NetBSD provides support for the Intel 82365SL, Cirrus Logic PD6710 and PD672x PCMCIA controllers.

For the isa(4) attachment a flags value of 1 can be used to force the use of polling instead of interrupts for card events.

The default configuration of the pcic gives each controller 16 kilobytes of memory, to be shared between slots. Some PC Card devices require somewhat more memory than this; it may therefore be necessary to adjust the iomem and iosiz parameters of the pcic devices in the kernel config file to accommodate these cards.


The pcic driver appeared in NetBSD 1.3.
