PODULEBUS(4)            NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual           PODULEBUS(4)

NAME
     podulebus -- Acorn Expansion Card bus driver

SYNOPSIS
     podulebus0 at ioc0 bank 4
     (NetBSD/acorn26)
     podulebus0 at root
     (NetBSD/acorn32)

DESCRIPTION
     The podulebus driver handles the expansion-card interface in Archimedes
     machines and their successors.  This includes conventional expansion
     cards, mini expansion cards (as introduced in the A3000), network expan-
     sion cards (as introduced in the A3020), DEBI expansion cards (as intro-
     duced in the Risc PC), and Mk II network cards (also introduced in the
     Risc PC).  Drivers for individual cards attach as children of the
     podulebus device.

     NetBSD includes several machine-independent expansion card device driv-
     ers.  There are also some device drivers which are specific to
     NetBSD/acorn26 or NetBSD/acorn32.
