Dma controllers - computer architecture, Computer Engineering

DMA controllers in computer system:

  •   DMA Controller
  •   Part of the I/O device interface
  •   DMA Channels
  •   Performs functions that in general would be performed by the processor
  •   Bus signals that control transfer
  •   Provides memory address
  •   Keeps track of number of transfers
  •   Under control of the processor

INTERFACE CIRCUITS

o   Provides a storage buffer for at least one word of data.

o   Circuitry required connecting an I/O device to a computer bus

o   Contains address-decoding circuitry

o   Contains status flag that can be accessed by the processor.

o   Generates the appropriate timing signals required by the bus control scheme.

o   Performs format conversions

o   Ports

o  Parallel port
