Friday, July 19, Programming the Vintage Intel MCS Microcontrollers I have had a box in my parts collection for a few years that contains a variety of interesting vintage components. The most prominent are the Intel L microcontrollers. These microcontrollers are from the Intel MCS commonly known as the line. They have 64 bytes of RAM and access to bytes of external program memory. Thankfully they are not the one-time-programmable OTP variety so I am free to put them up to any task. These processors have a copyright date of which puts them at roughly twice my age.

The interrupt flags are cleared when the processor branches to the interrupt service routine ISR. Memory Microcontroller requires a program which is a collection of instructions. This program tells microcontroller to do specific tasks. These programs require a memory on which these can be saved and read by Microcontroller to perform specific operations of a particular task.

The memory which is used to store the program of the microcontroller is known as code memory or Program memory of applications. The data memory of the is used to store data temporarily for operation is known RAM memory.

BUS Basically Bus is a collection of wires which work as a communication channel or medium for transfer of Data. These buses consists of 8, 16 or more wires of the microcontroller. Thus, these can carry 8 bits,16 bits simultaneously. Hire two types of buses that are shown in below Address Bus Data Bus Address Bus: Microcontroller has a 16 bit address bus for transferring the data.

It is used to address memory locations and to transfer the address from CPU to Memory of the microcontroller. Bank address or Register addressing mode.

Direct Addressing mode. Register indirect addressing mode. For this purpose, microcontroller has an on-chip oscillator which works as a clock source for Central Processing Unit of the microcontroller.

The output pulses of oscillator are stable. Therefore, it enables synchronized work of all parts of the Microcontroller. These counters are again divided into a 8 bit register. The timers are used for measurement of intervals to determine the pulse width of pulses.



The will also accept commands to turn indicator LEDs on or off. There are eight registers in each bank. Retrieved 10 February — via Synthfool. The families differ mostly in instruction sets and architecture.
