Contributing to NetBSD: Hardware
If you have hardware you could donate or loan to a NetBSD developer, or
are interested in writing a driver and just need the hardware, this is
the place to check. Each entry has a contact email address.
<www@NetBSD.org>, so we can update this page.
If you have anything you would like to add to this list, please contact us.
If your company would like to assist the NetBSD project, please see the appropriate page.
There is also a list of other donations
- PCI Video cards for Sun SPARC wanted
- Sun SuperSPARC and HyperSPARC MBUS modules
- MCA cards and documentation wanted
- SGI o2 RAM wanted
- IBM POWERstation 320, model 7012 RS/6000
- DNSES EISA Synchronous Communications Controller
- Compaq NetFlex-2 ENET-TR card
- Intergraph Powerstorm 4D50T graphics card
- SunPCi coprocessor card
Developers looking for machines
<rkujawa@NetBSD.org> would like to extend
NetBSD/amiga to support AmigaCD32-specific hardware (CD-ROM drive, Akiko,
EEPROM, etc.). AmigaCD32 with 68030-based expansion is needed for this cause,
due to MMU requirement. DCE SX-32 Pro is probably the only existing 68030 card
for AmigaCD32, machines without MMU are not interesting.
<macallan@NetBSD.org> is interested in an
Old World Macintosh SMP machine, such as a PowerMac 9500/180MP to test macppc
SMP support on.
Developers looking for other hardware
<macallan@NetBSD.org> is interested in any PCI
third party video card with FCode for use in Suns that we might be able to find documentation on.
<macallan@NetBSD.org> is interested in
SuperSPARC and HyperSPARC MBUS modules that have caches. Not interested in
If you have some MCA (Micro-Channel Architecture, also referred to as only MC)
cards in your junk pile you'd be willing to give away, please contact
He is collecting them, so that drivers for the cards could be written,
tested and added to the NetBSD tree. More information (as well as
list of most wanted hardware) is at the
NetBSD on IBM PS/2 page.
<sevan@NetBSD.org> is looking for donations of additional
RAM for an SGI o2 workstation to allow for regular runs of the ATF test suite
and pkgsrc testing. Current system at hand has a mere 64MB which is insufficient
for performing most tasks without swapping.
Hardware available to anyone who would like to write support
<email@example.com> would be willing to give an IBM
POWERstation 320, model 7012 RS/6000, to anyone who would like to port NetBSD
to it. It was reported to be fully functional up until the hard drive crashed.
This system is located near the San Francisco Bay area.
<firstname.lastname@example.org> has a
DNSES EISA Synchronous Communications Controller
with minimal docs (i.e. pinout and install guide)
for anyone who is willing to do a port for it.
It supports V.35@64kb V.24/V.email@example.com V.11/V.36@E1/T1 and V.10@64kb.
<firstname.lastname@example.org> has a Compaq
NetFlex-2 ENET-TR card, which is an EISA card that combines ethernet and
token ring interfaces. He is happy to send it to anybody who is keen on
writing EISA drivers. 
<email@example.com> has a Intergraph Powerstorm 4D50T
graphics card available for any developer wishing to add support for it. The
card comes from a Digital Personal Workstation (Miata). 
Daniel van Eeden
<firstname.lastname@example.org> also has a SunPCi card from
Sun Microsystems which is available to anyone who wants to write NetBSD guest
and/or host support. It's the first PCI version (P/N X1131A-64.2) with AMD
K6-2 CPU. 
Other Hardware available
<email@example.com> has a Mac Quadra 840av
with 48MB of RAM, 500MB hard drive and a 2x CD-ROM drive that he would like to
donate for development on NetBSD/mac68k.
He also has the original Mac 16" monitor as well. The items are located in
