tcic - Databook TCIC-2 PCMCIA controller driver
insmod tcic.o [pc_debug=n] [tcic_base=n] [ignore=n] [do_scan=n]
[irq_list=i,j,...] [cs_irq=n] [poll_interval=n] [poll_quick=n]
This is the low-level driver for the Databook TCIC-2 PCMCIA host con-
troller family. It is used by Card Services for programming the TCIC-2
chip, and for monitoring card status change events.
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only
available if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A
non-zero value enables debugging.
Sets the base I/O port address of the TCIC-2 chip. The default
Causes the driver to ignore a single socket. Sockets are num-
bered starting at 0. The socket will be left in whatever state
it was already in, so it can be used for cards with point
enablers that do not cooperate with Card Services.
This flag specifies that all free interrupts should be tested to
see if they can be triggered by the PCMCIA controller. The
default is 1 (on).
Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this
driver, if they are otherwise available. The default list is 3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, and 14.
Sets the interrupt line to use for monitoring card status
changes. The default is 0, which means pick any legal interrupt
not already in use. Legal values are 14, 10, 7, 6, 5, 4, and 3.
Sets the card status polling delay, in 1/100 second increments.
If this parameter is set, card status interrupts will be dis-
When a card status change interrupt is received, the TCIC-2 chip
is briefly polled for additional status changes. This parameter
sets the polling delay, in 1/100 second increments. The default
is 5, meaning 0.05 seconds.
Sets the length of a CCLK external clock cycle, in nanoseconds.
The default is 70 ns, corresponding to a standard ISA 14.31818
This man page describes the standalone PCMCIA drivers provided by the
pcmcia-cs source, not the PCMCIA kernel driver support that is included
in the 2.4 (and later) linux kernel. While the kernel PCMCIA code has
the same functionality as the driver side of the standalone PCMCIA
package, there are some important differences. Therefore, some or all
of this documentation might not apply to the kernel drivers.
