What are WAIT states in microprocessors? - 8085 (05-25-2012)

What are WAIT states in microprocessors, Explain.

- The WAIT state plays a significant role in preventing CPU speed incompatibilities.

- Many a times the processor is at a ready state to accept data from a device or location, but there might be no input available. This can lead to wastage of cpu time.

- So in such cases when the cpu is ready for an input but there is no such valid data then the system gets into WAIT state. In this scenario the pin 35 ( ready pin )is put into a low state.

- As soon as there is some valid data for the 8085 the system comes off the WAIT state and the low state of the READY pin is withdrawn.

Excellent and simple explanation. Most people explain in difficult way beyond the scope of beginners.
Thank u for simple explanation
