  14Description
  15-----------
  16The LP3944 is a helper chip that can drive up to 8 leds, with two programmable
  17DIM modes; it could even be used as a gpio expander but this driver assumes it
  18is used as a led controller.
  19
  20The DIM modes are used to set _blink_ patterns for leds, the pattern is
  21specified supplying two parameters:
  22  - period: from 0s to 1.6s
  23  - duty cycle: percentage of the period the led is on, from 0 to 100
  24
  25Setting a led in DIM0 or DIM1 mode makes it blink according to the pattern.
  26See the datasheet for details.
  27
  28LP3944 can be found on Motorola A910 smartphone, where it drives the rgb
  29leds, the camera flash light and the lcds power.

  32Notes
  33-----
  34The chip is used mainly in embedded contexts, so this driver expects it is
  35registered using the i2c_board_info mechanism.
  36
  37To register the chip at address 0x60 on adapter 0, set the platform data
  38according to include/linux/leds-lp3944.h, set the i2c board info:
  39
  40        static struct i2c_board_info __initdata a910_i2c_board_info[] = {
  41                {
  42                        I2C_BOARD_INFO("lp3944", 0x60),
  43                        .platform_data = &a910_lp3944_leds,
  44                },
  45        };
  46
  47and register it in the platform init function
  48
  49        i2c_register_board_info(0, a910_i2c_board_info,
  50                        ARRAY_SIZE(a910_i2c_board_info));
