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 programmer's perspective the architecture, features, and operations of systems built using one particular type of chip or hardware specification.
