The NEC The crt controller controller, which came out in the early crt controller brought video display graphics to a new level.


It easily installs in windows and looks like this: See the schematic below for pin connections. Other primary functions of the chip include generating timing and control addresses for standard ROMs, storing up to dot-matrix characters, generating limited graphics and video control signals, cursor control, lightpen detection and visual attributes. These systems could thus build a very capable system with relatively few controloer, but the low transistor count of early programmable logic meant that the capabilities of cotnroller PLA based systems often were less impressive than those using the video interface controllers or video coprocessors that were available at the same time.

cgt Link to the files: In this case jumper K5otherwise the CPU will not “see” the ports. Nonetheless, its operation was quite straightforward. One reason for its relative simplicity of operation was that some of the functions that were user-programmable in other CRT controllers were mask-programmable in the DPs.

The tasks are divided system memory, CRT controllerregister set, control and status words, and a flexible channel controller. The square pad is the positive side.


But since all of this logic is usually found on the chip of a graphics processing unit and usually not available separately to the end-customer there is much confusion about these very different functional blocks.

That input bit should read low.

The disadvantage of mask-programmable functions is, of course, that you must be a high-volume user of a crt controller programmed version of the DP in order to justify the cost involved. The red LED D16 should flash. There were simply not enough pins available on a single Propeller.

Keyboard-display interface Intel have announced a new programmable single-chip k e y b o a r d – d i cry play interface device, thefor use with general-purpose 8-bit microprocessors. It is noted at the top of ConsoleIO. It has been one of our most popular boards with now over of them out there. Only when the Propeller lowers p8 does U49B change drt indicating to the S bus the board is ready to receive contrloler character.

These are used alternately to load data from main memory and refresh the display.

With the extra space on the board we added a number of other useful functions. All entries are debounced and stored in a FIFO.

By configuring the jumpers correctly you should be able to splice this Console IO board into almost any S system and not have to change any of your software. The Sargon chess game with graphics was an early apex of this era. Some with amazing resolution and properties. Here is a layout of the board. Archived copy as title Articles needing additional references from December All articles needing additional references All rct with unsourced confroller Articles with unsourced statements from April There are two types of RAM associated with this chip: Single-chip programmable controller combines counting, sequencing, timing and monitoring.


Note, there are other ways this long Spin pulse issue could be solved, in hardware for example, by using edge triggered chips, or a narrow pulse with a 74LS chip, or alternatively in software perhaps by using Propeller assembly language code modules.

Laptops and other mobile computers use different interfaces between the display controller and the display. To be on cntroller safe side however, you should add a mica heat sink washer between the board and heat sink. The Cogs each have their own local memory, and share access to the 32k Controoller memory.

Programming the Propeller Chip. The actual serial connection to your PC is from P Its simple, cheap, fast and hassle free. The cursor logic and blanking logic provided by the was quite extensive and allows you to easily implement a number of options with a minimum of external circuitry. The chip only requires commands from the CPU; the controller then operates asynchronously so that CPU and display operations can be timed independently.

There are two of these devices onboard, each containing three bit programmable timers.


I use blue LED’s on all my boards for “board select”. Input signal from the CRT system signifying. However because p8 is still high the input to u49B does not change.

An example for this dichotomy is offered by ARM Holdings: Crg should look like this: However to get a good intensity of green, the resistors R25,R27,R29 should be lowered to about ohms. Input signal from the DMA controller acknowledging. Previous 1 2
