Intel’s is a general purpose Keyboard Display controller that simultaneously drives the display of a system and interfaces a Keyboard with the CPU. The Keyboard Display interface scans the Keyboard to identify if any key has been In the Polled mode, the CPU periodically reads an internal flag of to . KEYBOARD/DISPLAY CONTROLLER – INTEL Features of The important features of are, Simultaneous keyboard and display operations.

These are the Return Lines which are connected to one terminal of keys, while the other terminal of the keys is connected to the decoded scan lines.

Intel 8279

It is enabled only when D is low. Auth with social network: These lines can be programmed as encoded or decoded, using the mode contfoller register. Chip select that enables programming, reading the keyboard, etc. Interface of 2 Keyboard type is programmed next. The display is controlled from an internal 16×8 RAM that stores the coded display information. Selects the number of display positions, type of key scan Z selects auto-increment so subsequent writes go to subsequent display positions.

In the keyboard mode, this line is used as a control input and stored in FIFO on a key closure. The output becomes a logic 0 when the control word is written and remains there until N plus the number of programmed counts.


These are the scan lines used to scan the keyboard matrix and display the digits. Share buttons are a little bit lower. Used internally for timing. The scans RL pins synchronously with the scan.

Interrupt request, becomes 1 when a key is pressed, data is available. Its data buffer interfaces the external bus of the system with the internal bus of the microprocessor. The keys are automatically debounced. Interrupts the micro at interrupt vector 8 for a clock tick. Six Digit Display Interface of Features of The important features of are, Simultaneous keyboard and display operations. Keyboard has a built-in FIFO 8 character buffer. Used internally for timing.

Generates a continuous square-wave with G set to 1. These are the output ports for two 16×4 or one 16×8 internal display refresh registers.

Pins SL2-SL0 sequentially scan each column through a counting operation. The keyboard consists of maximum 64 keys, which are interfaced with the CPU by using the key-codes.

The address inputs djsplay one of the four internal registers with the as follows: The line is pulled down with a key closure. Scan line outputs scan both the keyboard and displays.

In the scanned sensor matrix mode, this unit acts as sensor RAM where its each row is loaded with the status of their corresponding row of sensors into the matrix.


About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. Return lines are inputs used to sense key depression in the keyboard matrix. Used contropler controlling real-time events such as real-time clock, events counter, and motor speed and direction control.

In the decoded scan modethe counter internally decodes the least significant 2 bits and provides cotroller decoded 1 out of 4 scan on SL 0 -SL 3. The display can be blanked keyvoard BD low line. In the 2-key lockout mode, if two keys are pressed simultaneously, only the first key is recognized. Usually decoded at port address 40HH and has following functions: The display section consists of 16 x 8 display RAM.

Strobed keyboard, encoded display scan. Encoded keyboard with 2-key lockout. Sl outputs are active-high, follow binary bit pattern or Scans and encodes up to a key keyboard.

SL outputs keyboad active-low only one low at any time. The first 3 bits of sent to control port selects one of 8 control words. Keyboard Interface of MMM field: Registration Forgot your password?

Z selects auto-increment for the address. Selects type of write and the address of the write. Chip select that enables programming, reading the keyboard, etc.
