NAME


pcic - Intel i82365SL PC Card Interface Controller

DESCRIPTION


The Intel i82365SL PC Card interface controller provides one or more
PCMCIA PC card sockets. The pcic driver implements a PCMCIA bus nexus
driver.


The driver provides basic support for the Intel 82365SL and compatible
chips. Tested chips are:

o Intel -- 82365SL.

o Cirrus Logic -- PD6710/PD6720/PD6722.

o Vadem -- VG365/VG465/VG468/VG469.

o Toshiba -- PCIC and ToPIC

o Ricoh -- RF5C366/RL5C466/RL5C475/RL5C476/RL5C477/RL5C478.

o 02Micro -- OZ6912/6972.

o Texas Instruments --
PCI1130/PCI1131/PCI1031/PCI1221/PCI1225/PCI1520/PCI
1410/PCI1420/PCI4520/PCI7510/PCI7621.


While most systems using one of the above chips will work, some systems
are not supported due to hardware designs options that may not be
software detectable.


Direct access to the PCMCIA hardware is not supported. All device access
must be through the DDI.

CONFIGURATION


Configuration of PC Card interface controllers are automatically done in
the system by leveraging ACPI on x86 (or OBP on SPARC). Configuration
includes allocation of device memory, I/O ports, CardBus subordinary bus
number and interrupts. There is no user-interference required. Note
that the controller may not work when ACPI is disabled.


There is one driver configuration property defined in the pcic.conf file:

interrupt-priorities=6;
This property must be defined and must be
below 10.
