RC(4)                    BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                    RC(4)

     rc -- RISCom/8 multiport card

     device isa
     device rc

     The RISCom/8 is an eight port ISA RS-232C communications multiplexer with
     a built in RISC processor.  It uses a block of sixteen I/O ports in the
     range 0x200 to 0x3f0 selectable by on-board switches or jumpers.  The
     block must be aligned on a sixteen port boundary.  The jumper-selectable
     hardware interrupt level may be set to be detected during system initial-
     ization using settings found in the /boot/device.hints file.

     This driver is mostly based on the Cirrus Logic CL-CD180 driver.

     The rc driver provides support for the SDL Communications RISCom/8

     The following driver specific error messages may be reported:

     rc%d channel%d: interrupt-level buffer overflow  An internal buffer over-
     flow error has occurred on the listed channel.  The rc driver will need
     to be reloaded to correct this.

     rc%d: Bad char chan %d  The channel has obtained a bad set of characters.

     rc%d: Got extra chars chan %d  The rc driver got more characters than
     expected on the channel shown.

     rc%d: data mismatch chan %d ptr %d (%d != %d)  Data sent from channel %d
     to the rx buffer was different then expected.

     rc%d: channel %d command timeout, rc.c line: %d  A command timeout has
     occurred on the channel, the src/sys/dev/rc/rc.c file can be consulted
     for more information.

     tty(1), ttyname(3), sio(4), tty(4), device.hints(5), comcontrol(8),
     getty(8), mutex(9), splx(9)


     The rc driver first appeared in FreeBSD 2.0.5.  This manual page first
     appeared in FreeBSD 5.3.

     This manual page was written by Tom Rhodes <trhodesATFreeBSD.org>.

     The rc driver code still uses the spl(9) functions.  These should be
     replaced by mutex(9) functions.

     The various ttyld_*() functions should be documented.
