The EagleTec SMSC USB Floppy Controller is a floppy disc controller or FDC which is a special purpose chip. It is mostly connected with circuitry that can manipulate, control as well as write to a computer system’s floppy disk drive. Four to several floppy discs are normally handled by just a single floppy disc controller. Normally, this is connected to the system bus of the computer. In the device system, this usually appears as a set of I/O ports connected to the central processing unit. A DMA controller is also linked to this bus, while the floppy disc controller disrupts the central processing unit on level six. This simply means that data transmission is operated in the DMA mode.
