Discussing about the “Bus”. Let’s elaborate what the term means

Bus: It is a collection of wires through which data is transmitted from one part of a computer to another. Thus, this helps in carrying the electronic signal.

Typically there are three types of buses in connection with 8085 microprocessor.

1) Address Bus 

2) Data Bus

3) Control Bus.

Whereas, Data Bus is Bidirectional, Address Bus is Unidirectional in nature and Control Bus persist with dual nature at times can be bidirectional or other time unidirectional depending completely on the need of Processor.

Hopefully a favorable information for you!
