  18Description
  19-----------
  20
  21This driver implements support for the hardware sensor capabilities
  22of the SMSC LPC47M192 and compatible Super-I/O chips.
  23
  24These chips support 3 temperature channels and 8 voltage inputs
  25as well as CPU voltage VID input.
  26
  27They do also have fan monitoring and control capabilities, but the
  28these features are accessed via ISA bus and are not supported by this
  29driver. Use the 'smsc47m1' driver for fan monitoring and control.
  30
  31Voltages and temperatures are measured by an 8-bit ADC, the resolution
  32of the temperatures is 1 bit per degree C.
  33Voltages are scaled such that the nominal voltage corresponds to
  34192 counts, i.e. 3/4 of the full range. Thus the available range for
  35each voltage channel is 0V ... 255/192*(nominal voltage), the resolution
  36is 1 bit per (nominal voltage)/192.
  37Both voltage and temperature values are scaled by 1000, the sys files
  38show voltages in mV and temperatures in units of 0.001 degC.
  39
  40The +12V analog voltage input channel (in4_input) is multiplexed with
  41bit 4 of the encoded CPU voltage. This means that you either get
  42a +12V voltage measurement or a 5 bit CPU VID, but not both.
  43The default setting is to use the pin as 12V input, and use only 4 bit VID.
  44This driver assumes that the information in the configuration register
  45is correct, i.e. that the BIOS has updated the configuration if
  46the motherboard has this input wired to VID4.
  47
  48The temperature and voltage readings are updated once every 1.5 seconds.
  49Reading them more often repeats the same values.

  53---------------
  54
  55in0_input       - +2.5V voltage input
  56in1_input       - CPU voltage input (nominal 2.25V)
  57in2_input       - +3.3V voltage input
  58in3_input       - +5V voltage input
  59in4_input       - +12V voltage input (may be missing if used as VID4)
  60in5_input       - Vcc voltage input (nominal 3.3V)
  61                  This is the supply voltage of the sensor chip itself.
  62in6_input       - +1.5V voltage input
  63in7_input       - +1.8V voltage input
  64
  65in[0-7]_min,
  66in[0-7]_max     - lower and upper alarm thresholds for in[0-7]_input reading
  67
  68                  All voltages are read and written in mV.
  69
  70in[0-7]_alarm   - alarm flags for voltage inputs
  71                  These files read '1' in case of alarm, '0' otherwise.
  72
  73temp1_input     - chip temperature measured by on-chip diode
  74temp[2-3]_input - temperature measured by external diodes (one of these would
  75                  typically be wired to the diode inside the CPU)
  76
  77temp[1-3]_min,
  78temp[1-3]_max   - lower and upper alarm thresholds for temperatures
  79
  80temp[1-3]_offset - temperature offset registers
  81                  The chip adds the offsets stored in these registers to
  82                  the corresponding temperature readings.
  83                  Note that temp1 and temp2 offsets share the same register,
  84                  they cannot both be different from zero at the same time.
  85                  Writing a non-zero number to one of them will reset the other
  86                  offset to zero.
  87
  88                  All temperatures and offsets are read and written in
  89                  units of 0.001 degC.
  90
  91temp[1-3]_alarm - alarm flags for temperature inputs, '1' in case of alarm,
  92                  '0' otherwise.
  93temp[2-3]_input_fault - diode fault flags for temperature inputs 2 and 3.
  94                  A fault is detected if the two pins for the corresponding
  95                  sensor are open or shorted, or any of the two is shorted
  96                  to ground or Vcc. '1' indicates a diode fault.
  97
  98cpu0_vid        - CPU voltage as received from the CPU
  99
 100vrm             - CPU VID standard used for decoding CPU voltage
 101
 102                  The *_min, *_max, *_offset and vrm files can be read and
 103                  written, all others are read-only.
