-bit result. If a sum is larger than 16 bits, the highest-order bits are lost. If a difference is negative, it is a two's complement number.

The PIC's native instruction set includes 8-bit addition with a carry bit that is set when a sum exceeds 0FFh. This routine for 16-bit addition adds the LSBs first. If a carry occurs, it increments the MSB of the sum, then adds the MSBs.

While it is possible to code a separate subtraction routine in much the same way, it turns out to be easier to convert the number to be subtracted into a negative number instead. This is known as taking the two's complement of a number, and it just a matter of inverting the bits and adding 1. Two's complement numbers occur naturally in the kind of integer math that the PIC performs. Try subtracting 50 from 30 using the native PIC instruction sub. You'll get 236. Of course the answer should be -20. OK, take the two's complement of 20 using the Parallax instruction neg. You'll get 236.

So adding the two's complement of a number is the same as subtracting that number. This technique is used in other instructions throughout this book (e.g., Pause and Sleep) when it is more convenient to increment a negative number up to zero than to decrement a positive number down to zero. The reason is that the instructions inc and dec affect the zero bit, but not the carry bit. When a number is incremented, a carry occurs at the same time the number rolls over to zero. So the zero bit can be used to dete ct a carry when incrementing. This doesn't work when decrementing. The number hits zero one decrement before a carry would occur.

Demonstrating ADD16 and SUB16.

To see these routines in operation, either run the program with the PSIM simulator, or connect the circuit below to an erasable PIC or PIC emulator, such as the Parallax downloader. Assemble and run ADD_SUB.SRC. When you apply power to the PIC, the LEDs will light up in the binary pattern of the answer to the math problem C836h - 2575h, which is A2C1h. That works out to the following binary pattern on the LEDs:

1010 0010 1100 0001

Try adding and subtracting various combinations of n1 and n2 to see different results.
