-Kernel driver smsc47m192
-Supported chips:
- * SMSC LPC47M192, LPC47M15x, LPC47M292 and LPC47M997
- Prefix: 'smsc47m192'
- Addresses scanned: I2C 0x2c - 0x2d
- Datasheet: The datasheet for LPC47M192 is publicly available from
- The LPC47M15x, LPC47M292 and LPC47M997 are compatible for
- hardware monitoring.
-Author: Hartmut Rick <>
- Special thanks to Jean Delvare for careful checking
- of the code and many helpful comments and suggestions.
-This driver implements support for the hardware sensor capabilities
-of the SMSC LPC47M192 and compatible Super-I/O chips.
-These chips support 3 temperature channels and 8 voltage inputs
-as well as CPU voltage VID input.
-They do also have fan monitoring and control capabilities, but the
-these features are accessed via ISA bus and are not supported by this
-driver. Use the 'smsc47m1' driver for fan monitoring and control.
-Voltages and temperatures are measured by an 8-bit ADC, the resolution
-of the temperatures is 1 bit per degree C.
-Voltages are scaled such that the nominal voltage corresponds to
-192 counts, i.e. 3/4 of the full range. Thus the available range for
-each voltage channel is 0V ... 255/192*(nominal voltage), the resolution
-is 1 bit per (nominal voltage)/192.
-Both voltage and temperature values are scaled by 1000, the sys files
-show voltages in mV and temperatures in units of 0.001 degC.
-The +12V analog voltage input channel (in4_input) is multiplexed with
-bit 4 of the encoded CPU voltage. This means that you either get
-a +12V voltage measurement or a 5 bit CPU VID, but not both.
-The default setting is to use the pin as 12V input, and use only 4 bit VID.
-This driver assumes that the information in the configuration register
-is correct, i.e. that the BIOS has updated the configuration if
-the motherboard has this input wired to VID4.
-The temperature and voltage readings are updated once every 1.5 seconds.
-Reading them more often repeats the same values.
-sysfs interface
-in0_input - +2.5V voltage input
-in1_input - CPU voltage input (nominal 2.25V)
-in2_input - +3.3V voltage input
-in3_input - +5V voltage input
-in4_input - +12V voltage input (may be missing if used as VID4)
-in5_input - Vcc voltage input (nominal 3.3V)
- This is the supply voltage of the sensor chip itself.
-in6_input - +1.5V voltage input
-in7_input - +1.8V voltage input
-in[0-7]_max - lower and upper alarm thresholds for in[0-7]_input reading
- All voltages are read and written in mV.
-in[0-7]_alarm - alarm flags for voltage inputs
- These files read '1' in case of alarm, '0' otherwise.
-temp1_input - chip temperature measured by on-chip diode
-temp[2-3]_input - temperature measured by external diodes (one of these would
- typically be wired to the diode inside the CPU)
-temp[1-3]_max - lower and upper alarm thresholds for temperatures
-temp[1-3]_offset - temperature offset registers
- The chip adds the offsets stored in these registers to
- the corresponding temperature readings.
- Note that temp1 and temp2 offsets share the same register,
- they cannot both be different from zero at the same time.
- Writing a non-zero number to one of them will reset the other
- offset to zero.
- All temperatures and offsets are read and written in
- units of 0.001 degC.
-temp[1-3]_alarm - alarm flags for temperature inputs, '1' in case of alarm,
- '0' otherwise.
-temp[2-3]_input_fault - diode fault flags for temperature inputs 2 and 3.
- A fault is detected if the two pins for the corresponding
- sensor are open or shorted, or any of the two is shorted
- to ground or Vcc. '1' indicates a diode fault.
-cpu0_vid - CPU voltage as received from the CPU
-vrm - CPU VID standard used for decoding CPU voltage
- The *_min, *_max, *_offset and vrm files can be read and
- written, all others are read-only.
