NAME

lmcLan Media Corporation SSI/T1/DS1/HSSI/DS3 card device

SYNOPSIS

lmc* at pci?

DESCRIPTION

The lmc driver provides support for the Lan Media Corporation SSI, T1/DS1, HSSI, and DS3 PCI WAN adapters based on the DEC 21140 Ethernet chip. The adapters use a DEC 21140 Ethernet chip for the PCI bus interface. Leaving the bus interface chip, the data path goes through a field programmable gate array, where HDLC processing is accomplished. Leaving the FPGA, there are FIFO buffers and the DS1, DS3, and V.35 drive circuitry.
The intent is to provide a synchronous serial link with HDLC framing at speeds of up to 10Mbps (for the SSI card), 52Mbps (for the HSSI card), BNC connectors for 45Mbps operation without a CSU/DSU (DS3 card), and an RJ45 jack for T1/E1 operation without a CSU/DSU (T1/DS1 card).
The card will automatically use HDLC framing and defaults to external clock source. For the DS1 and DS3 cards with built-in CSU/DSU functionality, the clock source is always external (from CSU/DSU). The ability to set cable length is not currently implemented.
Using the sppp(4) driver, you can also use the ppp protocol. In either case, the lmc interface should be configured as a point-to-point link.

DIAGNOSTICS

lmc0: couldn't map interrupt
A fatal initialization error has occurred.
lmc0: couldn't establish interrupt
A fatal initialization error has occurred.
lmc0: enabling keepalive
Cisco HDLC keepalive packets will be transmitted.
lmc0: disabling keepalive
Cisco HDLC keepalive packets will not be transmitted.
lmc0: clock internal
The card is using internal clocking for the line.
lmc0: clock external
The card is using external clocking for the line.
lmc0: asserting DTR and RTS
The card is sending DTR and RTS signals on the line.
lmc0: deasserting DTR and RTS
The card is not sending DTR and RTS signals on the line.
lmc0: Abnormal interrupt
The card received an incomplete request. This may be a sign of a hardware fault.
lmc0: tx_intr: failed to dequeue mbuf?!?
Only available if compiled with LMC_DEBUG.
lmc0: txput: tx not running
Problem from tulip. Only available if compiled with LMC_DEBUG.

AUTHORS

The lmc device driver was written by Michael Graff, and was derived in part from Matt Thomas' de(4) driver. The OpenBSD port and manual page are from Chris Cappuccio. Later enhancements to support the LMC1200 card are based on LMC's Linux driver.
