Programming QUART SC28C94

I´d lik to know if someone can get me a C example code for programming the SC28C94 QUART.

I'm having some trouble in controlling the internal interrupt system for this UART, specially when I'm detecting the Tx and Rx interrupt.

My problem is that I can attend both interrupts, but after this the interrupt line wont disable and stays active even after I attend the Rx and the Tx interrupt, even though I can see (read the CIR register) that there are no interrupts to be attended to.

If someone can help me in this matter I'd be much obliged


Thank you.

My best regards.

Abel Cunha.

Time to get out the scope or logic analyzer I guess.  Check to make sure you're acking the interrupt, and at the right time, for the right duration.
On the other scope channel watch the interrupt request line to see if it goes low.

What other chips are in this system?    

Quite often you have to send an interrupt acknowledge to the interrupt controller chip,
which then sends an interrupt clear signal to the UART.  Or in other architectures you directly clear to the UART.

The interrupt line of the QUART is directly connected to the IRQ5 input line of a PC104 board, via some hardware that I've developed to control RS232 equipment.

The QUART Datasheet indicates that we can substitute the assert of the IACKN line by the command UPDATECIR (outport(0x2A,0xValue)), and I'm doing this whenever I want to see wich of the ocurrences is responsable for the activation of the interrupt line.

I only run out of the Interrupt Service Routine after I can assure that no other interrupt needs to be attended (inport(ISR_address)=0x00).

Despite all this the IRQn line of the QUART remains at low state, wich means that it's still active and waiting to be attended.
