  • Patent number: 4090239
    Abstract: An input/output system includes a plurality of modules and a system interface unit having a plurality of ports, each of which connects to a different one of the modules. The plurality of modules includes at least one processor and one memory module. The system interface unit includes a timer unit and a priority network for processing processor interrupt requests on a priority basis. The priority network connects to a register for storing coded priority level signals to be assigned to the different types of interrupt requests. The register is conditioned to store a low priority level for timer interrupts. The timer unit includes a preset register, an interval counter and a rollover counter. At the completion of each time interval, the interval counter is loaded automatically from the preset register and counting is continued. Simultaneously, the interval counter conditions the rollover counter to store a count registering the total number of completed intervals counted.

  • Patent number: 4084234
    Abstract: An input/output system includes a local memory module including a cache store and a backing store. The system includes a plurality of command modules and a system interface unit having a plurality of ports, each connected to a different one of the command modules and to the local memory module. The cache store provides fast access to blocks of information previously fetched from the backing store in response to memory commands generated by any one of a plurality of command modules during both data transfer and data processing operations. The local memory module includes apparatus operative in response to each memory command to enable the command module to write into cache store the data which is requested to be written into backing store when it is established that such data has been previously stored in cache store.

  • Patent number: 4080649
    Abstract: An input/output system couples to a host processor through a system interface unit and includes at least two input/output processing units and a memory unit. The system interface unit includes interrupt processing logic circuits for each input/output processing unit for processing interrupt requests on a priority basis. The system interface unit further includes a processor intercommunication network which connects to each of the interrupt processing logic circuits.The input/output operating system initiates an input/output operation in response to a connect interrupt generated by the host processor executing a connect instruction. The interrupt is directed to an assigned input/output processing unit by the System Interface Unit (SIU). The assigned processor executes an instruction sequence which causes an appropriate entry to be placed in an operating system queue located within the memory unit. The queue entry has sufficient data to specify the desired I/O operation.

  • Patent number: 4075686
    Abstract: A local memory of an input/output system includes a cache store and a backing store. The system includes a plurality of command modules. The cache store provides fast access to blocks of information previously fetched from the backing store in response to memory commands generated by any one of a plurality of command modules during both data transfer and data processing operations. Each memory command applied to the memory unit incudes a predetermined bit which is coded to designate when the information requested from the local memory unit is to be written into the cache store. The local memory unit includes aparatus operative in response to each memory command to enable the command module to bypass selectively the cache store in accordance with the coding of the predetermined bit thereby enabling the command modules to execute operations more expeditiously during the performance of input/output data transfer operations.

  • Patent number: 4070704
    Abstract: An automatic reconfiguration hardware capability for automatically altering the local memory/processor configuration and reinitiating a bootload sequence in the event of a failure in the start-up phase of the input/output processor bootload. The automatic reconfiguration logic is enabled when a bootload request originates from the system console or the central system. Once a bootload request is initiated, all possible local memory/input-output processor (IOPP) configurations are attempted without further manual intervention. If no configuration is successful, a bootload error indication is presented at the I0P configuration panel.

  • Patent number: 4035780
    Abstract: Priority interrupt apparatus includes a level priority network, a plurality of priority networks, and selector circuits, each corresponding in number to the number of channel sources operative to generate interrupt requests. Each priority network receives requests signals corresponding to different types of possible event signals requiring attention and produces a type code designating the highest priority event from the channel associated therewith. The priority is established in accordance with a preassigned event priority approximating the priorities assignable by program. Each of the selector circuits is connected to receive as a control input the type code signals generated by the priority network associated therewith. Additionally, each selector circuit receives a different set of interrupt level number signals representative of priorities assigned by program to the number of possible event signals.

  • Patent number: 4010450
    Abstract: A firmware/hardware mechanism in a general purpose computer system automatically provides alternate addressing paths for addressing data in the same or another main memory module when a failure is detected in a portion of the main memory or main memory module. Two types of memory failures are detected and an alternate path provided for each type of failure. The first type is a failure in a memory which is not detected by memory hardware or systen interface unit SIU hardware; such failure is handled by an exception processing mechanism to provide an alternate path to a good memory module. The second type of failure is detected by memory hardware or systen interface unit SIU hardware; such failure is handled by an interrupt processing mechanism to provide an alternate path to a good memory module.

  • Patent number: 4001783
    Abstract: Priority interrupt hardware monitors for the existence of, and determines the relative importance of requests to determine or attempt to determine when to interrupt an executing process on a processor. The processor may be interrupted only when the hardware determines that something more important needs to be done than what is being done by the currently executing process. Additionally, the processor may set interrupts for itself so that a portion of an executing process may be executed at a higher priority than that required for the remaining portion of the same process.
