ADV(4)                 FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                 ADV(4)

     adv -- Advansys ISA/VL/EISA/PCI 8bit SCSI Host adapter driver

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device scbus
           device adv

           For one or more EISA cards:
           device eisa

           For one or more VL/ISA cards:
           device isa

           In /boot/device.hints:

           For one or more PCI cards:
           device pci

     This driver provides access to the 8bit SCSI bus connected to the
     Advanced Systems Products, Inc.  ASC900, ASC1000, ASC1090, ASC1200,
     ASC3030, ASC3050, and ASC3150 host adapter chips.  The following tables
     list the AdvanSys products using these chips, their bus attachment type,
     maximum sync rate, and the maximum number of commands that can be handled
     by the adapter concurrently.

           1.   This board has been shipped by HP with the 4020i CD-R drive.
                The board has no BIOS so it cannot control a boot device, but
                it can control any secondary SCSI device.
           2.   This board has been sold by Iomega as a Jaz Jet PCI adapter.
           3.   This board has been sold by SIIG as the i540 SpeedMaster.
           4.   This board has been sold by SIIG as the i542 SpeedMaster.
           5.   This board has been sold by SIIG as the Fast SCSI Pro PCI.

     Per target configuration performed in the AdvanceWare menu, which is
     accessible at boot, is honored by this driver.  This includes synchro-
     nous/asynchronous transfers, maximum synchronous negotiation rate, dis-
     connection, tagged queueing, and the host adapter's SCSI ID.  The global
     setting for the maximum number of tagged transactions allowed per target
     is not honored as the CAM SCSI system will automatically determine the
     maximum number of tags a device can receive as well as guarantee fair
     resource allocation among devices.

     The adv driver supports the following SCSI controllers:

     o   AdvanSys ABP510/5150
     o   AdvanSys ABP5140

     The adv driver appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.

     The adv driver was ported by Justin T. Gibbs from the Linux driver writ-
     ten by Bob Frey of Advanced System Products, Inc.  Many thanks to Advan-
     Sys for providing the original driver under a suitable license for use in

FreeBSD 6.2                     August 8, 2004                     FreeBSD 6.2
