Abstract

This article describes a circuit modification of I/O attaching a bus for round-robin device access instead of simple priority ordering by the devices to the bus. In this regard, use is made of JK edge triggered flip-flops and associated gating logic to provide the round-robin control mechanism to the fixed priority scheme of the bus.
