NAME
spic -- Sony Programmable I/O Controller
SYNOPSIS
spic* at acpi? wsmouse* at spic?
DESCRIPTION
Some Sony computers have an I/O controller that handles various interface devices, e.g., the jog dial. The spic driver provides support for some of these. The actual protocol used by the SPIC seems to vary a lot between differ- ent models; this driver has only been tested on the Vaio SRX77. The spic driver handles the jog dial and its associated buttons. They are turned into a wsmouse which can the be accessed in the normal way. The jog dial works as a scroll button, and clicking it generates a click with the "middle" button.
SEE ALSO
