DRPIC1655X High Performance Configurable 8-bit RISC Microcontroller ver 2.15 OVERVIEW The DRPIC1655X is a low-cost, high performance, 8-bit, fully static soft IP Core, dedicated for operation with fast (typically onchip) dual ported memory. The core has been designed with a special concern about low power consumption. DRPIC1655X soft core is softwarecompatible with the industry standard PIC16C554 and PIC16C558. It implements an enhanced Harvard architecture (i.e. separate instruction and data memories) with independent address and data buses. The 14 bit program memory and 8-bit dual port data memory allow instruction fetch and data operations to occur simultaneously. The advantage of this architecture is that instruction fetch and memory transfers can be overlapped by multi stage pipeline, so that the next instruction can be fetched from program memory while the current instruction is executed with data from the data memory. The DRPIC1655X architecture is 4 times faster compared to standard architecture. So most instructions are executed within 1 system clock period, except the instructions which directly operates on program counter PC (GOTO, CALL, RETURN), this situation require the pipeline to be cleared and subsequently refilled. This operation takes additional one clock cycle. The DRPIC1655X Microcontroller fits perfectly in applications ranging from highAll trademarks mentioned in this document are trademarks of their respective owners. speed automotive and appliance motor control to low-power remote transmitters/receivers, pointing devices and telecom processors. Built-in power save mode make this IP perfect for applications where power consumption is critical.

All Rights Reserved. BLOCK DIAGRAM ALU – Arithmetic Logic Unit performs arithmetic and logic operations during execution of an instruction. This module contains work register (W) and Status register. Control Unit – It performs the core synchronization and data flow control. This module manages execution of all instructions. Performs decode and control functions for all other blocks. It contains program counter (PC) and hardware stack. Hardware Stack – it’s a configurable hardware stack. The stack space is not a part of either program or data space and the stack pointer is not readable or writable. The PC is pushed onto the stack when CALL instruction is executed or an interrupt causes a branch. The stack is popped while RETURN, RETFIE and RETLW instruction execution. The stack operates as a circular buffer. This means that after the stack has been pushed eight times, the ninth push overwrites the value that was stored from the first push. RAM Controller – It performs interface functions between Data memory and DRPIC1655X internal logic. It assures correct Data Memory addressing and data transfers. The DRPIC1655X supports two addressing modes: direct or indirect. In Direct Addressing the 9-bit direct address is computed from RP(1:0) bits (STATUS) and 7 least significant bits of instruction word. Indirect addressing is possible by using the INDF register. Any instruction using INDF register actually accesses data pointed to by the file select register FSR. Reading INDF register indirectly will produce 00h. Writing to the INDF register indirectly results in a nooperation. An effective 9-bit address is obtained by concatenating the IRP bit (STATUS) and the 8-bit FSR register. Interrupt Controller – Interrupt Controller module is responsible for interrupt manage system for the external and internal interrupt sources. It contains interrupt related register called INTCON. There are three interrupt sources: The interrupt control register INTCON records individual interrupt requests in flag bits. A global interrupt enable bit, GIE enables all unmasked interrupts. Each interrupt source has an individual enable bit, which can enable or disable corresponding interrupt. When an interrupt is responded to, the GIE is cleared to disable any further interrupt, the return address is pushed into the stack and the PC is loaded with 0004h. The interrupt flag bits must be cleared in software before reenabling interrupts. clk por Hardware Stack mclr sleep prgdata prgaddr ALU Control Unit RAM Controller intr t0cki Interrupt Controller Timer 0 clkwdt Watchdog Timer docddatai docddatao docdclk prgdatao prgwe DoCD Debugger I/O Ports TM sfrdatai sfrrdaddr sfrwraddr sfrwe sfroe portai portbi portci portdi portao portbo portco portdo trisa trisb trisc trisd Timer 0 – Main system’s timer and prescaler. This timer operates in two modes: 8-bit timer or 8-bit counter. In the “timer mode”, timer registers are incremented every 4 CLK periods. When the prescaler is assigned into the TIMER prescale ration can be divided by 2, 4 .. 256. In the “counter mode” the timer register is incremented every falling or rising edge of T0CKI pin, dependent on T0SE bit in OPTION register. ♦ External interrupt INT ♦ TMR0 overflow interrupt ♦ PORTB change interrupt (pins B7:B4) All trademarks mentioned in this document are trademarks of their respective owners. ramdatai ramdatao rdaddr wraddr ramwe ramoe http://www.DigitalCoreDesign.com http://www.dcd.pl Copyright 1999-2007 DCD – Digital Core Design. All Rights Reserved. Watchdog Timer– it’s a free running timer. WDT has own clock input separate from system clock. It means that the WDT will run even if the system clock is stopped by execution of SLEEP instruction. During normal operation, a WDT time-out generates a Watchdog reset. If the device is in SLEEP mode the WDT time-out causes the device to wake-up and continue with normal operation. I/O Ports – Block contains DRPIC1655X’s general purpose I/O ports and data direction registers (TRIS). The DRPIC1655X has four 8-bit full bi-directional ports PORT A, PORT B, PORT C, PORT D. Each port’s bit can be individually accessed by bit addressable instructions. Read and write accesses to the I/O port are performed via their corresponding SFR’s PORTA, PORTB, PORTC, PORTD. The reading instruction always reads the status of Port pins. Writing instructions always write into the Port latches. Each port’s pin has an corresponding bit in TRISA, B, C and D registers. When the bit of TRIS register is set this means that the corresponding bit of port is configured as an input (output drivers are set into the High Impedance). DoCD™ Debug Unit – it’s a real-time hardware debugger provides debugging capability of a whole SoC system. In contrast to other on-chip debuggers DoCD™ provides non-intrusive debugging of running application. It can halt, run, step into or skip an instruction, read/write any contents of microcontroller including all registers, internal, external, program memories, all SFRs including user defined peripherals. Hardware breakpoints can be set and controlled on program memory, internal and external data memories, as well as on SFRs. Hardware breakpoint is executed if any write/read occurred at particular address with certain data pattern or without pattern. The DoCD™ system includes three-wire interface and complete set of tools to communicate and work with core in real time debugging. It is built as scalable unit and some features can be turned off to save silicon and reduce power consumption. A special care on power consumption has been taken, and when debugger is not used it is automatically switched in power save mode. Finally whole debugger is turned off when debug option is no longer used. All trademarks mentioned in this document are trademarks of their respective owners.
