Example text

Card Selection Each card slot in an EISA machine is assigned slot-specific IO space. As an example, a card installed in slot 1 responds to IO accesses within the 1000h through 1FFFh range, while a card installed in slot 2 responds to accesses within the 2000h through 2FFFh range. In other words the most-significant digit of the IO address selects the card slot being addressed. Within each card’s assigned 4KB range (x000h through xFFFh), four ranges of 256 locations each are guaranteed exclusive to the card, while the other 12 ranges of 256 locations each may be recognized by ISA cards.

Furthermore, when an interrupt occurs and the interrupt service routine begins execution, the routine must check its device’s interrupt pending bit before servicing its device. If the bit isn’t set, it must execute a far jump to the service routine pointed to by the pointer that was originally in the interrupt table entry. In other words, the service routines must support interrupt chaining. This problem is not peculiar to Windows 95. The hardware method used on a particular system board to route PCI interrupts to selected system IRQ lines is system design-specific.

There are some unavoidable exceptions. An example would be a network controller card that must know what node it occupies on the network. The end user would have to be prompted for this type of information. book Page 43 Friday, September 8, 2000 3:05 PM 5 PCMCIA The Previous Chapter The previous chapter provided a discussion of PCI and its relationship to Plug and Play. Issues related to PCI, Windows 95, and Windows NT were also discussed. ” The Next Chapter The next chapter starts Part Two, “ISA/EISA Plug and Play,” providing an introduction to E/ISA Plug and Play configuration concepts and related terminology.
