The MC CRT controller performs the interface between an MPU and a raster -scan CRT display. It is intended for use in MPU-based controllers for CRT. The Cathode Ray Tube Controller (CRTC) is a programmable IC used to generate video displays. This IC is used in a variety of computers including the.

When the chip signals horizontal sync it increases the row address. The sync generation includes generation of horizontal and vertical video blanking signals, which are used to condition the external pixel generation circuits.

Smaller changes are that the MOS Technology and one variation of the Rockwell lack interlaced output support and all conttoller include an optional address skew, which delays display enable for one character cycle if set.

The two ICs were quite different.

However, if the internal timing values on the chip are altered at the correct time it can be made to prepare for a new frame without ending the current one – creating a non-continuous break in generated addresses midway through the display.


Using the full address range RA0-RA4: Then a few days later I found all the parts in an anti static bag and a missing bread board. If he stepped up from the ATmegap to a ATmeag or ATmega then he would have enough pins to run it straight off the micro and be much faster.

This means that character displays using thecompared to all-points-addressable graphics displays of the same cgt, require much less memory but still require high memory bandwidth on the order of the bandwidth required for graphics.

I too used to controllfr with a Two additional registers are included for setting any address the CPU wishes to read and the chip alternates between outputting addresses for display generation and the display set for CPU access. Notify me of new comments via email. Views Read Edit View history.

Therefore, adding such a character buffer to the was not a cost-effective approach when the chip was introduced.

If the row address does not equal the programmatically set number of rows per character, then the character address is reset to the value it had at the beginning of the scanline that was just completed. This has the advantages of easier programming for non-character display and easy smooth horizontal scrolling but can impede smooth vertical scrolling.


Ctt being said his goal was to just get the display system running.

If he employed custom hardware to drive it, it probably would be much faster. Now that memory is very inexpensive, fast memory included, there is little motivation to reduce the memory bandwidth required by a video display controller, so this is no longer an important engineering consideration.

cojtroller Obviously one could write firmware for a modern micro running at an appropriate speed to replace the at speed. On the the same thing requires adjustment of the character height. Every address it generates is composed of contdoller parts – a 14 bit character address and a 5 bit row address.

Then did a board using anot thefor contorller core based system. Interested in classic video controllers? Although intended for designs based on the Motorola CPU and given a related part number, it was more commonly used alongside various other processors. The reads the start address for its display once per frame. You are commenting using your Twitter account.

The process of reading that value, converting it into pixels, and sending it to a CRT is left to other circuits.
