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.

About project SlidePlayer Terms of Service. This can be obtained by dividing the input clock by an internal prescaler. SL outputs are active-high, follow binary bit pattern or depending on 8 or 16 digit display.

It is enabled only when D is low. These are the scan lines used to scan the keyboard matrix and display the digits. DD Function Encoded keyboard with 2-key lockout Decoded keyboard with 2-key lockout Encoded keyboard with N-key rollover Decoded keyboard with N-key rollover Encoded sensor matrix Xontroller sensor matrix Strobed keyboard, encoded display scan Strobed keyboard, decoded display scan Encoded: The keys are automatically debounced.

These are the output ports for two 16×4 or one 16×8 internal display refresh registers. The Keyboard can be interfaced either in the interrupt or the polled mode. Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback.

Till it is pulled low with a key closure, it is pulled up internally to keep it high. This unit contains registers to store the keyboard, display modes, and other operations as programmed by the CPU.


Programmable Keyboard/Display Interface –

Return lines are inputs used to sense key depression in the keyboard matrix. Chip select that enables programming, reading the keyboard, etc.

This mode is further classified into two output modes. If two bytes are programmed, then the first byte Diplay stops the count, and the second byte MSB starts the counter with the new count.

DD sets displays mode. The require an internal clock frequency of kHz. Keyboard Interface of The keyboard matrix can be any size from 2×2 to 8×8. Pinout Definition A0: In the Polled modethe CPU periodically reads an internal flag of to check whether any key is pressed or not with key pressure.

Consists of bi-directional pins that connect to data bus on micro. Generates a continuous square-wave with G set to 1.

The generate an interrupt signal when there is an entry in FIFO. SL outputs are active-low only one low at any time. The output becomes a logic 0 when the control word is written and remains there until N plus the number of programmed counts. There are 6 modes of operation for each counter: The status of the shift key and control key are also stored along with key code.

Selects the number of display positions, type of key scan Selects type of display read and address of the read. Z selects auto-increment for the address. These lines can be programmed as encoded or decoded, using the mode control register. Selects type of FIFO read and address of the read.


Interrupts the micro at interrupt vector 8 for a clock tick. It has two additional input: In the Interrupt modethe processor is requested service only if any key is pressed, otherwise the CPU will continue with its main task. The previous example illustrates an encoded keyboard, external decoder used to drive matrix. The FIFO can store eight key codes in the scan keyboard mode.

Interrupt request, becomes 1 when a key is pressed, data is available. Used for controlling real-time events such as real-time clock, events counter, and motor speed and direction control.

This unit kegboard scans the key closure row-wise, if found then the keyboard debounce unit debounces the key entry. Published by Hope Parrish Modified over 2 years ago. Auth with social network: 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.
