  44Description
  45-----------
  46
  47This driver permits reading of the internal temperature sensor of AMD
  48Family 10h/11h/12h/14h/15h processors.
  49
  50All these processors have a sensor, but on those for Socket F or AM2+,
  51the sensor may return inconsistent values (erratum 319).  The driver
  52will refuse to load on these revisions unless you specify the "force=1"
  53module parameter.
  54
  55Due to technical reasons, the driver can detect only the mainboard's
  56socket type, not the processor's actual capabilities.  Therefore, if you
  57are using an AM3 processor on an AM2+ mainboard, you can safely use the
  58"force=1" parameter.
  59
  60There is one temperature measurement value, available as temp1_input in
  61sysfs. It is measured in degrees Celsius with a resolution of 1/8th degree.
  62Please note that it is defined as a relative value; to quote the AMD manual:
  63
  64  Tctl is the processor temperature control value, used by the platform to
  65  control cooling systems. Tctl is a non-physical temperature on an
  66  arbitrary scale measured in degrees. It does _not_ represent an actual
  67  physical temperature like die or case temperature. Instead, it specifies
  68  the processor temperature relative to the point at which the system must
  69  supply the maximum cooling for the processor's specified maximum case
  70  temperature and maximum thermal power dissipation.
  71
  72The maximum value for Tctl is available in the file temp1_max.
  73
  74If the BIOS has enabled hardware temperature control, the threshold at
  75which the processor will throttle itself to avoid damage is available in
  76temp1_crit and temp1_crit_hyst.
