So far i've come across the "one PIO (using a bit mask) / CTC (using a trigger input) / CIO (not sure how, haven't looked too much at that chip yet, but afaik it's just a PIO/CTC combined) port per device" approach, which, frankly, sounds rather wasteful (in pcb real estate, power, money and code overhead, especially since i'm making a modular system with multiple daughter boards, so each one would need one of those chips).
I've also found US4860200A, but couldn't find any indication that ever was an actual Tektronix product.
I've tried (and failed) to wire up the circuit in GAL22V10, and want to avoid full on CPLD/FPGA/microcontroller solutions.
Essentially what i need is an IC with data bus, IEI, IEO, INT on one side and "HELP", "INTACK" on the other, and implements the logic linked to above. Address decoding and outputting the IM2 interrupt vector i can do myself easily with a binary comparator and a tristateable buffer (or more likely the combination of those in a GAL because i have a bunch of them and they save space&power)
Does anyone know any such thing I might've missed in my research?
for the record, i've asked this on reddit too, where you can see a naive and extremely wrong attempt at the GAL implementation, but we didn't come to any results there, the most helpful reply there was showing me how to do interrupts in IM0 with polling the devices to see which has data, which i already knew
