    English is not my mother language and I can’t understand what are the goal. Is it a infinite loop?

    What do you mean output? Serial port, register, LCD, memory cell…?
    Is output already prepared (configured)?
    Should the code be architecture specific?

    Well, what about:

    JMP *

    Pick any assembler you want (maybe adjust the encoding of * to $), The programm will run infinit and outputs heat.
