ATTIMER(4)              NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual             ATTIMER(4)

NAME
     attimer -- AT Timer (8253) driver

SYNOPSIS
     attimer*  at acpi?
     attimer0  at isa?

DESCRIPTION
     The attimer driver handles the so-called AT Timer device, initially found
     as chip model 8253.  It is used as the main counter for the clock on the
     i386 port, but also offers control over the pitch of the PC speaker.

     The attimer driver currently only implements the access to the ISA regis-
     ter ``TIMER1'' which controls the pitch of the PC speaker, and should be
     configured along with pcppi(4) to be of any actual use.
