NAME
mcp980x -- Microchip 9800/1/2/3 I2C temperature sensor driver
SYNOPSIS
mcp980x* at iic? addr 0x48
DESCRIPTION
The mcp980x driver provides support for the MCP980x series of temperature sensors. It allows reporting ambient temperature through the envsys(4) API.
SYSCTL VARIABLES
The following sysctl(3) variable are provided: machdep.mcp980x0.res ADC resolution (integer). Valid values are 0-3, where 0 is 9-bit (0.5 Celsius degree) and 3 is 12-bit (0.0625 Celsius degree) res- olution. machdep.mcp980x0.templimit If the ambient temperature exceeds this limit, the chip asserts an alert line (inte- ger). machdep.mcp980x0.hysteresis Hysteresis for temperature limit (integer).
SEE ALSO
envsys(4)
HISTORY
The mcp980x device first appeared in NetBSD 7.0.
AUTHORS
The mcp980x driver was written by Radoslaw Kujawa <radoslaw.kujawa@gmail.com>.
CAVEATS
MCP9804 and MCP9805 chip are different and are supported by the sdtemp(4) driver. The MCP980x chip supports hysteresis and temperature limit values with a resolution of 0.5 Celsius degree, however the mcp980x driver supports setting only integer values. NetBSD 9.99 July 26, 2016 NetBSD 9.99
