Intel Programmable Key Board/Display Interface is available in the The description of pins of Programmable keyboard/display interface is given. The INTEL is specially developed for interfacing keyboard and display devices Programmable scan timing. Block diagram of The four major sections of are keyboard, scan, display and CPU interface. Keyboard section. The INTEL is a Keyboard/Display Controller specially developed for interfacing keyboard Programmable scan timing. Keyboard section: The CPU interface section takes care of data transfer between the and the processor.

Decoded keyboard with N-key rollover.

Selects type of write and the address of the interfzce. Keyboard Interface of MMM field: The display is controlled from an internal 16×8 RAM that stores the coded display information. Keyboard Interface of In the keyboard mode, this line is used as a control input and stored in FIFO on a key closure. Interface of 2 Keyboard type is programmed next.

8279 – Programmable Keyboard

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.


It has an internal pull up. It is enabled only when D is low.

To determine if a character has been typed, the FIFO status register is checked. Its data buffer interfaces the external bus of the system with the internal bus of the microprocessor.

Return lines are inputs used to sense key depression in the keyboard matrix. Decoded keyboard with 2-key lockout.

The Keyboard can be interfaced either in the interrupt or the polled mode. Strobed keyboard, encoded display scan.

Encoded mode and Decoded mode. Encoded keyboard with N-key rollover. RL pins incorporate internal pull-ups, no need for external resistor pull-ups. Encoded keyboard with 2-key lockout. Unlike the 82C55, the must be programmed first. In the encoded mode, the counter provides the binary count that is to be externally decoded to provide the scan lines for the keyboard and display. This unit controls the flow of data through the microprocessor. This mode is further classified into two output modes.

Chip select that enables programming, reading the keyboard, etc. There are 6 modes of operation for each counter: DD sets displays mode. This unit contains registers to store the keyboard, display modes, and other operations as programmed by the CPU.

This mode deals with the input given by the keyboard and this mode is further classified into 3 modes.

Microprocessor – Programmable Keyboard

Selects the number of display positions, type of key scan Consists of bidirectional pins that connect to data bus on micro. Interrupt request, becomes 1 when a key is pressed, data is available.


Z selects auto-increment for the address. Six Digit Display Interface of Controls up to a digit numerical display. DD field selects either: These are the output ports for two 16×4 or one 16×8 internal display refresh registers. If more than 8 characters are entered in the FIFO, then it means more than eight keys are pressed at a time. It has two modes i. These lines are set to 0 when any key is pressed.

Sl outputs are active-high, follow binary bit pattern or The data from keyboarr lines is synchronized with the scan lines to scan the display and the keyboard.

Programs internal clk, sets scan and debounce times. Clears the IRQ signal to the microprocessor. Causes DRAM memory system to be refreshed. Strobed keyboard, decoded display scan. Keyboard Interface of The keyboard matrix can be any size from 2×2 to 8×8. Minimum count is 1 all modes except 2 and 3 with minimum kwyboard of 2.

Generates a basic timer interrupt that occurs at approximately
