DATA IN (D0–D8) — Data inputs for 9-bit wide data.
RESET (RS) — Reset is accomplished whenever the Reset
(RS) input is taken to a LOW state. During reset, both internal
read and write pointers are set to the first location. A reset is
required after power-up before a write operation can take place.
Both the Read Enable (R) and Write Enable (W) inputs must
be in the HIGH state during the window shown in Figure 2
(i.e. tRSS before the rising edge of RS) and should not
change until tRSR after the rising edge of RS.
WRITE ENABLE (W) — A write cycle is initiated on the falling
edge of this input if the Full Flag (FF) is not set. Data set-up and
hold times must be adhered-to, with respect to the rising edge
of the Write Enable (W). Data is stored in the RAM array
sequentially and independently of any on-going read operation.
After half of the memory is filled, and at the falling edge of the
next write operation, the Half-Full Flag (HF) will be set to LOW,
and will remain set until the difference between the write pointer
and read pointer is less-than or equal to one-half of the total
memory of the device. The Half-Full Flag (HF) is reset by the
rising edge of the read operation.
To prevent data overflow, the Full Flag (FF) will go LOW on
the falling edge of the last write signal, which inhibits further write
operations. Upon the completion of a valid read operation, the
Full Flag (FF) will go HIGH after tRFF, allowing a new valid write
to begin. When the FIFO is full, the internal write pointer is
blocked from W, so external changes in W will not affect the FIFO
when it is full.
READ ENABLE (R) — A read cycle is initiated on the falling
edge of the Read Enable (R), provided the Empty Flag (EF) is not
set. The data is accessed on a First-In/First-Out basis, inde-
pendent of any ongoing write operations. After Read Enable (R)
goes HIGH, the Data Outputs (Q0 through Q8) will return to a
high-impedance condition until the next Read operation. When
all the data has been read from the FIFO, the Empty Flag (EF)
will go LOW, allowing the “final” read cycle but inhibiting further
read operations, with the data outputs remaining in a high-
impedance state. Once a valid write operation has been accom-
plished, the Empty Flag (EF) will go HIGH after tWEF and a valid
Read can then begin. When the FIFO is empty, the internal read
pointer is blocked from R so external changes will not affect the
FIFO when it is empty.
FIRST LOAD/RETRANSMIT (FL/RT) — This is a dual-
purpose input. In the Depth Expansion Mode, this pin is
grounded to indicate that it is the first device loaded (see
Operating Modes). The Single Device Mode is initiated by
grounding the Expansion In (XI).
The IDT7203/7204/7205/7206 can be made to retransmit
data when the Retransmit Enable Control (RT) input is pulsed
LOW. A retransmit operation will set the internal read pointer to
the first location and will not affect the write pointer. The status
of the Flags will change depending on the relative locations of
the read and write pointers. Read Enable (R) and Write Enable
(W) must be in the HIGH state during retransmit. This feature is
useful when less than 2048/4096/8192/16384 writes are per-
formed between resets. The retransmit feature is not compat-
ible with the Depth Expansion Mode.
EXPANSION IN (XI) — This input is a dual-purpose pin.
Expansion In (XI) is grounded to indicate an operation in the
single device mode. Expansion In (XI) is connected to Expan-
sion Out (XO) of the previous device in the Depth Expansion or
