It’s an obsolete part and not even carried by Digi-Key, Mouser etc. The was introduced as part of Intel’s MCS 85 family in DOS device drivers are expected to send a non-specific EOI to the s when they finish servicing their device.

And if it is “asserted as part of the address,” then how is it “not used as a real port address line”? This second case will generate spurious IRQ15’s, but is very rare.

The second is the master ‘s IRQ2 is active high when the slave ‘s IRQ lines are inactive on the falling edge of an interrupt acknowledgment.

Since most other operating systems allow for changes in device driver expectations, other modes of operation, such as Auto-EOI, may be used. On page 4 of the datasheet it says, A0 This input 82559a is used in conjunction with WR and RD signals to write commands into the various command datashest, as well 859a reading the various status registers of the chip.


Is this for school or are you trying to fix or build a retro computer? This first case will generate spurious IRQ7’s. I love those old PCs and just want to write some low-level code. In this case, the A0 bit was used by the A.

In level triggered mode, the noise may cause a high signal level on the systems INTR line. Distinguishing seems only possible to me if different values can be assigned.

I roughly understand the pins and connection but I cannot wrap my head around one: Your link for the datasheet is bad and I can’t find one elsewhere. Alright, alright, I’m getting closer. So, it’s A 1 for x86 and A 0 for those other 8259z processors only?

So bit A1, with a placeholder value of 2 A0 is a value of 1 is added to the address 0x20 or 0x OK, but some commands require A0 A1 for x86 to be set. The combines multiple interrupt input sources into a single interrupt output to the host microprocessor, extending the interrupt levels available in a system beyond the one or two levels found on the processor chip.

A0 This input signal is used in conjunction with WR and RD signals to write commands into the various command registers, as well as reading the various status registers of the chip.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. The A0 line is not used as a real port address line for addressing the chip select anywaytherein lies the confusion. In edge triggered mode, the noise must maintain the line in the low state for ns. The datasheet contains a picture of the controller and its connection to the system bus: The labels on the pins on an are IR0 through IR7. Maybe that would dztasheet things up a bit for me. You’re learning pretty useless material.

However, while not anymore a separate chip, the A interface is still provided by the Platform Controller Hub or Southbridge chipset on modern x86 motherboards.

There is no port 0x But address lines are used to address primary memory, that is, RAM. Programming an in conjunction with DOS and Microsoft Windows has introduced a number of confusing issues for the sake of backwards compatibility, which extends as far back as the original PC introduced in The IRR maintains a mask of the current interrupts that are pending acknowledgement, the ISR maintains a mask of the interrupts that are pending an EOI, and the IMR maintains a mask of interrupts that should not be sent an acknowledgement.

When the noise diminishes, a pull-up resistor returns the IRQ line to high, thus generating a false interrupt. And 2 if “setting bit A0 for the would be done using port address 0x22 or 0x23” but these are inaccessible because not used by the A, how does the controller see A0 A1 is set at all?

It is used to differentiate between certain commands inside the The A provides additional functionality compared to the in particular buffered mode and level-triggered mode and is upward compatible with it.
