It consists of four main sections. Each counter has a program control word used to select the way the counter operates. Return lines are inputs used to sense key depression in the keyboard matrix. Selects the number of display positions, type of key scan These lines can be programmed as encoded or decoded, using the mode control register.

The keyboard consists of maximum 64 keys, which are interfaced with the CPU by using the key-codes. Display registers are two 4-bit registers A and B. Right or left entry 1 6-byte display RAM.

8279 – Programmable Keyboard

Interface of Code given in text for reading keyboard. Allows half-bytes to be blanked.

microrocessor DD field selects either: In decoded mode, uses only first four locations of display RAM. In sensor matrix mode, the memory is referred to as sensor RAM.


SL outputs are active-low only one mjcroprocessor at any time. Chip select that enables programming, reading the keyboard, etc.

It has two additional input: Types of Interrupts. Speed Control of DC Motor.

Microprocessor – Programmable Keyboard

Clears the display or FIFO. They hold the bit pattern of character to be displayed. In the keyboard mode, this line is used as a control input and stored in FIFO on a key closure. This unit controls the flow of data through the microprocessor. The scan lines are common for keyboard and display. Select your Language English.

Each row of the sensor RAM is loaded with the status of the corresponding row of sensor in the sensor matrix. If two bytes are programmed, then the first byte LSB stops the count, and microproceszor second byte MSB starts the counter with the new count.

Debugging a Program in It has an interrupt request line IRQ, for interrupt driven data transfer with processor.

Encoded mode and Decoded mode. The first 3 bits of sent to control port selects one of 8 control mmicroprocessor. Generates a basic timer interrupt that occurs at approximately Keyboard and debounce control is enabled only when scanned keyboard mode is selected. When A 0 is logic 0 data is transferred and when A 0 is logic 1 command word or status word is transferred.


If more than 8 characters are entered in the FIFO, then it means more than eight keys are pressed at a time.

Counter reloaded if G is pulsed again. Selects type of write and the address of the write.

Intel 8279

These four active low output lines can be used directly to interface 4 digit 7 segment display, 8 x 4 matrix keyboard, eliminating the external decoder. Auth with social network: Used internally for timing. The Microprocesor can store eight key codes in the scan keyboard mode.

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