NAME
SBus -- introduction to machine-independent SBus bus support and drivers
SYNOPSIS
sbus* at mainbus? sbus* at iommu? sbus* at xbox? These SBus attachments are specific to the NetBSD/sparc and NetBSD/sparc64 ports.
DESCRIPTION
SBus is a I/O interconnect bus mostly found in SPARC workstations and small to medium server class systems. It supports both on-board periph- erals and extension boards. The SBus specifications define the bus pro- tocol as well as the electrical and mechanical properties of the exten- sion slots.
HARDWARE
