Explain briefly the role of the 8284 processor? (06-12-2012)

Explain briefly the role of the 8284 processor?



- The 8284 is considered to be a supporting part for microprocessors. It is responsible for the generation of clock signals.

- The clock generator forms an intrinsic part of a circuit as without it every component in the system would have to create a signal for it independently.

- When F/Cā€™ is at logic, the oscillator output is steered through to the divide-by-3 counter.
