Jump to Hardware modes - upon whether the device is operated in min or max mode. The former mode is intended for small single-processor systems. The following pin function descriptions are for the microprocessor in either minimum or maximum mode. AD0 - AD15 (I/O): Address Data Bus. These lines. In the maximum mode, the is operated by strapping the MN/MX* pin to The address/data and address/status timings are similar to the minimum mode.

Indicate which segment is accessed during current bus cycle: Indicate function of current bus cycle decoded by INTA becomes active after current instruction completes.
Interrupt Acknowledge It is used as a read strobe for interrupt acknowledge cycles. It is an active 8086 minimum and maximum mode pulse during T1 of any bus cycle.
Microprocessor - 8086 Overview
ALE signal is never floated. This signal floats to tri-state off during local bus "hold acknowledge". It will be low beginning with T2 until the middle of T4, while for a write cycle, it is active from the beginning of T2 until the middle of T4.
It floats to tri-state off during local bus "hold acknowledge".
Compare min-mode with max-mode of
Simultaneous with the issue of HLDA, the processor will float the local bus and control lines. After "HOLD" is detected as being Low, the processor will lower the HLDA and when the processor needs to run another cycle, it will again drive the local bus and control lines.
Only the pins which are unique to maximum mode are described below. S2, S1, S0 O: Status Pins These pins are active during T4, T1 8086 minimum and maximum mode T2 states and is returned to passive state 1,1,1 during T3 or Tw when ready is inactive.
Maximum mode is suitable for system having multiple processors and Minimum mode is suitable for system having a single processor. It was the first bit processor having bit ALU, bit registers, internal data bus, and bit external data bus resulting in faster processing.
Fetch Stage and Execute Stage, which improves performance. Users of the long ago realized, in hindsight, that the processor makes very efficient use of its memory.
By having a large number of 8-bit object codes, the produces object code as compact as some of the most powerful minicomputers on the market at the time. The first 8-bit opcode will shift the next 8-bit instruction to an odd byte or a bit instruction to an odd-even byte boundary.
By implementing the BHE signal and the extra logic needed, the allows instructions to exist as 1-byte, 3-byte or any other odd byte object codes.
If memory addressing is simplified so that memory is only accessed 8086 minimum and maximum mode bit units, memory will be used less efficiently.
Intel decided to make 8086 minimum and maximum mode logic more complicated, but memory use more efficient. This was at a time when memory size was considerably smaller, and at a premium, than that which users are used to today. This allows 8-bit software to be quite easily ported to the The data block is copied one byte at a time, and the data movement and looping logic utilizes bit operations.
