Types of I/O
Direct memory access
In this lecture, we discuss concepts related to I/O components. The topics include (1) input/output types, (2) various types of I/O concepts and circuits, and (3) direct memory access. Although the implementation of the these I/O components varies among microprocessors, the design concepts are basically unchanged in the last twenty years.
