Looking at the above command, we dont tell the FDC will to put the data at. Compliance is Not Enough: In the next tutorial, we will be looking at the DMA. It dumps the bytes into 4 conhroller blocks for readability. The next paramater is the GAP 3 length.

If a read or write command is issued to Side 1 of a single sided control,er then this flag is set. Like all mechanical devices, they tend to be slower then the speed of the running software. All command bytes and command paramaters are sent to the FDC through this register!

WE Pin – Write enable pin. Okay, okay, lets get back on track here pun intended. This bit is set only during the execution phase in non-DMA mode. Status Register 0 ST0 Byte 1: Some registers that are used to communicate with the FDC allow you to detect the input pins of the diwk and the cable.


Must be enabled for all operations, both Read and Write.

Its finally time to work with the floppy drive! The Data Length paramater byte is only valid if the sector size is 0. The FDC knows how many bytes to expect from the first command byte. It uses out floppy driver built in this tutorial to do it. If the FDC is not serviced by the main systems during data transfers within a certain time interval, this flag is set.

When describing the format of a command, we represent an extended bit with a character like M or F.

So, Sector 1 represents the first bytes of a disk. This is a read only register that monitors the state of several interface pins controler the controller.

Only on old controllers. This will be resolved as soon as possible.

Next paramater is the sectors per track Note that the bits in this register can change between models. Determines early, late and normal times. There is 18 sectors per track.



M – MultiTrack Operation 0: It is possible to select up to 16 Kbytes per sector on the FDC. If you want to operate on both heads, you need to set the Multiple Track Bit. Primarily in Japan there are 3. When it completes, you know the command finished and its safe to continue. Basically what this means is that we will only be getting an interrupt whenever a read, write, seek, or calibrate command completes as well as during initialization.

Most of the floppy disk controller FDC functions are performed by the integrated circuit but some are performed by external hardware circuits. Okay, first lets take a look the command listing. These cannot be any size, however, and always follows a formula:
