Absolute Immediate Addressing

An absolute immediate address is designated by immediate data. This addressing mode is absolute in the sense that it is not specified relative to the current instruction address.

For Branch and Branch Conditional instructions, an absolute immediate addressing mode is used if the Absolute Address bit (AA bit) is on.

The operand for the immediate data can be an absolute, relocatable, or external expression.
