NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for spif (netbsd section 4)

SPIF(4) 			   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 			  SPIF(4)

NAME
     spif -- SBus (spiffy) Serial/Parallel Interface

SYNOPSIS
     spif* at sbus? slot ? offset ?		    (sun4c/sun4m/sun4u)
     stty* at spif?				    (sun4c/sun4m/sun4u)
     sbpp* at spif?				    (sun4c/sun4m/sun4u)

DESCRIPTION
     The spif driver provides support for the Sun Serial/Parallel Interface card (Sun part number
     501-1931), which is based on the Cirrus Logic CD180 octal serial controller and the Cirrus
     Logic PPC2 parallel port controller.

     The device minor numbers for this driver are encoded as follows:

	 +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
	 | 7 | 6 | 5 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 1 | 0 |
	 +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+
	   |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
	   |   |   |   |   |   +---+---+---> port number
	   |   |   |   |   |
	   |   |   |   |   +---------------> unused
	   |   |   |   |
	   |   |   |   +-------------------> dial-out (on tty ports)
	   |   |   |
	   |   |   +-----------------------> unused
	   |   |
	   +---+---------------------------> card number

     Up to four cards are supported in the system.

     Each of the serial ports has an 8 byte FIFO for receive and transmit as well as automatic
     hardware (RTS/CTS) flow control.

FILES
     /dev/ttyS[0123][0-7]  Serial ports
     /dev/bppS[0-3]	   Parallel ports

DIAGNOSTICS
     spif%d: ccr timeout  A timeout occurred while writing to one of the CD180 registers.

     stty%d-%d: ring overflow  Incoming characters were discarded because the application in con-
     trol of the device did not read the input fast enough.

SEE ALSO
     intro(4), sbus(4), tty(4)

HISTORY
     The spif adapter was first supported in OpenBSD 2.5.  The driver was ported to NetBSD 3.0.

AUTHORS
     The driver was written by Jason Wright <jason@thought.net>, and is heavily based on the
     magma(4) driver written by Iain Hibbert.

TODO
     The parallel port is not supported yet.

     Dial-out (cua) devices are not yet supported.
