NAME

       sane-niash - SANE backend for scanners based on the NIASH chipset.

DESCRIPTION

       The sane-niash implements a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy) backend that
       provides access to NIASH chipset based scanners. This backend will  try
       to support the following models:

       MANUFACTURER:    MODEL:          USB ID:
       ---------------  ----------------  ---------
       Agfa             Snapscan Touch    06BD-0100 (1)(a)
       Trust            Office Scan 19200 047B-1000 (1)(a)
       Hewlett-Packard  Scanjet 3300c     03F0-0205 (1)(a)(b)
       Hewlett-Packard  Scanjet 3400c     03F0-0405 (2)(b)
       Hewlett-Packard  Scanjet 4300c     03F0-0305 (2)(a)
       Silitek          ScanJet 4300c     047B-1002 (2)(b)

       ASIC: (1) - NIASH00012/00013/00014 / (2) - NIASH00019
       ANALOG FRONT-END: (a) - ESIC ES8100QA / (b) - WM8143-12

CONFIGURATION

       The  niash.conf  file is meant for future configuration options.  Empty
       lines and lines starting with a hash mark (#) are ignored. Currently no
       configuration options exist.

FILES

       /usr/lib/sane/libsane-niash.a
              The static library implementing this backend.

       /usr/lib/sane/libsane-niash.so
              The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
              that support dynamic loading).

CAVEATS

       If you use a
       Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 3400c or
       Hewlett-Packard Scanjet 4300c
       together with Linux kernel  2.6,  kernel  version  2.6.8  or  newer  is
       necessary.

ENVIRONMENT

       SANE_DEBUG_NIASH
              If  the  library  was  compiled with debug support enabled, this
              environment variable controls the debug level for this  backend.
              Higher debug levels increase the verbosity of the output.

              Example: export SANE_DEBUG_NIASH=255
