It operates almost any kind of raster-scan display, incl New programmable logic controller. Programmable controller networks in the US. Graded powder coatings applied by programmable controller. Single-chip programmable controller combines counting, sequencing, timing and monitoring.

Software engineering applied to programmable controller software design. It operates almost any kind of raster-scan display, including CRT screens and selfsca’nning types of display panels.

In addition to scan control and operating the character-generating ROM, the handles refresh, data transfer from main memory, limited graphics generation, cursor control, lightpen detection and other auxiliary functions. Format and control features are fully programmable.

Formats can be programmed from a single character up to 64 rows of 80 characters and up to 16 horizontal lines per row. Graphic symbols, cursor formats and video reversals can also be handled.

The buffers two rows of data on the basic chip and couples to an programmable DMA controller for direct memory access. The uses the DMA controller to load the buffer memory from main memory at high speed, so no separate refresh memory is necessary. The chip only requires commands from the CPU; the controller then operates asynchronously so that CPU and display operations can be timed independently.


Two byte refresh buffer memories are contained onchip. These are used alternately to load data from main memory and refresh the display. Loading operations can be programmed for times that will not interfere with main program execution. Loading can be done a byte at a time or in multibyte bursts. The CPU has complete access to main memory.

With conventional buffer memory, display data manipulations are limited to horizontal and vertical retrace intervals, but with the the CPU is free to modify display data at any time.

Other primary functions of the chip include generating timing and control addresses for standard ROMs, storing up to dot-matrix characters, generating limited graphics and video control signals, cursor control, lightpen detection and visual attributes. Basic programmable commands include: Parameter words can be sent after the reset command to change screen composition and cursor-position data is sent after the cursor demand. The lightpen command provides location data and the interrupt commands govern DMA.

Keyboard-display interface Intel have announced a new programmable single-chip k crtt y b o a r d – d i s play interface device, thefor use with general-purpose 8-bit microprocessors. It relieves a system CPU from monitoring and servicing the keyboard and updating the output display.


The chip can be considered in two sections: The input section of the chip can provide a scanned interface for various keypad formations up to a maximum of a 64 contact key matrix.

It can handle the key switches of a conventional keyboard, toggle switches or sensors. The may also be used with ferrite and Controllerr keyboards.

Key depressions can be either twokey or n-key rollover. All entries are debounced and stored in a FIFO. If more than eight characters are loaded into the FIFO, the ‘s overrun status flag is set.

The display section of the provides an alphanumeric scanned display interface for various popular displays controler LED and incandescent types.

Data is entered into fontroller internal 16 X 8 display memory which can, if desired, be organized as two 16 X 4 display memories. The CPU has full access to the memory and the memory address can be incremented automatically on memory read or write. Data can be entered by either left entry calculator style or right entry typewriter style. The may be used in either a keyboard or scanned display mode, or both simultaneously. Commmcations board Intel have added a communications board to the range of auxiliary cards for their SBC series of single-board computers.

They support full-duplex operation and incorporate parity, overrun and framing error detection.

They can interface to most communications protocols including IBM bi-sync, and will operate at up to baud in the asynchronous mode or 38 baud synchronously. Each channel contrloler a baud-rate generator based on the programmable timer. There are two of these devices onboard, each containing three bit programmable timers. The two spare timers are available to the user for implementing a real-time clock or for providing additional baud rates.

cotnroller The SBC can be used for full or half-duplex operation and the operating mode of each of the four channels, the data format and other functions are all individually programmable. Auxiliary functions include digital.

Eight interrupt lines are dedicated to the s, two to the spare timers on the board and the microprocessors.
