azalia -- Generic High Definition Audio device driver SYNOPSIS
azalia* at pci? dev ? function ? audio* at audiobus? options AZALIA_DEBUG DESCRIPTION
The azalia device driver is expected to support any PCI device which is compliant to the High Definition Audio Specification 1.0. Known sup- ported controllers are Intel 82801F (ICH6) and Intel 82801G (ICH7). Known supported codecs are Realtek ALC260, ALC880, ALC882, Analog Devices AD1981HD, CMedia CMI9880, Sigmatel STAC9221, and STAC9221D. SEE ALSO
audio(4), pci(4) HISTORY
The azalia device driver appeared in NetBSD 3.0. BUGS
Non-PCM encodings such as Float32 and AC-3 are not supported. There is no way to use 20bit or 24bit precision because of a limitation of the MI audio framework. BSD

hdaudio -- High Definition Audio device driver SYNOPSIS
hdaudio* at pci? dev ? function ? hdafg* at hdaudiobus? audio* at audiobus? options HDAUDIO_DEBUG options HDAUDIO_AFG_DEBUG DESCRIPTION
The hdaudio device driver is expected to support any PCI device which is compliant to the High Definition Audio Specification 1.0. It is a replacement for azalia(4). It was written from scratch following the Intel HD Audio and Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture specifica- tions. The driver consists of two interlinked components, which reflects the hardware design. The hdaudio component interfaces with a PCI/PCIe bus and provides an hdaudiobus(4) onto which different function groups attach. Each function group (e.g. audio, vendor-specific modem) is exported as a separate child device of the hdaudio controller. Audio function groups (a.k.a. audio codec) are exported as hdafg(4) devices. Audio codecs are available from a number of manufacturers and are made up of a number of widgets (e.g. audio mixer, output pin, analog-to- digital converter). The way the widgets are interlinked varies significantly between implementations. The tree of widgets must be parsed and mapped to mixer(4) controls. As part of this process, loops in the inter-codec links must be detected and muted, bi-directional pins must be set up appropriately and the locations of pins determined. Unlike the azalia(4) driver (which tends to generate a large number of unclearly named mixer(4) controls), hdaudio works backwards by starting with a list of desired, consistent and compatible mixer(4) controls and configuring/discovering appropriate widget link routes to fit. By following the published mechanisms for common implementations of widget parsing, it is expected that nearly all High Definition Audio devices will be supported without requiring per-device quirks.

audio(4), mixer(4), pci(4), hdaudioctl(8), HISTORY
The hdaudio device driver appeared in NetBSD 5.1. AUTHORS
The hdaudio driver was written by Jared McNeill <> under contract by Precedence Technologies Ltd <>. The UAA-compliant widget parser is derived from the FreeBSD snd_hda(4) driver. BUGS
The following items are not yet implemented: o Improve power management support when driver is idle o Add support for non-PCM output formats o Handle unsolicited RIRB messages o Modem function groups BSD
