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
