Abstract

Wrthin integrated microprocessor based devices, it is desirable to provide an internal bus protocol that allows individual functional blocks to be developed, verified and integrated as independent modules. The internal bus protocol employed should allow each module to have: rupt acknowledge cycle protocol solves the above problems for an integrated device with centralized interrupt control.
