PCx86 ChipSet Component
Creates an instance of the ChipSet component, which includes support for the following hardware:
- 8237 Direct Memory Access (DMA) Controller
- 8259 Programmable Interrupt Controller (PIC)
- 8253 Programmable Interval Timers (PIT)
- 8255 Programmable Peripheral Interface (PPI)
- Speaker (sound requires AudioContext support in the web browser)
The IBM PC model number to simulate (must be 5150, 5160 or 5170).
sw1 (optional): A binary string representing DIP switches #1 through #8 for the SW1 switch block on the IBM PC motherboard, as follows:
- 0 (OFF) for normal operation
- 1 (ON) to loop in the ROM BIOS POST (Power-On Self-Test)
- 0 (OFF) if math coprocessor installed
- 1 (ON) if math coprocessor NOT installed
- #3 and #4:
- 11 for 64Kb
- 01 for 128Kb
- 10 for 192Kb
- 00 for 256Kb
- #5 and #6:
- 11 for no monitor (or EGA installed)
- 01 for Color Display (for use with CGA in 40x25 mode)
- 10 for Color Display (for use with CGA in 80x25 mode)
- 00 for Monochrome Display (or more than one Color/Monochrome monitor)
- #7 and #8:
- 11 for 1 diskette drive
- 01 for 2 diskette drives
- 10 for 3 diskette drives
- 00 for 4 diskette drives
A binary string representing DIP switches 1-8 for the SW2 switch block on the IBM PC motherboard, indicating the number of 32Kb blocks of additional RAM installed (model 5150 only).
true (default) to enable sound, assuming the browser supports AudioContext, or false to disable sound.
false (default) to update timers in sync with CPU speed, true to scale timer updates to match real-world time.
If no sw1 setting is provided, floppies may be used to specify an array of floppy drive capacities; eg, [360, 360] for two 360Kb drives; default is none. Valid values include: 360, 720, 1200, and 1440.
If no sw1 setting is provided, monitor specifies the primary monitor type, and should be one of:
Allows a specific startup date and time (model 5170 only); the dateRTC string must be of the form:
Also supports the attributes of Component.
For use with a control of type switches, which creates a <div> that the ChipSet will use to display the current settings of the SW1 switch block.
Same as above, but for the SW2 switch block, if any.
For use with a control of type descriptions, which creates a <div> that the ChipSet will use to display a text description of the selected DIP switch settings.
<chipset id="chipset" model="5150" sw1="01000001" sw2="11110000"/>
<div id="..." class="pc-chipset pc-component"> <div class="pc-container"> <div class="pcx86-chipset" data-value="id:'...',name:'...',model:'...',sw1:'...',sw2:'...'"> </div> </div> </div>
Also, if any controls are defined, another <div> of class=”pc-controls” is created in the container <div>, with each control inside a <div> of class=”pc-control”.
