C8237 Programmable DMA Controller Core

The C8237 Programmable DMA Controller core (C8237 core) is a peripheral interface circuit for microprocessor systems. The core is designed for use with an external, 8-bit address latch. It contains four independent channels and may be expanded to any number or channels by cascading additional controller chips. Each channel has a full 64K address and word count capability.

See representative implementation results (each in a new pop-up window):

ASIC numbers Altera numbers Xilinx numbers

Applications

The C8237 core is designed to improve system performance by allowing external devices to directly transfer information from the system memory.
