-Documentation for the ESS AudioDrive chips
-
-In 2.4 kernels the SoundBlaster driver not only tries to detect an ESS chip, it
-tries to detect the type of ESS chip too. The correct detection of the chip
-doesn't always succeed however, so unless you use the kernel isapnp facilities
-(and you chip is pnp capable) the default behaviour is 2.0 behaviour which
-means: only detect ES688 and ES1688.
-
-All ESS chips now have a recording level setting. This is a need-to-have for
-people who want to use their ESS for recording sound.
-
-Every chip that's detected as a later-than-es1688 chip has a 6 bits logarithmic
-master volume control.
-
-Every chip that's detected as a ES1887 now has Full Duplex support. Made a
-little testprogram that shows that is works, haven't seen a real program that
-needs this however.
-
-For ESS chips an additional parameter "esstype" can be specified. This controls
-the (auto) detection of the ESS chips. It can have 3 kinds of values:
-
--1 Act like 2.0 kernels: only detect ES688 or ES1688.
-0 Try to auto-detect the chip (may fail for ES1688)
-688 The chip will be treated as ES688
-1688 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ES1688
-1868 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ES1868
-1869 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ES1869
-1788 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ES1788
-1887 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ES1887
-1888 ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ,, ES1888
-
-Because Full Duplex is supported for ES1887 you can specify a second DMA
-channel by specifying module parameter dma16. It can be one of: 0, 1, 3 or 5.
