Title: Cascaded information processing module having operation unit, parallel port, and serial port for concurrent data transfer and data processing

Abstract

This patent describes an information processing module. The module consists of: a parallel input port and a parallel output port; a parallel port control unit having means for performing control including direct data transfer between the parallel ports; a serial input port and a serial output port; a serial port control unit having means for performing control including direct data transfer between the serial ports; first and second rewritable memory units for storing a first program inputted through any of the input ports and a second program including an instruction code to control the execution of the first program, respectively; a third memory unit for performing buffer storing of data inputted through any of the input ports; an operation unit for processing data inputted through any of the input ports or stored data in the third memory unit; a central control unit responsive to the instruction code in the second program for controlling the port control units, the memory units and the second operation unit by means of the first program in accordance with signal representing states of the parallel port control unit, the serial port control unit and the operation unit.
