DESCRIPTION
The zstty driver provides TTY support for Zilog 8530 Dual UART chips. Input and output for each line may set to any baud rate in the range 50 to 38400 (and higher on some machines). The PPS_SYNC option enables code to use the Data Carrier Detect (DCD) signal line for attachment to an external precision clock source (e.g., GPS, CDMA) which generates a Pulse Per Second (PPS) signal. This is used by ntpd(8) to discipline the system clock, and more accurately count/mea- sure time. See options(4) for more discussion.

DIAGNOSTICS
zs0*: fifo overflow The on-chip ``FIFO'' has overflowed and incoming data has been lost. This generally means the machine is not responding to interrupts from the ZS chip fast enough, which can be remedied only by using a lower baud rate. zs0*: ring overflow The software input "ring" has overflowed. This usually means input flow-control is not configured correctly (i.e. incorrect cable wiring).

HISTORY
The zstty driver was derived from the sparc zs driver supplied with 4.4BSD UNIX.
CAVEATS
/dev/ttyB1 on alpha is created by MAKEDEV(8) with minor number 2, so the corresponding device should be zstty2, not zstty1.
BUGS
The old Zilog 8530 chip has a very small FIFO (3 bytes?) and therefore has very strict latency requirements for the interrupt service routine. This limits the usable baud rates on many machines. NetBSD 9.0 September 12, 2017 NetBSD 9.0
