The most significant two bits of the terminal count register specify the type of DMA operation for that channel. which causes data to be transferred from a peripheral to memory: —• 6U* I and (3) DMA verify. Thus. which causes data to be transferred from memory to a peripheral: (2) DMA write. Outputs the least significant eight bits of the memory address onto system address lines A0-A7. Each channel includes two sixteen-bit registers: (1) a DMA address register.the data bus (the 8212 places these address bits on lines A8-A15). The peripheral can use these acknowledge signals to enable an internal access of each byte of a data block in order to execute some verification procedure. When the specified number of data bytes have been transferred. provides a complete four-channel DMA controller for use in Intel® microcomputer systems. if N = the number of desired DMA cycles. The 8257 will retain control of the system bus and repeat the transfer sequence. When an 8257 channel is in the DMA verify mode. it will respond the same as described for transfer operations. a terminal count of 0 would cause the TC output to be active in the first DMA cycle for that channel. however.

AfSfT- RIAO' wmtc LOGIC The 8257 offers three different modes of operation: (1) DMA read. outputs the most significant eight bits of the memory address to the 8212 I/O port via. as long as a peripheral maintains its DMA request.g. except that no memory or I/O read/write CONTROL LOOC MOO* —. such as the accumulation of a CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Code) checkword. before a channel is enabled.8257/8257-5 FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION General The 8257 is a programmable. a block of DMA verify cycles might follow a block of DMA read cycles (memory to peripheral) to allow the peripheral to verify its newly acquired data. thus preventing the transfer of data The 8257.

Recall that the loworder 14-bits of the terminal count register should be loaded with the values (n-1). this AEN output should be used to disable the selection of an I/O device when the DMA address is on the address bus. HRQ will normally be applied to the HOLD input on the CPU. the selected channel will be automatically disabled at the end of that DMA cycle.

It may be further used to isolate the 8257 data bus from the System Data Bus to facilitate the transfer of the 8 most significant DMA address bits over the 8257 data I/O pins without subjecting the System Data Bus to any timing constraints for the transfer.8257/8257-5 (TC) Address Lines: These four address lines are three-state outputs which constitute bits 4 through 7 of the 16-bit memory address generated by the 8257 during all OMA cycles. 8257 Block Diagram Showing Control Logic and Mode Set Register 2-107 AFN-018400 .

The enable bit for that channel must be re-programmed to continue or begin another DMA operation. If a device cannot be accessed within a specific amount of time it returns a "not ready" indication to the 8257 that causes the 8257 to insert one or more wait states in its internal sequencing.

Auto Load Bit 7 The Auto Load mode permits Channel 2 to be used for repeat block or block chaining operations. a channel is disabled (i. leading edge of the f/SW or MEMW signal (which generally occurs late in the transfer sequence). The channel which had just been serviced will have the lowest priority. has no effect on Channel 2 when the Auto Load bit is set.

The UPDATE FLAG can be cleared by resetting the 8257. This permits repeat block operations to be set up with the programming of a single channel.I. DMA can be inhibited by a hardware gate on the HRQ line or by disabling channels with a mode word before reading the TC status. Repeat block operations can be used in applications such as CRT refreshing. Status Register The user is cautioned against reading the TC status register and using this information to reenable chan nels that have not completed operation. the update flag in the status register can be monitored by the CPU to determine when the re-initialization process has been completed so that the next block parameters can skipping a data block by overwriting a starting address or terminal count in the Channel 3 registers before those parameters are properly auto-loaded into Channel 2. by changing to the non-auto The TC status bits are set when the Terminal Count (TC) load mode (i.
