EN(4)                  FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  EN(4)

NAME
     en - device driver for Midway-based ATM interfaces

SYNOPSIS
     device en
     device atm
     device utopia

DESCRIPTION
     The en device driver supports Midway-based ATM interfaces including the
     Efficient Networks, Inc. ENI-155 and Adaptec ANA-59x0.  Midway is an AAL5
     SAR (Segmentation and Reassembly) chip.

     For configuring the card for IP see natmip(4).

     The following sysctls are recognized by the driver additionally to those
     handled by utopia(4):

     hw.atm.enX.istats
          Contains an array of uint32_t with internal driver statistics.

     hw.atm.enX.debug
          This is a bit map of debugging options.  This variable is only
          available when the driver is compiled with debugging support.

     The driver supports the media options sdh, noscramb and unassigned (see
     utopia(4) ).

DIAGNOSTICS
     en0 <Efficient Networks ENI-155p> rev 0 int a irq 5 on pci0:16
     en0: ATM midway v0, board IDs 6.0, Utopia (pipelined), 512KB on-board RAM
     en0: maximum DMA burst length = 64 bytes
     en0: 7 32KB receive buffers, 8 32KB transmit buffers allocated

CAVEATS
     The driver extensively uses DMA on PCI.  The first generation PCI
     chipsets do not work or exhibit poor performance.

AUTHORS
     Chuck Cranor of Washington University implemented EN driver in 1996 for
     NetBSD.
