|This port only exists as a distinct port on the TI-83 Plus Silver Edition, the TI-84 Plus, and the TI-84 Plus Silver Edition. On the standard TI-83 Plus, it acts as a shadow of port 06.|
Port Number: 2Eh
Function: Memory Access Delay
This port will add a 1 cycle delay for certain types of reads for the ram or the flash. This port's effect is enabled by the lcd delay port currently selected by the current CPU speed.
To enable by the LCD Ports
- Bit 0 of the LCD ports (depending on current CPU speed mode) enable the effects of the flash delay controlled be 2E.
- Bit 1 of the LCD ports (depending on current CPU speed mode) enable the effects of the ram delay controlled be 2E.
Read and Write Values of port 2E
- Bits 0-2 of port 2E affect the flash reads and (attempted) writes.
- Bit 0 adds a clock for every opcode read from the flash.
- Bit 1 adds a clock for every non-opcode read from the flash.
- Bit 2 adds a clock for every (attempted) write to the flash.
- Bits 4-6 of port 2E affect the ram reads and writes.
- Bit 4 adds a clock for every opcode read from the ram.
- Bit 5 adds a clock for every non-opcode read from the ram.
- Bit 6 adds a clock for every write to the ram.
- Bits 3 and 7 are not used in port 2E, though they can be toggled.
With bits 0 & 4, extra clock cycle are doubled if the instruction is prefixed. We can safely deduct that the port adds a clock cycle each time the R register is incremented.
Why this port is necessary is unknown, however it is set to 44 on the 83+SE and 45 on the 84+(SE).
This port is not available on the normal TI-83+. On the normal TI-83+ this port is a shadow of Port 06h.
