Description

The D8254 is a programmable interval timer/counter, binary compatible with the 82C54 industry standard. Since DCD’s core value is innovation, this unique IP Core solves one of the most common problems in any micro-computer system: the generation of accurate time delays under software control. The D8254 can be used as:

  • Real-time clock
  • Even counter
  • Digital one-shot
  • Programmable rate generator
  • Square wave generator
  • Binary rate multiplier
  • Complex waveform generator
  • Complex motor controller
  • Interrupt on terminal count

The D8254 includes a fully automated test bench with a complete set of tests, which allows easy package validation at each stage of the SoC design flow. Our proprietary core is a technology-independent design that can be implemented in a variety of process technologies.

ALL DCD’S IP CORES ARE TECHNOLOGY AGNOSTIC, ENSURING 100% COMPATIBILITY WITH ALL FPGA AND ASIC VENDORS.
