The Intel is a Programmable Interrupt Controller (PIC) designed for the Intel and Intel microprocessors. The initial part was , a later A suffix. The Intel A Programmable interrupt Controller handles up to eight vectored priority interrupts for The A is fully upward compatible with the Intel A datasheet, A pdf, A data sheet, datasheet, data sheet, pdf, Intel, PROGRAMMABLE INTERRUPT CONTROLLER.

Edge and level interrupt trigger modes are supported by the A. The was introduced as part of Intel’s MCS 85 family in Programming an in conjunction with DOS and Datasheeet Windows has introduced datashheet number of confusing issues for the sake of backwards compatibility, which extends as far back as the original PC introduced in Since most other operating systems allow for changes in device driver expectations, other modes of operation, such as Auto-EOI, may be used.

This may occur due to noise on the IRQ lines.

DOS device drivers are expected to send a non-specific EOI to the s when they finish servicing their device. 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.

This also allows a number of other optimizations in synchronization, such as critical sections, in a multiprocessor dataasheet system with s.


The first is an IRQ line being deasserted before it is acknowledged.

Up to eight slave s may be cascaded to a master to provide up to 64 IRQs. The A provides additional functionality compared to the in particular buffered mode and level-triggered mode and is upward compatible with it.

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. A similar case can occur when the unmask and the IRQ input deassertion are not properly synchronized. The labels on the pins on an are IR0 through IR7.

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. This prevents the use of any of the ‘s other EOI modes in DOS, and excludes the differentiation between device interrupts rerouted from the master to the slave Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations.

Interrupt request PC architecture. In edge triggered mode, the noise must maintain the line in the low state for ns. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Because of the reserved vectors for exceptions most other operating systems map at datashedt the master IRQs if used on a platform to another interrupt vector base offset.

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. The initial part wasa later A suffix version was upward compatible and usable with the or processor. On MCA systems, devices dtasheet level triggered interrupts and the interrupt controller is hardwired to always work in level triggered mode.

September Learn how and when to remove this template message. They are 8-bits wide, each bit corresponding dtaasheet an IRQ from the s. In level triggered mode, the noise may cause a high signal level on the systems INTR line.

This article intfl a list of referencesbut its sources remain unclear because it has insufficient inline citations. This second case will generate spurious IRQ15’s, but is very rare. Views Read Edit View history.

If the system sends an acknowledgment request, the has nothing to resolve and thus sends an IRQ7 in response. Since the ISA bus does not support level triggered interrupts, level triggered mode may not be used for interrupts connected to ISA devices. When the noise diminishes, a pull-up resistor returns the IRQ line to high, thus generating a false interrupt.
