hwa1480_fw (4D)

Name

wusb_df, hwa1480_fw - WUSB firmware download driver and firmware module for Intel i1480 chipset

Description

The wusb_df driver is a Solaris USB Architecture (USBA) compliant client driver that is used to download firmware for Host Wire Adapter (HWA) dongles that use Intel i1480 chipsets.

Currently, the wusb_df driver can only download driver for Intel i1480 based HWA dongles. The hwa1480_fw is a miscellaneous module which is transformed from Intel's firmware binary version RC1.3PA2-20070828. wusb_df reads firmware data from hwa1480_fw module and downloads it to HWA hardware.

Users can use elfwrap(1) to transform new firmware binary. Users must use the same name as hwa1480_fw, since wusb_df only recognizes this symbol.
