ATH_HAL(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		    ATH_HAL(4)

NAME
     ath_hal --	Atheros	Hardware Access	Layer (HAL)

SYNOPSIS
     device ath_hal
     options AH_SUPPORT_AR5416
     or
     device ath_ar5210
     device ath_ar5211
     device ath_ar5212
     device ath_rf2413
     device ath_rf2417
     device ath_rf2425
     device ath_rf5111
     device ath_rf5112
     device ath_rf5413
     device ath_ar5416
     device ath_ar9130
     device ath_ar9160
     device ath_ar9280
     device ath_ar9285
     device ath_ar9287
     options AH_SUPPORT_AR5416

DESCRIPTION
     The hal provides hardware support for wireless network adapters based on
     the Atheros AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, AR5213, AR2413, AR2417, AR2425,
     AR5413, AR5416, AR5418, AR5424, AR9160, AR9220, AR9280, AR9285 and	AR9287
     chips (and	companion RF/baseband parts).  This code is part of the	ath(4)
     driver but	configured separately to allow fine-grained control over the
     set of chips supported.  Selecting	ath_hal	enables	support	for all	PCI
     and Cardbus devices.  Note	this includes AR5416, AR5418, AR9130, AR9160,
     AR9220, AR9280, AR9285 and	AR9287 devices and must	be accompanied by the
     AH_SUPPORT_AR5416 option to enable	the extended hardware descriptor for-
     mat used by AR5416	and later devices.

     Some devices come in Cardbus/MiniPCI/PCI format.  Others (for example
     AR2413, AR2427, AR5418, AR9280, AR9285, AR9287) come in PCIe, Mini-PCIe
     or	ExpressCard format.

     Historically this code has	been released in a binary-only form and	pack-
     aged as a separate	module.	 With the release of source code for the hal
     this is no	longer true and	the code is tightly integrated with the
     driver.
