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

       /usr/lib/arch_triplet/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
