NJATA(4)                     Device Drivers Manual                    NJATA(4)

     njata - Workbit NinjaATA-32 CardBus IDE controller driver

     The njata driver provides support for the following Workbit Bus-Master
     CardBus IDE controller chips:

           NinjaATA-32Bi  CardBus / PCMCIA dual mode IDE controller
                          ("DuoATA").  This controller is mainly used for
                          portable drives.  This driver supports the CardBus

           NPATA-32       CardBus IDE controller.  This controller is widely
                          used for CardBus CompactFlash adapters.

     These controllers are capable of bus-mastering for ATA PIO transfer.  The
     njata driver uses the bus-mastering PIO transfer unless transfer buffer
     is unaligned, and significantly reduces CPU usage for PIO-only ATA
     devices compared with usual PIO transfer.

     The optional flags parameter is the "wait" value for ATA transfers.  Some
     combinations of host and device may fail without flags parameter or flags
     0x00.  In this case try adding wait values like flags 0x01 or flags 0x11
     (the wait parameter is composed of two 4-bit values).  Smaller wait
     values should be faster.  Too long waits may cause transfer errors.

     The njata device driver first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.
