NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     adv -- Advansys ISA/VL/EISA/PCI 8bit SCSI Host adapter driver

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     For one or more ISA or VL cards:
     device isa
     device adv

     In /boot/device.hints:

     For one or more EISA cards:
     device eisa
     device adv

     For one or more PCI cards:
     device pci
     device adv

     For one or more SCSI busses:
     device scbus

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     This driver provides access to the 8bit SCSI bus connected to the
     Advanced Systems Products, Inc.  ASC900, ASC1000, ASC1090, ASC1200,
     ASC3030, ASC3050, and ASC3150 host adapter chips.	The following tables
     list the AdvanSys products using these chips, their bus attachment type,
     maximum sync rate, and the maximum number of commands that can be handled
     by the adapter concurrently.

	   Connectivity Products:

	   1.	This board has been shipped by HP with the 4020i CD-R drive.
		The board has no BIOS so it cannot control a boot device, but
		it can control any secondary SCSI device.
	   2.	This board has been sold by Iomega as a Jaz Jet PCI adapter.
	   3.	This board has been sold by SIIG as the i540 SpeedMaster.
	   4.	This board has been sold by SIIG as the i542 SpeedMaster.
	   5.	This board has been sold by SIIG as the Fast SCSI Pro PCI.

	   Single Channel Products:

	   Adapter	 Bus   Floppy	   MaxSync   Commands
	   ABP542	 ISA	 Yes	    10MHz	240
	   ABP742	 EISA	 Yes	    10MHz	240
	   ABP842	 VL	 Yes	    10MHz	240
	   ABP940	 PCI	 No	    10MHz	240
	   ABP[3]940UA	 PCI	 No	    20MHz	240
	   ABP940U	 PCI	 No	    20MHz	240
	   ABP3960UA	 PCI	 No	    20MHz	240
	   ABP970	 PCI	 No	    10MHz	240
	   ABP970U	 PCI	 No	    20MHz	240

	   Multi Channel Products (Commands are per-channel):

	   Adapter	 Bus   Floppy	   MaxSync   Commands  Channels
	   ABP752	EISA	 Yes	    10MHz	240	 2
	   ABP852	 VL	 Yes	    10MHz	240	 2
	   ABP950	 PCI	 No	    10MHz	240	 2
	   ABP980	 PCI	 No	    10MHz	240	 4
	   ABP980U	 PCI	 No	    20MHz	240	 4
	   ABP[3]980UA	 PCI	 No	    20MHz	16	 4

     Per target configuration performed in the AdvanceWare menu, which is
     accessible at boot, is honored by this driver.  This includes synchronous/asynchronous
 transfers, maximum synchronous negotiation rate, disconnection,
 tagged queueing, and the host adapter's SCSI ID.  The global
     setting for the maximum number of tagged transactions allowed per target
     is not honored as the CAM SCSI system will automatically determine the
     maximum number of tags a device can receive as well as guarantee fair
     resource allocation among devices.
