PODULEBUS(4)                 Device Drivers Manual                PODULEBUS(4)

     podulebus - Acorn Expansion Card bus driver

     podulebus0 at root (NetBSD/acorn32)

     The podulebus driver handles the expansion-card interface in Archimedes
     machines and their successors.  This includes conventional expansion
     cards, mini expansion cards (as introduced in the A3000), network
     expansion cards (as introduced in the A3020), DEBI expansion cards (as
     introduced in the Risc PC), and Mk II network cards (also introduced in
     the Risc PC).  Drivers for individual cards attach as children of the
     podulebus device.

     NetBSD includes several machine-independent expansion card device
     drivers.  There are also some device drivers which are specific to

     The following devices are supported by NetBSD.
