NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     sbus - introduction to sbus bus support and drivers

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     sbus* at mainbus?
     sbus* at iommu?
     sbus* at xbox?

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     These sbus attachments are specific to the sparc and sparc64

     sbus  is an I/O interconnect bus mostly found in SPARC workstations and
     small to medium server class systems.  It supports both  onboard peripherals
  and extension boards.  The sbus specifications define
the bus protocol
 as well as the electrical and mechanical properties of
the extension

HARDWARE    [Toc]    [Back]

     driver name:
