This chip is designed to monitor the microprocessor periphery bus. The chip has beend esigned to detect certain bit patterns that appear on the bus. Up to 3 consecutive patterns identified through a mask (that selects which bits to check) and the pattern itself can be detected. Once a valid pattern is detected an interrupt signal is generated, and once of the following operations can be executed:
A simple serial interface is used to program the chip. A single busbrother can monitor 16 bits. For a 32-bit system four chips have to be used in parallel (2 for the data bus and 2 for the address bus)
Although there is no logo on the chip, the cover page on the semester thesis shows Jake and Elwood from the movie Blues Brothers.
