N.S. :

 (1) Question No.1 is cor Ipulsory.

(2) Solve any four ques1 ons from the remaining six questions.


1. Design a 8086 based system consisting of the following :-

 (a) 8086 microprocessor working at 8 MHz.

 (b) EPROM of 64 KB using 32 KB devices.

 (c) SRAM of 32 KB using 16 KB devices.

 (d) 1 input, 1 output port (both 16 bit), interrupt devices.

 Explain the design. Also show the memory and I/o map.


2.(a) Write a program using 8086 to transfer a block of data using string instructions. Also draw the flowchart of the same.

(b) Explain the interrupt structure of the 8085 microprocessor with a neat diagram.


3. (a) Explain the necessity of a bus controller in the 8086 maximum mode system.Also explain the 8288 Bus controller in detail.

 (b) Show an interfacing diagram of the 8086 with the 8237 DMA controller.What are the advantages of Direct memory access? Enumerate with two practical examples.


4.Explainthe need of Bus arbitration.What are the various Bus arbitration schemes in loosely coupled systems? Draw a multiprocessor system of Z-8086 modules
