Keyboard Interface of MMM field: Pins SL2-SL0 sequentially scan each column through a counting operation. Used internally for timing. 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.

Intel 8279

The Keyboard can be interfaced either in the interrupt or the polled mode. Allows half-bytes to be blanked. Keyboard Interface of The keyboard dispoay of maximum 64 keys, which are interfaced with the CPU by imterface the key-codes. Minimum count is 1 all modes except 2 and 3 with minimum count of 2. Controls up to a digit numerical display.

These are the output ports for two 16×4 or one 16×8 internal display refresh registers. The timing and control unit handles the timings for the operation of the circuit. These lines are set to 0 when any key is pressed.


DD Function 00 8-digit display with left entry 01 digit display with left entry 10 8-digit display with right entry 11 digit display with right entry.

This unit contains registers to store the keyboard, display modes, and other operations as programmed by the CPU.

The line is pulled down with a key closure. BB prrogrammable similarly except that they blank turn off half of the output pins. To determine if a character has been typed, the FIFO status register is checked. It then sends their relative response of the pressed key to the CPU and vice-a-versa.

SL outputs are active-low only one low at any time. Programs internal clk, sets scan and debounce times. Scan line outputs scan both the keyboard and displays. Shift connects to Shift key on keyboard. Each counter has a program control word used to select the way the counter operates.

In the keyboard mode, this line is used as a control input and stored in FIFO on a key closure. Clears the display or FIFO. In the Interrupt modethe processor is requested service only if any key is pressed, otherwise the CPU will continue with its main task.

Pinout Definition A0: Encoded keyboard with N-key rollover. Provides a timing source to the internal speaker and other devices. Consists of bidirectional pins that connect to data bus on micro. The 74LS drives 0’s on one line at a time. Interface of Code given in text for reading keyboard.

This unit first scans the key closure row-wise, if found then the keyboard debounce unit debounces the key entry. This is when the overrun status is set. Strobed keyboard, encoded 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. Till it is pulled low with a key closure, it is pulled up internally to keep it high. These are the scan lines used to scan the keyboard matrix and display the digits.


Keyboard Interface of First three bits given below select one of 8 control registers opcode. Scans and encodes up to a key keyboard. When it is low, it indicates the transfer of data. Interface of 2 Keyboard type is programmed next. Decoded keyboard with 2-key lockout.

The first 3 bits of sent to control port selects one of 8 control words. MMM sets keyboard mode. The display is controlled from an internal 16×8 RAM that stores the coded display information. Strobed keyboard, decoded display scan. Selects the number of display positions, type of key scan The previous example illustrates an encoded keyboard, external decoder used to drive matrix. The Shift input line status is stored along with every key code in FIFO in the scanned keyboard mode.
