NAME
     stuirda -- Sigmaltel 4116/4220 USB-IrDA bridge support

SYNOPSIS
     stuirda*   at uhub?
     irframe* at uirda?

DESCRIPTION
     The stuirda driver provides support for SigmaTels USB-IrDA bridges that
     nearly follow the bridge specification:

           SigmaTel ST4116
           SigmaTel ST4210
           SigmaTel ST4220

     Access to the IrDA device is through the irframe(4) driver.  Before
     accessing it, a firmware patch must be downloaded.  At the time of writ-
     ing this, it can be found at:
     http://www.sigmatel.com/documents/stir4210_4220_4116_patch_files.tar.gz

     Unpack the archive with

     tar -C /libdata/firmware/stuirda/ -xzf
     stir4210_4220_4116_patch_files.tar.gz

SEE ALSO

HISTORY
     The stuirda driver appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

BUGS
     stuirda needs the firmware for configuration, so it can't be loaded at
     kernel startup time.  As a workaround, you can plug in the USB-IrDA-
     bridge after booting.

NetBSD 6.0                     October 13, 2008                     NetBSD 6.0
