NAME
     spdmem -- Generic Memory Module Serial Presence Detect

SYNOPSIS
     spdmem* at iic? addr 0x50
     spdmem* at iic? addr 0x51
     spdmem* at iic? addr 0x52
     spdmem* at iic? addr 0x53

DESCRIPTION
     The spdmem driver provides support for generic memory module Serial Presence Detect.  During
     kernel boot it displays module type, and where possible, the size and rated speed of the
     memory module.  Additional information such as bank configuration and width is printed if
     the kernel is booted in verbose mode.

     The Serial Presence Detect data for each memory module is also made accessible to user mode
     via sysctl(8).  An entry for each spdmem device is created under the hw top-level MIB.

SEE ALSO
     iic(4), intro(4)

HISTORY
     The spdmem driver first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     The spdmem driver was written by Nicolas Joly <njoly@pasteur.fr> with additional work by
     Paul Goyette <paul@whooppee.com>.
