An invaluable tool and reference on ISA architecture and time reading it is time well spent. You might just end up wondering how you ever got along without it! -David Greenberg, Dell Computer Corporation ISA System Architecture describes the hardware architecture of ISA (Industry Standard Architecture), providing a clear, concise explanation of an ISA system in detail. The authors provide a comprehensive treatment of the bus including: bus cycles addressing I/O RAM, ROM, and cache memory cache architectures decode and reset logic interrupts system kernel bus mastering DMA RTC and configuration RAM If you design or test hardware or software that involves ISA, ISA System Architecture is an essential, time-saving tool. The PC System Architecture Series is a crisply written and comprehensive set of guides to the most important PC hardware standards. Each title explains from a programmers perspective the architecture, features, and operations of systems built using one particular type of chip or hardware specification.A bus cycle addressing an 8-bit ISA device defaults to six BCLK cycles (four wait states) if the following two conditions are met: ... diagram and the following numbered steps illustrate the sequence of events that occur during a default ISA 16-bitanbsp;...
