BHND(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       BHND(4)

NAME
     bhnd -- Broadcom Home Networking Division interconnect bus

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

	   device bhnd

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

	   bhnd_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The bhnd driver provides a	unified	kernel bus interface to	the on-chip
     interconnects used	in Broadcom Home Networking Division (HND) devices.

     The Broadcom HND device family consists of	SoCs (System On	a Chip)	and
     host-connected chipsets based on a	common library of Broadcom IP cores
     connected via an internal hardware	bus architecture.  Drivers for these
     cores are implemented against the unified bhnd interface.

     The Sonic Inc. Silicon Backplane used in earlier HND devices is supported
     by	the siba(4) BHND driver.

     The ARM AMBA-based	interconnect used in later HND devices is supported by
     the bcma(4) BHND driver.

SEE ALSO
     bcma(4), bhndb(4),	intro(4), siba(4)

HISTORY
     The bhnd device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 11.0.

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