Figure 1. Extended Monochrome Graphics Display Adapter Block Diagram
The Extended Monochrome Graphics Display Adapter consists of 7 major components:
1. The I/O channel interface logic which communicates with the I/O channel and allows the
system to control the display functions.
2. The BAMDA address logic which controls access to the bit map and converts system
addresses to bit map X and Y coordinates.
3. The BAMDA bit map memory which is divided into a display bit map and a hidden area
memory.
