The D8259 is a soft Core of Programmable Interrupt Controller. It is fully compatible with the 82C59A device. Our efficient IP core can manage up to 8-vectored priority interrupts for the processor. Moreover, you can also program it to cascade and gain up to 64 vectored interrupts. And if it's not enough, you can always get more than 64 vectored interrupts. Just program our IP Core to the Poll Command Mode. The D8259 can operate in all 82C59A modes and it supports all 82C59A features.
The D8259 Package includes fully automated testbench. Thanks to complete set of tests, you can easily validate the whole package at each stage of SoC design flow. Same as all DCD's IP Cores, this one's got also a technology independent design, that can be implemented in a variety of process technologies.
