NSCLPCSIO(4)               Kernel Interfaces Manual               NSCLPCSIO(4)

     nsclpcsio -- National Semiconductor PC87366 LPC Super I/O

     nsclpcsio* at isa?
     gpio* at nsclpcsio?

     The nsclpcsio driver provides support for the National Semiconductor
     PC87366 LPC Super I/O.  The Super I/O incorporates several logical
     devices, the following ones are supported: GPIO, VLM and TMS.

     The GPIO logical device provides 29 I/O pins which can be accessed
     through the gpio(4) framework.  The gpioctl(8) program allows easy
     manipulation of the pins from userland.

     VLM and TMS logical devices provides hardware monitoring capabilities to
     be used with the envsys(4) API.  The following 17 monitoring sensors are

     The nsclpcsio device appeared in NetBSD 2.0.

     The chip decodes address ranges which are not obvious and cannot be
     controlled by the kernel configuration file (must be set up by the BIOS).
