5188Re: Address Displays
- Mar 6 9:30 AMNathan,
An address display will be a big help when you are entering data or
looking at various memory locations but one thing that you need to
consider is that the address won't always be correct when you stop a
RUNNING program to look at the display.
The reason is the address buss is used for various data transfer
operations by the 1802 chip internally and most 1802 designs don't have
a synchronized halt process. Somtimes you stop at the right time and
sometimes you don't. You can decode the various states and cause the
address bytes to always reflect the proper data but that adds a little
to the complexity.
One of my 1802's has individual led's on the address buss and when the
ubiquituous binary counter program is running you can see the upper
address bits changing in time with the data bits. Guess how the D
register gets transferred to the output data buss!
My 1802 also is timed for a synchronous halt so that one can step
through a program exactly one whole instruction at a time but I never
use that feature. Guess I shouldn't have wasted time designing it in.
