adw - Advansys PCI 16bit SCSI Host adapter driver
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
kernel configuration file:
This driver provides access to the 16bit SCSI bus connected to the
Advanced Systems Products, Inc. ASC3550 Ultra, and ASC38C0800 Ultra2,
SCSI Host Adapter chips. Both chips support, synchronous transfers
(20MHz and 40MHz max respectively), 16bit transfers, tagged queueing, and
up to 253 concurrent SCSI transactions.
Per target configuration performed in the AdvanceWare menu, which is
accessible at boot, is honored by this driver. This includes
synchronous/asynchronous transfers, maximum synchronous negotiation rate,
wide transfers, disconnection, 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 adw driver supports SCSI controllers including:
· AdvanSys ABP940UW/ABP3940UW
· AdvanSys ABP950UW
· AdvanSys ABP970UW
· AdvanSys ABP3940U2W
· AdvanSys ABP3950U2W
adv(4), cd(4), da(4), sa(4), scsi(4)
The adw driver appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
The adw driver was ported by Justin T. Gibbs from the Linux driver
written by Bob Frey of Advanced System Products, Inc. Many thanks to
AdvanSys for providing the original driver under a suitable license for
use in FreeBSD.
