hme -- Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Ethernet interfaces device driver
hme* at pci? dev ? function ? hme* at sbus? slot ? offset ?
The hme driver supports Sun Microelectronics STP2002-STQ Fast Ethernet interfaces.
The hme driver supports the on-board Ethernet interfaces of many Sun UltraSPARC workstation and server models. Cards supported by the hme driver include: Sun PCI SunSwift Adapter (``SUNW,hme'') Sun SBus SunSwift Adapter (``hme'' and ``SUNW,hme'') Sun PCI Sun100BaseT Adapter 2.0 (``SUNW,hme'') Sun SBus Sun100BaseT 2.0 (``SUNW,hme'') Sun PCI Quad FastEthernet Controller (``SUNW,qfe'') Sun SBus Quad FastEthernet Controller (``SUNW,qfe'') The STP2002 family supports hardware checksumming to assist in computing IPv4 TCP/UDP checksums. The hme driver supports this feature of the chip. See ifconfig(8) for information on how to enable this feature.

The hme driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.
The hme driver was written by Paul Kranenburg <>.
Connecting a MII transceiver on those cards that support it will cause the RJ45 connector to be detected as PHY instance 1, instead of the default instance 0. NetBSD 10.99 June 23, 2012 NetBSD 10.99
