eisa -- Introduction to EISA bus machine-independent drivers and support
Machine-dependent; depends on the bus topology and EISA bus interface of
your system. Typical EISA buses are either connected directly to the
main system bus, or via an PCI to EISA bridge. See the intro(4) documen-
tation for your system for details.
NetBSD includes a machine-independent EISA bus subsystem and several
machine-independent EISA device drivers.
Your system may support additional EISA devices. Drivers for EISA
devices not listed here are machine-dependent. Consult your system's
intro(4) for additional information.
NetBSD includes machine-independent EISA drivers, sorted by device type
and driver name:
Disk and tape controllers
cac Compaq array controllers.
mlx Mylex DAC960 and DEC SWXCR RAID controllers.
ahb Adaptec 174x SCSI interfaces.
ahc Adaptec AIC 7770, 274x, and 284x SCSI interfaces.
bha BusLogic BT-74x SCSI interfaces.
dpt DPT SmartCache/SmartRAID III and IV SCSI interfaces.
uha Ultrastor 24f SCSI interfaces.
ep 3Com 3c579 and 3c592 10Mbit Ethernet, and 3c597
10/100Mbit Ethernet interfaces.
fea Digital DEFEA FDDI interfaces.
le Digital DE422 Ethernet interfaces.
tlp Digital DE425 Ethernet interfaces.
Note that most or all EISA devices also have PCI or ISA equivalents.
These are listed in pci(4), isa(4), or isapnp(4), respectively. The man-
ual pages for each individual driver also lists the supported bus vari-
ahb(4), ahc(4), bha(4), cac(4), dpt(4), ep(4), fea(4), intro(4), le(4),
mlx(4), tlp(4), uha(4)
The machine-independent EISA subsystem appeared in NetBSD 1.2.
