      ubsa - USB support for Belkin serial adapters


      To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
      kernel configuration file:
            device ubsa
            device ucom
      Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
      following line in loader.conf(5):


      The ubsa driver provides support for the USB-to-RS232 Bridge chip used by
      a variety of serial adapters from Belkin and other vendors.
      The device is accessed through the ucom(4) driver which makes it behave
      like a tty(4).


      The ubsa driver supports the following adapters:
            AnyData ADU-E100A (no EV-DO mode support)
            Belkin F5U103
            Belkin F5U120
            e-Tek Labs Kwik232
            GoHubs GoCOM232
            Huawei Technologies Mobile card (3G)
            Novatel Wireless Merlin U740 (only basic modem port supported)
            Option Globetrotter 3G (aka Vodafone Mobile Connect Card 3G)
            Option Globetrotter 3G Quad
            Option Globetrotter 3G Fusion (no WLAN support, only basic 3G modem
            Option Globetrotter 3G Fusion Quad (no WLAN support)
            Peracom single port serial adapter
      The supported 3G cards provide the necessary modem port for ppp, pppd, or
      mpd connections; other functions of these cards (diagnostic port, SIM
      toolkit port, WLAN) are not supported.
      tty(4), ucom(4), usb(4)


      The ubsa driver appeared in FreeBSD 5.0.  The uplcom(4) manual page was
      adopted from NetBSD by Tom Rhodes 〈〉 in April 2002 and
      modified for the ubsa driver by Alexander Kabaev 〈〉 in
      October 2002.


      The ubsa driver was written by Alexander Kabaev 〈〉.
