The Intel 8254 is a counter/timer device designed to solve
the common timing control problems in microcomputer
system design.
It provides three independent 16-bit counters, each capable
of handling clock inputs up to 10 MHz.
All modes are software programmable. The 8254 is a
superset of the 8253.
The 8254 uses HMOS technology and comes in a 24-pin
plastic or CERDIP package.
