DESCRIPTION
The lm driver provides support for the National Semiconductor LM series hardware monitors and register compatible chips to be used with the envsys(4) API. The original LM78 hardware monitor supports 11 sensors: Sensor Units Typical Use IN0 uV DC Core voltage IN1 uV DC unknown IN2 uV DC +3.3V IN3 uV DC +5V IN4 uV DC +12V IN5 uV DC -12V IN6 uV DC -5V Temp uK Motherboard Temperature Fan0 RPM Fan Fan1 RPM Chassis Fan Fan2 RPM Fan For other devices, sensors' names and numbers will be different. Due to hardware limitations, fresh sensor data is only available every 2 seconds.
HARDWARE
Chips supported by the lm driver include: National Semiconductor LM78, LM78-J, LM79, and LM81. Nuvoton NCT5104D, NCT6775F, NCT6776F, NCT6102D, NCT6104D, NCT6106D, NCT6779D, NCT6791D, NCT6792D, NCT6793D, NCT6795D, and NCT6796D. Winbond W83627HF*, W83627THF*, W83627EHF*, W83627DHG*, W83637HF*, W83697HF*, W83781D, W83782D*, W83783S*, W83791D*, W83791SD, and W83792D. ASUS AS99127F. For most of the Winbond chips (identified with a * above), the flags con- figuration option can be specified to select the type of temperature sen- sor: flags Sensor Type 0 Thermistor diode (Power-On default) 1 Pentium-II diode 2 2N3904 Bipolar 4 Thermistor diode

HISTORY
The lm device appeared in NetBSD 1.5.
CAVEATS
Some vendors connect these chips to non-standard thermal diodes and resistors. This will result in bogus sensor values.
BUGS
Interrupt support is unimplemented. There are currently no known pnpbios IDs assigned to LM chips. NetBSD 9.99 March 8, 2018 NetBSD 9.99
