Kernel driver ltc2978
Supported chips:
* Linear Technology LTC2978
Prefix: 'ltc2978'
Addresses scanned: -
* Linear Technology LTC3880
Prefix: 'ltc3880'
Addresses scanned: -
Author: Guenter Roeck <>
The LTC2978 is an octal power supply monitor, supervisor, sequencer and
margin controller. The LTC3880 is a dual, PolyPhase DC/DC synchronous
step-down switching regulator controller.
Usage Notes
This driver does not probe for PMBus devices. You will have to instantiate
devices explicitly.
Example: the following commands will load the driver for an LTC2978 at address
0x60 on I2C bus #1:
# modprobe ltc2978
# echo ltc2978 0x60 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device

history for all attributes.
temp[1-3]_input Measured temperature.
On LTC2978, only one temperature measurement is
supported and reflects the internal temperature.
On LTC3880, temp1 and temp2 report external
temperatures, and temp3 reports the internal
temp[1-3]_min Mimimum temperature.
temp[1-3]_max Maximum temperature.
temp[1-3]_lcrit Critical low temperature.
temp[1-3]_crit Critical high temperature.
temp[1-3]_min_alarm Chip temperature low alarm.
