RST7.5 pin in 8085


RST7.5 pin is an input which is edge-sensitive. Peripherals uses it for sending a pulse, rather than a sustained high level, for the interruption of the processor. Internal to 8085 we have a flip-flop which gets connected to the interrupt pin RST7.5. We set this flip-flop to 1, when a positive-going edge occurs on the input RST 7.5. The waveform of pin RST7.5 and output Q of RST7.5 flip-flop is shown in the Fig.

Internal interrupt signal RST7.5 has a priority higher than the internal interrupt signals of RST6.5, RST5.5 and INTR. As we can see from fig the RST7.5 internal interrupt signal is activated only when

  • At logic 1 the output Q of the RST7.5 flip-flop;

  • Flip-Flop IE is in logic 1 state;

  • RST7.5 interrupt is not masked by SIM instruction.
