What is meant by Wait State?

  Shared By: Adalric Fischer    Date: Nov 24    Category: Assembly Language    Views: 2659

Answer:

This state is used by slow peripheral devices. The peripheral devices can transfer the data to or from the microprocessor by using READY input line. The microprocessor remains in wait state as long as READY line is low. During the wait state, the contents of the address, address/data and control buses are held constant.
