TCIC(4)                    Kernel Interfaces Manual                    TCIC(4)



NAME
       tcic - Databook TCIC-2 PCMCIA controller driver

SYNOPSIS
       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]
       [cycle_time=n]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

PARAMETERS
       pc_debug=n
              Selects  the  PCMCIA  debugging  level.   This parameter is only
              available if the module is compiled with debugging  enabled.   A
              non-zero value enables debugging.

       tcic_base=n
              Sets  the base I/O port address of the TCIC-2 chip.  The default
              is 0x240.

       ignore=n
              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.

       do_scan=n
              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).

       irq_list=i,j,...
              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.

       cs_irq=n
              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.

       poll_interval=n
              Sets  the card status polling delay, in 1/100 second increments.
              If this parameter is set, card status interrupts  will  be  dis-
              abled.

       poll_quick=n
              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.

       cycle_time=n
              Sets the length of a CCLK external clock cycle, in  nanoseconds.
              The  default  is 70 ns, corresponding to a standard ISA 14.31818
              MHz clock.

WARNING
       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.
