D0 D7 is the MSB. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Intel – Wikipedia

Counter is a 4-digit binary coded decimal counter 0— The time between the high pulses depends on the preset count in the counter’s register, and is calculated using the following formula:. However, in free-running counter applications such as in the x86 PC, it is necessary to first write a latch command for the desired channel to the control register, so that both bytes read will belong to one and the same value.

The control word register contains 8 bits, labeled D The Gate signal should remain active high for normal counting. Thedescribed as a superset of the with higher clock speed ratings, has a “preliminary” data sheet in the Intel “Component Data Catalog”. However, the duration of the high and low clock pulses of the output will be different from mode 2. The slowest possible frequency, which is also the one normally used by computers running MS-DOS or compatible operating systems, is about There are 6 modes in total; for modes 2 and 3, the D3 bit is ignored, so the missing modes 6 and 7 are aliases for modes 2 and 3.


OUT will be initially high. The timer that is used by the system on x86 PCs is Channel 0, and its clock ticks at a theoretical value of Mode 0 is used for the generation of accurate time delay under software control. Use dmy dates from July GATE input is used as trigger input. The counter will then generate a low pulse for 1 clock cycle a strobe — after that the output will become high again.

The Intel and are Programmable Interval Timers PITswhich perform timing and counting functions using three bit counters. The interfackng is somewhat complex.

In this mode can be used as a Monostable multivibrator. Rather, its functionality is included as part of the motherboard chipset’s southbridge.

Bit 6 indicates when the count can be read; when this bit is 1, the counting element has not yet been loaded and cannot be read back by the processor. This page was last edited on 27 Septemberat Once programmed, the channels operate independently. The is implemented in HMOS and has a “Read Back” command not available on theand permits reading and writing of the same counter to be interleaved.

This is a holdover of the very first CGA PCs — they derived all necessary frequencies from a single quartz crystaland to make TV output possible, this oscillator had to run at a multiple of the NTSC color subcarrier frequency. In this mode, the counter will start counting from the initial COUNT value loaded into it, down to 0.


Bit 7 allows software to monitor the current state of the OUT pin. Timer Channel 2 is assigned to the PC speaker. In that case, the Counter is loaded with the new count and the oneshot pulse continues until the new count expires.

Reprogramming typically happens during video mode changes, when the video BIOS may be executed, and during system management mode and power saving state changes, when the system BIOS may be executed. As stated above, Channel 0 is implemented as a counter. After writing the Control Word and initial count, the Counter is armed.

The one-shot pulse can be repeated without rewriting the same count into the counter. The D3, D2, and D1 bits of the control word set the operating mode of the timer. Counting rate is equal to the input clock frequency.

Operation mode of the PIT is changed by setting the above hardware signals. Bits 5 through 0 are the same as the last bits written to the control register.
