NAME
     adw -- Advansys PCI 16bit SCSI Host adapter driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device pci
	   device scbus
	   device adw

DESCRIPTION
     This driver provides access to the	16bit SCSI bus connected to the
     Advanced Systems Products,	Inc.  ASC3550 Ultra, and ASC38C0800 Ultra2,
     SCSI Host Adapter chips.  Both chips support, synchronous transfers
     (20MHz and	40MHz max respectively), 16bit transfers, tagged queueing, and
     up	to 253 concurrent SCSI transactions.

     Per target	configuration performed	in the AdvanceWare menu, which is
     accessible	at boot, is honored by this driver.  This includes synchro-
     nous/asynchronous transfers, maximum synchronous negotiation rate,	wide
     transfers,	disconnection, tagged queueing,	and the	host adapter's SCSI
     ID.  The global setting for the maximum number of tagged transactions
     allowed per target	is not honored as the CAM SCSI system will automati-
     cally determine the maximum number	of tags	a device can receive as	well
     as	guarantee fair resource	allocation among devices.

HARDWARE
     The adw driver supports SCSI controllers including:

     +o	 AdvanSys ABP940UW/ABP3940UW
     +o	 AdvanSys ABP950UW
     +o	 AdvanSys ABP970UW
     +o	 AdvanSys ABP3940U2W
     +o	 AdvanSys ABP3950U2W

     The adw driver appeared in	FreeBSD	3.0.

AUTHORS
     The adw driver was	ported by Justin T. Gibbs from the Linux driver	writ-
     ten by Bob	Frey of	Advanced System	Products, Inc.	Many thanks to Advan-
