An often-used hybrid solution was to use a video interface controller often the Motorola contgoller a basis and expand its capabilities with programmable logic or an ASIC. Retrieved 27 July The Cogs each have their own local memory, and share access to the 32k Hub memory.


Cobtroller Sargon chess game with graphics was an early apex of this era. Many early systems used some form of an early programmable logic array to create a video system; examples include the ZX Spectrum and ZX systems and Elektronika BK but there were many others.

The Propeller Spin code recognizes the character, activates the buzzer, waits vrt 0.

The lightpen command provides location data and the interrupt commands govern DMA. It acts as an 8MB, high reliability, low power, fast and completely silent floppy disk drive! You cannot make the cursor automatically blink, nor do you have any options in specifying the shape of the cursor symbol as was the case with the other CRT controllers.

Again if in doubt, remove the Propeller CPU and with a meter check the connections with the ribbon cable attached to the P38 socket. The two spare timers are available to the user for implementing a real-time clock or for providing additional baud rates. Also remember R68 is K not 1K. WD video crt raster timing wd Text: Nonetheless, the still provided several interesting func tions not available on any of the above devices.


Programmable CRT controller

The links below will contain the most recent schematic of this board. With its light pen input and multiple controller capability, the was ideal for advanced computer graphics applications. The chip only requires commands from the CPU; the controller then operates asynchronously so that CPU and display operations can be timed independently. Check they are working and cohtroller correctly by repeating the above tests before soldering them in. Here are the main features: With the Propeller’s multi-Cog architecture this is not as much of a problem as it would be for a single core processor.

Here is a layout of the comtroller. The CPU has full contoller to the memory and the memory address can be incremented automatically on memory read or write. This eliminated the need for an S wait state requirement. This is where things are different depending on the exact status bits you are currently using in your cntroller S system.

They can interface to most communications protocols including IBM bi-sync, and will operate at up to baud in the asynchronous mode or 38 baud synchronously. The above arrangement allows for a very convenient and flexible arrangement.

They support full-duplex operation and incorporate parity, overrun and framing error detection. I happen to like green text on a black background as can be seen below.

Because these methods are very flexible the video display generators could be very capable or extremely primitive, depending of the quality of the designbut also needed a lot of components. These are used alternately to load data from controlker memory and refresh the display.


Sometimes other supporting chips were necessary to build a complete system, such as RAM to hold pixel dataROM to hold character fontsor some discrete logic such as shift registers. Direct access with Turbo Pascal”. The 2N’s have their flat side facing down, the 2N has it facing up. Test that pin 12 of U12 and pin 8 of U23 is 3. Unfortunately I do not know enough Propeller assembly language to know how to display the keyboard scan code in the first pair of HEX displays.

It has been one of our most popular boards with now over of them out there. The input section of the chip can provide a scanned interface for various keypad formations up to a maximum of a 64 contact key matrix.

With one or more Cogs dedicated to ‘interrupt handling’, idling until the appropriate signal conditions are met, other Cogs can continue processing unaffected. All software written for my old video board should work unmodified. Propeller0 is in the center of the board.

I really recommend the PropPlug approach.

Controlleg use blue LED’s on all my boards for “board select”. The value placed will never be a mix of what both Cogs attempted to write. Both channels may operateWAIT.

Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Both channels may operateWAIT. Basic programmable commands include: Here is an early picture of a partially built prototype Console IO board. A program running in a Cog whether a user program or the Propeller Spin Interpreter has access to the Hub RAM through the use of various word or byte instructions.

On the other hand, the SYNC generation logic provided by the exceeds that which is provided by most of the other devices. Spacing the CRT from the Bezel.
