BOCA(4)                    BSD Programmer's Manual                     BOCA(4)

NAME

     boca - multiplexing serial communications interface

SYNOPSIS

     For 4-port BB1004 boards and 8-port BB1008 boards:

     boca0 at isa? port 0x100 irq 5
     com* at boca? slave ?
     or
     pccom* at boca? slave ?

     For 16-port BB2016 boards:

     boca0 at isa? port 0x100 irq 5
     boca1 at isa? port 0x140 irq 5
     com* at boca? slave ?
     or
     pccom* at boca? slave ?

     (The BB2016 is functionally equivalent to two BB1008 boards, and is con-
     figured as such.)

DESCRIPTION

     The boca driver provides support for BOCA Research BB1004, BB1008, and
     BB2016 boards that multiplex together up to four, eight, or sixteen EIA
     RS-232C (CCITT V.28) communications interfaces.

     Each boca device is the master device for up to eight com devices. The
     kernel configuration specifies these com devices as slave devices of the
     boca device, as shown in SYNOPSIS. The slave ID given for each com device
     determines which bit in the interrupt multiplexing register is tested to
     find interrupts for that device. The port specification for the boca dev-
     ice is used to compute the base addresses for the com subdevices and the
     port for the interrupt multiplexing register.

HISTORY

     The boca driver was written by Charles Hannum, based on the ast driver
     and source code from David Muir Sharnoff. David wishes to acknowledge the
     assistance of Jason Venner in determining how to use the BOCA boards.
