Encoded keyboard with N-key rollover. Scans and encodes up to a key keyboard. Keyboard Interface of The Shift input line status is stored along with progrrammable key code in FIFO in the scanned keyboard mode. Interface of 2 Keyboard type is programmed next. The address inputs select one of the four internal registers with the as follows: 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.

8279 – Programmable Keyboard

It has two modes i. This unit contains registers to store the keyboard, display modes, and displqy operations as programmed by the CPU. Selects type of display read and address of the read. Unlike the 82C55, the must be programmed first.

In the decoded scan modethe counter internally decodes the least significant 2 bits and provides a decoded 1 out of 4 scan on SL 0 -SL 3. If two bytes are programmed, then the first byte LSB stops the count, and the second byte MSB starts the counter with the keybaord count.

Clears the IRQ signal to the microprocessor. Used for controlling real-time events such as real-time clock, events counter, and motor speed and direction control.

Programmable Keyboard/Display Interface –

Decoded keyboard with N-key rollover. Interface of WWBB The display write inhibit control word inhibits writing to either the leftmost 4 bits of the display left W or rightmost 4 bits.

The keyboard consists of maximum 64 keys, which are interfaced with the CPU by using the key-codes. Pins SL2-SL0 sequentially scan each column through a counting operation. Generates a continuous square-wave with G set to 1.

Intel – Wikipedia

This mode deals with the input given by the keyboard and this mode is further classified into 3 modes. Return lines are inputs used to sense key depression in the keyboard matrix.

Counter disolay if G is pulsed again. Output that blanks the displays. Keyboard has a built-in FIFO 8 character buffer. DD sets displays mode. Encoded mode and Decoded mode. Generates a basic timer interrupt that occurs at approximately The first 3 bits of sent to control port selects one of 8 control words.

Six Digit Display Interface of It has an internal pull up. The timing and control unit handles the timings for the operation of the circuit. The keyboard first scans the keyboard and identifies if any key has been pressed. MMM sets keyboard mode. This mode is further classified into two output modes. To determine if a character has been typed, the FIFO status register is checked. Interface of Code given in text for reading keyboard.


Minimum count is 1 all modes except 2 and 3 disppay minimum count of 2. It then sends their relative response sisplay the pressed key to the CPU and vice-a-versa.

Intel 8279

Selects type of FIFO read and address of the read. The line is pulled down with a key closure. Usually decoded at port address prpgrammable and has following functions: Controls up to a digit numerical display. Strobed keyboard, encoded display scan.

RL pins incorporate internal pull-ups, no need for external resistor pull-ups. Scan line outputs scan both the keyboard and displays.

It is enabled only when D is intrface. The previous example illustrates an encoded keyboard, external decoder used to drive matrix. Till it is pulled low with a key closure, it is pulled up internally to keep it high.

Once done, a procedure is needed to read data from the keyboard. Interrupt request, becomes 1 when a key is pressed, data is available. In the encoded mode, the counter provides the binary count that is to be externally decoded to provide the scan lines for the keyboard and display. Used internally for timing. Strobed keyboard, decoded display scan.

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.
