The operates in four different modes, depending upon the number of bytes transferred per cycle and number of ICs used:. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. For example, the P ISP integrated system peripheral controller has two DMA internal controllers programmed almost exactly like the In general, it loses any overall speed benefit associated with DMA, but it may be necessary if a peripheral requires to be accessed by DMA due to either demanding timing requirements or hardware interface inflexibility.

Like the firstit is augmented with four address-extension registers. This page was last edited on 21 Mayat In auto initialize mode the address and count values are restored upon reception of an end of process EOP datashet.

In an AT-class PC, all eight of the address augmentation registers are 8 bits wide, so that full bit addresses—the size eatasheet the address bus—can be specified. Retrieved from ” https: At the end of transfer an auto initialize will occur configured to do so.

For every transfer, the counting register is decremented and address is incremented or decremented depending on programming. Views Read Edit View history. This technique is called “bounce buffer”.

Each channel is capable of addressing a full 64k-byte section of memory and can 2837 up to 64k bytes with a single programming. DMA transfers on any channel still cannot cross a 64 KiB boundary.

A Programmable DMA Controller – Intel Chipset A Datasheet

dataheet In single mode only one byte is transferred per request. This means data can be transferred from one memory device to another memory device.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. When the counting register reaches zero, the terminal count TC signal is sent to the card.

This happens without any CPU intervention. The IBM PC and PC XT models machine types and have an CPU and an 8-bit system bus architecture; the latter interfaces directly to thebut the has a bit address bus, so four additional 4-bit address latches, one for each DMA channel, are added alongside the to augment the address counters.

It is used to repeat the last transfer. However, because these external latches are separate from the address counters, they are never automatically incremented or decremented during DMA operations, making it impossible to perform a DMA operation across a 64 KiB address boundary.

Additionally, memory-to-memory bit DMA would require use of channel 4, conflicting with its use to cascade the that handles the 8-bit DMA channels. Although this device may not appear as a discrete component in modern personal computer systems, it does appear within system controller chip sets.

Memory-to-memory transfer can be performed. The is capable of Infel transfers at rates of up to 1.

Intel 8237

For this mode of transfer, the width of the data bus is essentially immaterial to the as long as it is connected to a data bus at least 8 bits wide, for programming the registers. Auto-initialization may be programmed in this mode. The is a four-channel device that can be expanded to include any number of DMA channel inputs.


As a member of the Intel MCS device family, the is an 8-bit device with bit addressing. The channel 0 Current Address register is the source datasheft the data transfer and channel 1 and dxtasheet transfer terminates when Current Word Count register becomes 0.

Because the memory-to-memory DMA mode operates by transferring a byte from the source memory location to an internal temporary 8-bit register in the and then from the temporary register to the destination memory location, this mode could not be used for bit memory-to-memory DMA, as the temporary register is not large enough.

Consequently, a limitation on these machines is that the DMA controllers with their companion address “page” extension registers only can address 16 MiB of memory, according to the original design oriented around the CPU, which itself has this same addressing limitation. The transfer continues until end of process EOP either internal or external is activated which will trigger dayasheet count TC to the card. So that it can address bit words, it is connected to the address bus in such a way that it counts even addresses 0, 2, 4,
