I've seen that technique used to address a device, such as off-chip
EEPROM--basically, rather than employ a separate latch for the address
or map the device into memory space, a block of I/O addresses are used
to directly access the device. It seems wasteful--and, as the code
points out, rather inflexible, as the 8085 only has the
immediate-operand IN and OUT instructions, but hey, it saves a couple of
So, the first thing that I'd look for is what devices on the board can
be accessed in this fashion.
