BCMA(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       BCMA(4)

NAME
     bcma -- Broadcom AMBA Backplane driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, add the following lines to	the
     kernel configuration file:

	   device bhnd
	   device bcma

     To	load the driver	as a module at boot, add this line to loader.conf(5):

	   bcma_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The bcma driver provides bhnd(4) support for devices using	the ARM	AMBA-
     based backplane architecture found	in later Broadcom Home Networking
     Division's	network	chipsets and embedded systems.

     A common interconnect connects all	of the backplane's functional blocks.
     These functional blocks, known as cores, use the ARM AMBA AXI or APB
     interface to communicate with devices attached to the interconnect.

     The IP cores used in siba(4) devices were adapted by Broadcom for compat-
     ibility with the new interconnect.

SEE ALSO
     bhnd(4), intro(4),	siba(4)

HISTORY
     The bcma device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 11.0.

AUTHORS
     The bcma driver was written by Landon Fuller <landonf@FreeBSD.org>.
