The DRAM has an onboard ; counter to keep track of row addresses, so the status of the external ; address bus doesn't matter. The DRAM requires 512 row addresses be refreshed ; each 8 ms, so this routine must be called once every 125 microseconds. ; Changing the initial value moved into r_ctr will alter the refresh schedule. ; For example, to refresh the entire DRAM, move #0 into r_ctr (256 loops) and ; call the routine twice in a row (512). refresh mov r_ctr,#8 :loop clrb CAS ; Activate column strobe. clrb RAS ; Activate row strobe. setb CAS ; Deactivate column strobe. setb RAS ; Deactivate row strobe. djnz r_ctr,:loop ; Repeat. ret ; This routine increments a 20-bit number representing the 1,048,576 addresses ; of the DRAM. For convenience, the number is broken into two 10-bit numbers, ; which are each stored in a pair of byte variables. Note that wherever the ; routine relies on the carry bit to indicate a byte overflow, it uses ; the syntax "add variable,#1" not "inc variable." Inc does not set or clear ; the carry flag. inc_xy add row_lo,#1 ; Add 1 to eight LSBs of row addr. sc ; If carry, add 1 to MSB, else return. ret inc row_hi ; Increment MSBs of row address. sb row_hi.2 ; If we've overflowed 10 bits, clear ret ; row_ hi and add 1 to column clr row_hi ; address, else return. add col_lo,#1 sc ; If carry, add 1 to MSB, else return. ret inc col_hi ; Increment MSBs of col address. sb col_hi.2 ; If we've overflowed 10 bits, clear ret ; col_ hi and set the flag to signal clr col_hi ; main program that we've reached the setb flag ; end of available memory, then return. ret
