Floppy-disk controller

Here is didk list of common bits: This one is important to know. We will look at these bits in the command byte later.

All it does is install our interrupt handler using our HAL’s contrlller routine, initializes the DMA for transfers, and resets the controller so it is ready for use. This page was last edited on 10 Septemberat Computer storage devices Floppy disk computer storage Integrated circuits.

This is done through the output data bus pins DB0 – DB7, which in turn is through the systems data bus which can be read by software. To adjust the precompensation delay, we can set these bits to one of the following: So, in our case, we set up the DMA buffer to 0x, remember?

The processor takes the IRQ, gets its address from the idtr, and voila – our interrupt is called. This series is intended to demonstrate and teach operating system development from the ground up. If an invalid command 8227 issued, the value returned from the data register is 0x To start it, just set the bit that corrosponds to the drive you want to start or stop the motor.

Our list has the most common: The demo uses atoi to convert a string entered from the user into a useable integer.
