What is the purpose and technique of DMA logic?
Weegy: During any given bus cycle, one of the system components connected to the system bus is given control of the bus. This component is said to be the master during that cycle and the component it is communicating with is said to be the slave. [ The CPU with its bus control logic is normally the master, but other specially designed components can gain control of the bus by sending a bus request to the CPU. After the current bus cycle is ... (More)

What is the purpose of DMA logic?
Weegy: The DMA logic unit controls the connection of selected one of the I/O peripheral devices to the memory subsystem for direct transfer or data therebetween, when the I/O peripheral devices place a request. [ The DMA logic unit includes a base address register, a base count register and a DMA controller. ] User: What is the purpose and technique of DMA logic? (More)

The techniques of DMA logic are:

- using caching techniques to keep data pinned as long as possible, producing overhead reductions for applications that repeatedly - communicate in the same memory area
pipelining memory pinning operations and data transfer (as done on Infiniband or Myrinet)
deferring memory pinning out of the critical path, thus hiding the latency increase
entirely removing the need for pinning (as Quadrics does)

What is the purpose and technique of DMA logic?
Weegy: Direct memory access (DMA) is a feature of modern computers that allows certain hardware subsystems within the computer to access system memory independently of the central processing unit (CPU). Without DMA, [ when the CPU is using programmed input/output, it is typically fully occupied for the entire duration of the read or write operation, and is thus unavailable to perform other work. With DMA, the CPU initiates the transfer, does ... (More)

What are the differences between an interrupt and a trap? Provide an example of each. What is their importance?
Weegy: An interrupt is a hardware-generated event, usually caused by an I/O device requesting service. A trap, on the other and, is a software-generated interrupt. Traps are caused by 1) system calls and 2) exceptional software conditions (e.g. [ Divide by 0). Other than the source and function, processing of traps and interrupts is the same. ] (More)
