Peripheral Devices

  • Andrew M. Veronis


This chapter describes the connection of both serial and parallel input-output (I/O) devices to our hypothetical MC68000 system. The requirements for an adequate I/O configuration are as follows:
  1. 1.

    A serial connection to a telephone for communication with other systems

  2. 2.

    A serial connection to a terminal

  3. 3.

    A parallel connection to a printer based on the assumption that most available printers have the Centronix type parallel configuration

  4. 4.

    An audio cassette interface for secondary storage.
