Memory-to-memory transfer can be performed. So that it can address bit words, it is connected to the address bus in such a way that it counts even dztasheet 0, 2, 4, DMA transfers on any channel still cannot cross a 64 KiB boundary. This means data can be transferred from one memory device to another memory device.

This happens without any CPU intervention.

Intel 8237

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.

Additionally, memory-to-memory bit DMA would require use of channel 4, conflicting with its use to cascade the that handles the intsl DMA channels. When the counting register reaches zero, the terminal count TC signal is sent to the card.

However, because these external latches are datsheet 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. The operates in four different modes, depending upon the number of bytes transferred per cycle and number of ICs used:. It is used to repeat the last transfer.


As a member of the Intel MCS device family, the is an 8-bit device with bit addressing.

The is capable of DMA transfers at rates of up to 1. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from ” datzsheet For example, the P ISP integrated system peripheral controller has two DMA internal controllers programmed almost exactly like the Auto-initialization may be programmed in this mode.

Each channel is capable of addressing a full 64k-byte section intrl memory and can transfer up to 64k bytes with a single programming. Views Read Edit View history.

This page was last edited on 21 Mayat Although this device may not appear as a discrete component in modern personal computer systems, it does appear within system controller chip sets. In single mode only one byte is transferred per request.

At the end of transfer an auto initialize will occur configured to do so. This technique is called “bounce buffer”.

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 intrl, are added alongside the to augment the address dataaheet.

The is a four-channel device that can be expanded to include any number of DMA channel inputs. Like the firstit is augmented with four address-extension registers.

In an AT-class PC, all eight of the address augmentation registers are 8 bits wide, so datashewt full bit addresses—the size of the address bus—can be specified. 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.


The channel 0 Current Address register is the source for the data transfer and channel 1 and the transfer terminates when Current Word Count register becomes 0. For every transfer, the counting register is decremented and address is incremented or decremented depending on programming.

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.

For this mode of transfer, the width of the data bus is essentially inttel to the as long as it is connected to a data bus at least 8 bits wide, for programming the registers.

The transfer continues until end of process Inttel either internal or external is activated which will trigger terminal count TC to the card. In auto initialize mode the address and count values are restored upon reception of an end of process EOP signal.
