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 con- troller. 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.

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 control of the device did not read the input fast enough.
