The High Performance SCSI Controller (HPSC) has a flexible three bus architecture. The HPSC has a 16-bit DMA interface, an 8 bit host data interface and an 8-bit SCSI data interface. The HPSC is designed to minimize host intervention by implementing common SCSI sequences in hardware. An on-chip state machine reduces protocol overheads by performing the required sequences in response to a single command from the host. Selection, reselection, information transfer and disconnection commands are directly supported. The 16-byte-internal FIFO further assists in minimizing host involvement. The FIFO provides a temporary storage for all command, data, status and message bytes as they are transferred between the 16 bit host data bus and the 8 bit SCSI data bus. During DMA operations the FIFO acts as a buffer to allow greater latency in the DMA channel. This permits the DMA channel to be suspended for higher priority operations such as DRAM refresh or reception of an ISDN packet. Parity on the DMA bus is optional. Parity can either be generated and checked or it can be simply passed through. The patented GLITCH EATER Circuitry in the High Performance SCSI Controller detects signal changes that are less than or equal 15 ns and filters them out. It is designed to dramatically increase system performance and reliability by detecting and filtering glitches that can cause system failure. The GLITCH EATER Circuitry is implemented on the ACK and REQ lines only. These lines often encounter many electrical anomalies which degrade system performance and reliability. The two most common are Reflections and Voltage Spikes. Reflections are a result of high current SCSI signals that are mismatched by stubs, cables and terminators. These reflections vary from application to application and can trigger false handshake signals on the ACK and REQ lines if the voltage amplitude is at the TTL threshold levels. Spikes are generated by high current SCSI signals switching concurrently. On the control signals (ACK and REQ) they can trigger false data transfers which result in loss of data, addition of random data, double clocking and reduced system reliability. AMD's GLITCH EATER Circuitry helps maintain excellent system performance by treating the glitches. Refer to the diagram on the next page.
