      adw - Advansys PCI 16bit SCSI Host adapter driver


      device pci
      device adw
      For one or more SCSI busses:
      device scbus


      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 syn‐
      chronous/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 transac‐
      tions allowed per target is not honored as the CAM SCSI system will auto‐
      matically 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


      The adw driver appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.


      The adw 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
