umct - Magic Control Technology USB-RS232 converter driver



      umct - Magic Control Technology USB-RS232 converter driver


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


      The umct driver provides support for USB to RS-232 converters based on
      the Magic Control Technology USB-232 design.  These devices support most
      of the standard RS-232 features including baud rates ranging from 300 to
      115200 bits per second.  However, neither hardware nor software flow con‐
      trol seems to be supported.
      Access to devices under this driver is via the ucom(4) framework and
      device nodes.


      The umct driver supports the following adapters:
            Belkin F5U109
            Belkin F5U409
            D-Link DU-H3SP USB BAY Hub
            Magic Control Technology USB-232
            Sitecom USB-232
      tty(4), ucom(4), usb(4)


      The umct driver appeared in FreeBSD 5.2.  It is loosely based on the
      ubsa(4) driver by Alexander Kabaev 〈〉 with documentation
      from Wolfgang Grandeggar 〈〉.


      The umct driver was written by Scott Long 〈〉.


Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
