DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The machine-independent PCMCIA subsystem provides support for PC-Card
     devices defined by the Personal Computer Memory Card International Assocation
 (PCMCIA).  The PCMCIA bus supports insertion and removal of cards
     while a system is powered-on (ie, dynamic reconfiguration).  The socket
     must be powered-off when a card is not present.  To the user, this
     appears as though the socket is "hot" during insertion and removal

     A PCMCIA controller interfaces the PCMCIA bus with the ISA or PCI busses
     on the host system.  The controller is responsible for detecting and
     enabling devices and for allocating and mapping resources such as memory
     and interrupts to devices on the PCMCIA bus.

     Each device has a table called the Card Information Structure (CIS) which
     contains configuration information.  The tuples in the CIS are used by
     the controller to uniquely identify the device.  Additional information
     may be present in the CIS, such as the ethernet MAC address, that can be
     accessed and utilised within a device driver.

     Devices on the PCMCIA bus are uniquely identified by a 32-bit manufacturer
 ID and a 32-bit product ID.  Additionally, devices can perform multiple
 functions (such a ethernet and modem) and these functions are identified
 by a function ID.

     PCMCIA devices do not support DMA, however memory on the device can be
     mapped into the address space of the host.

DATA TYPES    [Toc]    [Back]

     Drivers attached to the PCMCIA bus will make use of the following data

     struct pcmcia_card
              Devices (cards) have their identity recorded in this structure.
              It contains the following members:

                      char            *cis1_info[4];
                      int32_t         manufacturer;

     struct pcmcia_function
              Identifies the function of the devices.  A device can have multiple
 functions.  Consider it an opaque type for identifying a
              particular function of a device.

     struct pcmcia_config_entry
              Contains information about the resources requested by the
              device.  It contains the following members:

                      struct {
                              u_long  length;
                              u_long  start;
                      } iospace[4];
                      u_int16_t       irqmask;
                      int             num_memspace;
                      struct {
                              u_long  length;
                              u_long  cardaddr;
                              u_long  hostaddr;
                      }               memspace[2];
                      int             maxtwins;
                      SIMPLEQ_ENTRY(pcmcia_config_entry) cfe_list;

     struct pcmcia_tuple
              A handle for identifying an entry in the CIS.

     struct pcmcia_io_handle
              A handle for mapping and allocating I/O address spaces.  It contains
 the tag and handle for accessing the bus-space.

     struct pcmcia_mem_handle
              A handle for mapping and allocating memory address spaces.  It
              contains the tag and handle for accessing the bus-space.

     struct pcmcia_attach_args
              A structure used to inform the driver of the device properties.
              It contains the following members:

                      int32_t                 manufacturer;
                      int32_t                 product;
                      struct pcmcia_card      *card;
                      struct pcmcia_function  *pf;

              device function pf.

     pcmcia_io_alloc(pf, start, size, align, pciop)
              Request I/O space for device function pf at address start of

     pcmcia_mem_map(pf, width, card_addr, size, pcmhp, offsetp, windowp)
              Map device memory for device function pf to the memory space
              with handle pcmhp.  The address of the device memory starts at
              card_addr and is size size.  The width of data access is specified
 by width.  Valid values for the width are:

              PCMCIA_WIDTH_MEM8   Force 8-bit memory width.

              PCMCIA_WIDTH_MEM16  Force 16-bit memory width.

              A handle for the mapped memory window is returned in windowp and
              a bus-space offset into the memory window is returned in

 of the interrupt is specified by level.  When the interrupt
 occurs the function handler is called with argument arg.
              The return value is a handle for the interrupt handler.
              pcmcia_intr_establish() returns an opaque handle to an event
              descriptor if it succeeds, and returns NULL on failure.

     pcmcia_intr_disestablish(pf, ih)
              Dis-establish the interrupt handler for device function pf with
              handle ih.  The handle was returned from

     pcmcia_cis_read_1(tuple, index)

     pcmcia_scan_cis(dev, func, arg)
              Scan the CIS for device dev.  For each tuple in the CIS, function
 func is called with the tuple and the argument arg.  func
              should return 0 if the tuple it was called with is the one it
              was looking for, or 1 otherwise.


     During autoconfiguration, a PCMCIA driver will receive a pointer to
     struct pcmcia_attach_args describing the device attached to the PCMCIA
     bus.  Drivers match the device using the manufacturer and product members.

     During the driver attach step, drivers will use the pcmcia function pf.
     The driver should traverse the list of config entries searching for a
     useful configuration.  This config entry is passed to
     pcmcia_function_init() to initialise the machine-independent interface.
     I/O and memory resources should be initialised using pcmcia_io_alloc()
     and pcmcia_mem_alloc() using the specified resources in the config entry.
     These resources can then be mapped into processor bus space using
     pcmcia_io_map() and pcmcia_mem_map() respectively.  Upon successful allocation
 of resources, power can be applied to the device with
     pcmcia_function_enable() so that device-specific interrogation can be
     performed.  Finally, power should be removed from the device using

     Since PCMCIA devices support dynamic configuration, drivers should make
     use of powerhook_establish(9).  Power can be applied and the interrupt
     handler should be established through this interface.

DMA SUPPORT    [Toc]    [Back]

     PCMCIA devices do not support DMA.

CODE REFERENCES    [Toc]    [Back]

     This section describes places within the NetBSD source tree where actual
     code implementing or utilising the machine-independent PCMCIA subsystem
     can be found.  All pathnames are relative to /usr/src.

     The PCMCIA subsystem itself is implemented within the file
     sys/dev/pcmcia/pcmcia.c.  The database of known devices exists within the
     file sys/dev/pcmcia/pcmciadevs_data.h and is generated automatically from
     the file sys/dev/pcmcia/pcmciadevs.  New manufacturer and product identifiers
 should be added to this file.  The database can be regenerated
     using the Makefile sys/dev/pcmcia/Makefile.pcmciadevs.
