HOLD remains active for duration of DMADMA activates DACK (DMA acknowledge), telling device to start transferDMA starts transfer by putting address of first byte on address bus and activating MEMR; it then activates IOW to write to peripheral. DMA decrements counter and increments address pointer. Repeat until count reaches zeroDMA deactivates HRQ, giving bus back to CPU</p></li><li><p>8237 DMA Usage of Systems Bus</p></li><li><p>Conclusion: I/O ChannelsI/O devices getting more sophisticatede.g. 3D graphics cardsCPU instructs I/O controller to do transferI/O controller does entire transferImproves speedTakes load off CPUDedicated processor is faster</p></li></ul>
