SIP(4)                     Kernel Interfaces Manual                     SIP(4)

NAME
     sip -- SiS 900-based Ethernet driver

SYNOPSIS
     sip* at pci? dev ? function ?

     Configuration of PHYs is also necessary.  See mii(4).

DESCRIPTION
     The sip device driver supports Ethernet interfaces based on the Silicon
     Integrated Systems SiS 900, SiS 7016, and National Semiconductor DP83815
     Ethernet chips.

     The SiS 900 is found on many motherboards featuring SiS chipsets, and on
     some embedded systems, and has a built-in PHY.  The SiS 7016 is an older
     version of the chip, which uses an external PHY.

     The National Semiconductor DP83815 is found on NetGear FA-311 and FA-312
     Ethernet boards, and has a built-in PHY.
