8295a roughly understand the pins and connection but I cannot wrap my head around one: This input signal is used in conjunction with WR and RD signals to write commands into various command registers, as well as reading the various status registers of the chip.
This line can be tied directly to one of the address lines. Therefore, A 0 means the very first address line of the address bus.

But address lines are used to address primary memory, that is, RAM. So why is that bit called A 0 and how can it “[ So, it’s A 1 for x86 and A 0 for those other A-compatible processors only? Why A 1 for x86 dztasheet That means powers of 2, which I do not see the use for in this context. The A0 line is not used as a real port address line for datashedt the chip select anywaytherein lies the confusion.
It is used to differentiate between certain commands inside the 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. Various peripherals were typically not give a single address, but rather a range of addresses a block The first PIC peripheral interrupt controller, i.
The high order bits of the block, namely A5 through A7 in this case, would be fed into an address decoder and generate the chip select signal. This left the low order five bits to be used by the peripheral as it pleased. In this case, the A0 bit was used by the A. So the A0 line adtasheet to be wired to something else, was wired to A1 instead.
Since the decoded address bits for the first were 0x20 and 0x21, setting bit A0 for the would be done using port address 0x22 or 0x23 A1 bit set.
The datasheet contains a picture of the controller and its connection to the system bus: It has two dataseet in the datasheet.
The first one is as follows: A 0 This input signal is used in conjunction with WR and RD signals to write commands into various command registers, as well as reading the various status registers of the chip. And why 0, specifically, if the second description says this: What’s the purpose of that A 0 bit and its name here? Why are you studying the ?
It’s an obsolete part and not even carried by Digi-Key, Mouser etc. You’re learning pretty useless material. Your link for the datasheet is bad and I can’t find one elsewhere. Is this for school or are you trying to fix or build a retro computer? I love those old PCs and just want to write some low-level code. I just read a datasheet and write old software on my Intel Core i5. I have too much time, I guess. It has something to do with A0 normally being used for CS on bit controllers driving an 8-bit device like the On page 4 of the datasheet it says, 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.
Wait, but the ports of the master PIC, for example, are 0x20 and 0x So how does 0x22 fit in here? And what do you mean “The A0 line is not used as a real port address line [ If it is not, how can one assert it then? It is asserted as part of the address using port addresses 0x20 and 0x21 for it not asserted, and addresses 0x22 and 0x23 for it asserted.
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.

And what do you specifically mean “placeholder”? Maybe that would clear things up a bit for me. And if it is “asserted as part of the address,” then how is it “not used as a real port address line”? There is no port 0x Remember, I said the was allocated a block of 32 addresses from 0x20 through 0x3F.

It actually decoded only two, 0x20 and 0x Yes, A1 is a real address line, but it is not part of the decode used datasyeet assert the chip select line. Alright, alright, I’m getting closer.
Distinguishing seems only possible to me if different values can be assigned. 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?
