ADDCOM(4)		  OpenBSD Programmer's Manual		     ADDCOM(4)

     addcom - multiplexing serial communications interface

     addcom0 at isa? port 0x108 irq 5
     com* at addcom?

     The addcom driver provides support for Addonics FlexPort 8/S (and
     probably FlexPort 4/S) boards that multiplex together up to eight (or
     four) EIA RS-232C (CCITT V.28) communications interfaces.

     Each addcom device is the master device for up to eight com devices.  The
     kernel configuration specifies these com devices as slave devices of the
     addcom device, as shown in SYNOPSIS.  The slave ID given for each com
     device determines which bit in the interrupt multiplexing register is
     tested to find interrupts for that device.	 The port specification for
     the addcom device is used to compute the base addresses for the com
     subdevices.  The port for the interrupt multiplexing register is fixed,
     so it is doubtful that more than one addcom can be used in a machine.


     com(4), intro(4), isa(4)

     OpenBSD support for addcom devices first appeared in OpenBSD 3.0.
