       sane-sm3840 - SANE backend for Microtek scanners with SCAN08 USB chip

       The  sane-sm3840	 library  implements  a SANE (Scanner Access Now Easy)
       backend that provides access to some Microtek scanners with the	SCAN08
       USB chip.

       There  exist  backends  for  Microtek  scanners	with SCSI command set.
       Refer to sane-microtek(5) and sane-microtek2(5) for details.

       There also exists a Microtek 3600 series driver, see sane-sm3600(5) for

       At  present,  the  following scanners are known positively to work with
       this backend:

	      Vendor	 Product ID:	 Remark:
	      --------	 --------------	 -----------
	      Microtek	 ScanMaker 3840	 All modes OK
	      Microtek	 ScanMaker 4800	 All modes OK

       If you own a Microtek scanner with the SCAN08 chip other than the  ones
       listed  above,  it may or may not work with SANE.  Feel free to contact
       the backend author ( to report results with scanners
       not on the list.

       The following options are supported by the sm3840-driver:

       --mode color|gray
       Color or grayscale mode.

       --resolution 150|300|600|1200
       Pixels per inch for scans.

       --depth 8|16
       Note that the least significant bits of 16bpp mode may be noise.

       --brightness 1..4096
       Higher numbers increase brightness of returned image.

       --contrast 0.1..9.9
       Larger numbers decrease contrast of returned image.

       --lamp-timeout 1..15
       Time in minutes until the lamp is turned off after a scan.

       This backend does not support a configuration file right now.

	      The static library implementing this backend.

	      The shared library implementing this backend (present on systems
	      that support dynamic loading).

	      If the library was compiled with	debug  support	enabled,  this
	      environment  variable controls the debug level for this backend.
	      E.g., a value of 128 requests all debug output  to  be  printed.
	      Smaller levels reduce verbosity. To see error messages on stderr
	      set SANE_DEBUG_SM3840 to 1.
