The W65C22S6TPG-14 Versatile Interface Adapter (VIA) is a flexible I/O device for use with the 65xx series microprocessor family. The W65C22 includes functions for programmed control of two peripheral ports (Ports A and B). Two program controlled 8-bit bidirectional peripheral I/O ports allow direct interfacing between the microprocessor and selected peripheral units. Each port has input data latching capability. Two programmable Data Direction Registers (A and B) allow selection of data direction (input or output) on an individual line basis. Also provided are two programmable 16-bit Interval Timer/Counters with latches. Timer 1 may be operated in a One-Shot Interrupt Mode with interrupts on each count to zero, or in a Free-Run Mode with a continuous series of evenly spaced interrupts. Timer 2 functions as both an interval and pulse counter. Serial Data transfers are provided by a serial to parallel/parallel to serial shift register. Application versatility is further increased by various control registers, including an Interrupt Flag Register, an Interrupt Enable Register and two Function Control Registers.

The W65C22S is lower power, faster and direct drive outputs with no current limiting resistors on outputs ports.
The W65C22S IRQB is a totem pole output that CAN NOT be Wire-ORd. Some customers have had to use a diode in series with the IRQB output when using the W65C22S in their systems that had Wire-ORd interrupts. Alternatively the W65C22N can be used.
