1. Keyboard and Panel Switch Scanning

The 4 bits B0 B3 from the sub-CPU (6805S) are

input to the decoder (40H138).

he decoder output is sent to the keyboard transfer

contacts and the panel switches.

The on or off state of the keyboard break contacts,

make contacts and panel switches are sent to the

sub-CPU AO A7 lines via a line driver (40H240)

the sub-CPU B4 and BS lines are low.

2. Key ON/OFF and Touch Data

,Ihe time it takes for the transfer contact to connect with the make contact after separating tram the break contact is recorded by the sub-CPU timer. This value is the Touch data.

The key ON signal is generated when the transfer comact connects with the m J~ce contact, and the key OFF signal is generated when the transfer car.tact connects with the break contact.

3. ADC




Data entry

Pitch bend wheel

Modulation wheel

Foot controller

Breath controller

After-touch controller

Battery voltage


The 7 analog control voltages given above are fed to the ADC (M58990P-1). The analog input selected by the sub-CPU BO B2 bits is converted to a digital value when the sub-CPU B7 line goes low. The ADC outputs a high level to the sub-CPU C3 line when the

'rat conversion is complete. The ABC sends the S-bit

digital value to the sub-CPU when the sub-CPU B6

line goes low.


4. Data Transmission from Sub-CPU to i?lain


4 I. When a key event occurs the sub-CPU CO line

goes hips, changing the state ot the ready tlag

(R S F/F) causing the m~in CPU IRQ ~nd P l

lines to go low

4 2. The main CPU accepts one byteot d ra on lines

AO A7 from the sub-CPU when the P ! line

goes low.

4 3. Once this byte is accepted. pin 9 oi IC 4 goes

low, changing the state ot F/F and lorcir,g the

sub-CPU C 1 line low.

4 4. IVhen the sub-CPU Cl line oes low, ~-ep -l i

(above) is repeated and then in step

second byte of data is accepted by the inain


8. LED


The LED display is created via software. The LEd are lit by data latched from the main CPU.


9. LCD


Data from the main CPU is decoded and display< at the LCD unit.


10. EGS (Envelope Generator)

8 bits of data are received from the main CPU, am envelope and frequency data are sent to OPS.


ll. OPS (Operator)

The OPS uses a sine table to generate vaveforr

data to be sent to the DAC from the received enve

ope and frequency data. The OPS perm

The OPS permits combining the 6 operators in 3

different combinations. Tlute combinations a.e cKei

"algorithms". One of the 6 operatcrs o able to tee<

the sine table output back to the input. The ieecbacJ

level and algorithm data is received from the mao



12. DAC

A BA9221 DAC is used. The DAC converts the digital waveform data from the OPS to an actual analog waveform. The amplitude scale factor of the analog waveform is controlled via SFO SF3. This signal is then fed to the sample 8c hold and low-pass filter circuits from which it is sent to the output terminal. A reference voltage is applied to pin 14 of the DAC. 8 reference voltages are ger.crated by the pPD4051, and the total level is externally controlled.


13. MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital lnteriace}


Permits data transfer with other devices. Data is received by F23 of the main CPU via a photo-coupler, and data is output from main CPU pili P24.
