NAME

umct — Magic Control Technology USB-RS232 converter driver

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

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 control seems to be supported.

Access to devices under this driver is via the ucom(4) framework and device nodes.
