SBUS(4)                  BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  SBUS(4)

     sbus -- introduction to SBus bus support

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

     These sbus attachments are specific to the sparc and sparc64 ports.

     sbus is an I/O interconnect bus mostly found in SPARC workstations and
     small to medium server class systems.  It supports both on-board periph-
     erals and extension boards.  The sbus specifications define the bus pro-
     tocol as well as the electrical and mechanical properties of the exten-
     sion slots.

     OpenBSD provides support for the following devices.  Note that not all
     architectures support all devices.
