HELLO! Iam a 500 level electrical engineering student at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University and i'm interested in getting some info on how to make a PC read 4 batches of 8bit data inputted at the printer port of the PC. I'm using an 8255 peripheral interface chip which acts as the link between my 8085 microprocessor and my IBM pc.
Im looking forward to your reply.
