ESP(4) Device Drivers Manual (sparc64) ESP(4)

espESP NCR 53c94 on-board or SBus SCSI interface

dma* at sbus? (SBus SCSI)
esp* at dma? (two flavours)
esp* at sbus? (depending on model)

The esp is an on-board or SBus SCSI controller based on the NCR 53c94 chip, found on some Sun UltraSPARC workstations.

Bits 0-15
Disable disconnect/reselect for the corresponding target
Bits 16-31
Disable synchronous negotiation for target "[bit - 16]"

The esp device flags may be OR'd together to enable any combination of the features listed above. Targets 4 through 7 typically have disconnect/reselect enabled on the premise that tape devices normally have one of these targets. Tape devices should be allowed to disconnect for the SCSI bus to operate acceptably.
