CONFIGURATION         top

       The dsp56k device is a character device with major number 55 and
       minor number 0.

DESCRIPTION         top

       The Motorola DSP56001 is a fully programmable 24-bit digital
       signal processor found in Atari Falcon030-compatible computers.
       The dsp56k special file is used to control the DSP56001, and to
       send and receive data using the bidirectional handshaked host
       port.

       To send a data stream to the signal processor, use write(2) to
       the device, and read(2) to receive processed data.  The data can
       be sent or received in 8, 16, 24, or 32-bit quantities on the
       host side, but will always be seen as 24-bit quantities in the
       DSP56001.

       The following ioctl(2) calls are used to control the dsp56k
       device:

       DSP56K_UPLOAD
              resets the DSP56001 and uploads a program.  The third
              ioctl(2) argument must be a pointer to a struct
              dsp56k_upload with members bin pointing to a DSP56001
              binary program, and len set to the length of the program,
              counted in 24-bit words.

       DSP56K_SET_TX_WSIZE
              sets the transmit word size.  Allowed values are in the
              range 1 to 4, and is the number of bytes that will be sent
              at a time to the DSP56001.  These data quantities will
              either be padded with bytes containing zero, or truncated
              to fit the native 24-bit data format of the DSP56001.

       DSP56K_SET_RX_WSIZE
              sets the receive word size.  Allowed values are in the
              range 1 to 4, and is the number of bytes that will be
              received at a time from the DSP56001.  These data
              quantities will either truncated, or padded with a null
              byte ('\0') to fit the native 24-bit data format of the
              DSP56001.

       DSP56K_HOST_FLAGS
              read and write the host flags.  The host flags are four
              general-purpose bits that can be read by both the hosting
              computer and the DSP56001.  Bits 0 and 1 can be written by
              the host, and bits 2 and 3 can be written by the DSP56001.

              To access the host flags, the third ioctl(2) argument must
              be a pointer to a struct dsp56k_host_flags.  If bit 0 or 1
              is set in the dir member, the corresponding bit in out
              will be written to the host flags.  The state of all host
              flags will be returned in the lower four bits of the
              status member.

       DSP56K_HOST_CMD
              sends a host command.  Allowed values are in the range 0
              to 31, and is a user-defined command handled by the
              program running in the DSP56001.
