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.

MMM sets keyboard mode. It has an internal pull up. 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 Decoded sensor matrix Strobed keyboard, encoded display scan Strobed keyboard, decoded display scan Encoded: In the Polled modethe CPU periodically reads an internal flag of to check whether any key is pressed or not with key pressure.

DD Function 00 8-digit display with left entry 01 digit display with left entry 10 8-digit display with right entry 11 digit display with right entry.

The address inputs select one of the four internal registers with the as follows: An events counter enabled with G. Decoded keyboard with N-key rollover. In the encoded mode, the counter provides the binary count that is to be dispoay decoded to provide the scan lines for the keyboard and display. Scans and encodes up to a key keyboard. Each counter has a program control word used to select the way the controllet operates.

Used internally for timing.

In encoded scan mode, the output of scan lines will be binary count, and so an external decoder should be used to convert the binary count to decoded output. The output lines can be used either as a single control,er of eight lines or as two groups of four lines, in conjunction with the scan lines for a multiplexed display.

SL outputs are active-high, follow binary bit pattern or depending on 8 or 16 digit display. Till it is pulled low with a key closure, it is pulled up internally to keep it high. The Shift input line status is stored along with every key code in FIFO in the scanned keyboard mode. Keyboard Interface of Causes DRAM memory system to be refreshed. DD sets displays mode. In decoded scan mode, the output of scan lines will be similar to a 2-to-4 decoder.

Used for controlling real-time events such as real-time clock, events counter, and motor speed and direction control. Encoded mode and Decoded mode.

Output that blanks the displays. Clears the IRQ signal to the microprocessor. Unlike the 82C55, the must be programmed first. The keyboard first scans the keyboard and identifies if any key has been pressed. Programs internal clk, sets scan and debounce times. Right or left entry 1 6-byte display RAM.

The line is pulled down with a key closure.

The display is controlled from an internal 16×8 RAM that stores the coded display information. The output becomes a logic 0 when the control word is written and remains there until N plus the number of programmed counts. Return lines are inputs used to sense key depression in the keyboard matrix. Encoded keyboard with 2-key lockout. SL outputs are active-low only one low at any time. Z selects auto-increment for the address. Max is 3 MHz. The previous example illustrates an encoded keyboard, external decoder used to drive matrix.


It has two modes i. The 74LS drives 0’s on one line at a time. Selects type of display read and address of the read.

dksplay This unit first scans the key closure row-wise, if found then the keyboard debounce unit debounces the key entry. Shift connects to Shift key on keyboard.

In the 2-key lockout mode, if two keys are pressed simultaneously, only the first key is recognized. Scan line outputs scan both the keyboard and displays. Usually decoded at port address 40HH and has following functions: SL outputs are active-low only one of the four outputs will be low at any time. Selects type of FIFO read and address of the read. DD field selects either: Decoded keyboard with 2-key lockout. The output lines are connected to the anodes through driver transistor in case of common cathode 7-segment LEDs.

Programmable Keyboard/Display Interface –

These lines are set to 0 when any key is pressed. If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. The first 3 bits of sent to control port selects one of 8 control words. Controls up to a digit numerical display. This unit contains registers to store the keyboard, display modes, and other operations as programmed by the CPU.

Selects type of write and the address of the write.
