BHND(4)                FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                BHND(4)

NAME
     bhnd - Broadcom Home Networking Division interconnect bus

SYNOPSIS
     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device bhnd

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

           bhnd_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The bhnd driver provides a unified kernel bus interface to the on-chip
     interconnects used in Broadcom Home Networking Division (HND) devices.

     The Broadcom HND device family consists of SoCs (System On a Chip) and
     host-connected chipsets based on a common library of Broadcom IP cores
     connected via an internal hardware bus architecture.  Drivers for these
     cores are implemented against the unified bhnd interface.

     The Sonic Inc. Silicon Backplane used in earlier HND devices is supported
     by the siba(4) BHND driver.

     The ARM AMBA-based interconnect used in later HND devices is supported by
     the bcma(4) BHND driver.

HISTORY
     The bhnd device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 11.0.
