Question 269


Describe in Detail


What is cycle stealing?


The Cycle Stealing
  • A method of accessing computer memory or bus without interfering with the CPU.
  • Similar to direct memory access for allowing I/O controllers to read or write RAM without CPU intervention.

Cycle Stealing and DMA

  • The DMA controller uses the data bus when the CPU does not need it.
  • Forces the CPU to temporarily suspend operation.
  • Cycle stealing is done only at specific break points in an instruction cycle when DMA takes control of the bus system and communicates directly with the memory.
  • Cycle-stealing allows DMA controller to transfer data to and from RAM.
  • Allows IO devices to use the RAM without separate memory.
