Figure 7-5. Status Bits Assignment
If the interrupt level is zero due either to
initialize, master clear or being explicitly set, no
interrupt will be issued for the channel. If a
condition or event occurs which would normally
cause an interrupt, the appropriate bits in the
status word will be set, but no interrupt will be
attempted or saved. A test for completion of
operation may be made by attempting to issue an
instruction to the channel. A busy channel will
result in a NAK response.
