lm75 — lm75 i2c digital temperature sensor driver


device iic device iicbus device lm75


The lm75 driver provides access to sensor data and configuration over the iicbus(4). It provides an easy and simple way to check the functionality of an i2c bus as it provides read and write access to the lm75 configuration register. The access to lm75 data is made via the sysctl(8) interface: dev.lm75.0.%desc: LM75 temperature sensor dev.lm75.0.%driver: lm75 dev.lm75.0.%location: addr=0x49 dev.lm75.0.%pnpinfo: name=lm750 compat=national,lm75 dev.lm75.0.%parent: iicbus3 dev.lm75.0.temperature: 27.1C dev.lm75.0.thyst: 75.0C dev.lm75.0.tos: 80.0C dev.lm75.0.faults: 1 dev.lm75.0.mode: comparator dev.lm75.0.polarity: active-low dev.lm75.0.shutdown: 0 dev.lm75.%d.temperature Is the read-only value of the current temperature read by the sen‐ sor. dev.lm75.%d.thyst Sets the hysteresis temperature. Once the temperature gets over the overtemperature shutdown value (tos) it needs to drop below the hysteresis temperature to disable the output (interrupt) pin again. dev.lm75.%d.tos Sets the overtemperature shutdown value. Once the temperature gets over this value the output pin will be enabled. The way the output (interrupt) pin works, depends on the mode configuration. dev.lm75.%d.faults Is the number of faults that must occur consecutively to activate the interrupt (output) pin. It can be set to 1, 2, 4, and 6. dev.lm75.%d.mode Sets the operation mode for the sensor interrupt pin. It can be set to 'comparator' (default) or 'interrupt'. dev.lm75.%d.polarity Sets the polarity of the sensor interrupt pin. It can be set to 'active-low' (default) or 'active-high'. Please note that the out‐ put pin is an open-drain output and it needs a proper pull-up resistor to work. dev.lm75.%d.shutdown When set to '1' it shuts down the sensor. The temperature conver‐ sion stops but the sensor remains with its i2c bus active, i.e., it can be woken up by setting this option to '0' again. Please check the lm75 datasheet for more details. When used together with snmp_lm75(3) it allows the monitoring of lm75 temperature data over SNMP. The lm75 driver supports both the low and the high resolution models. The low resolution model (lm75) provides a 9 bit output with the LSB representing 0.5C. The high resolution model (lm75a) provides an 11 bit output with the LSB representing 0.125C. The driver tries to auto-detect the lm75 model, but the detection of some lm75 clones may not work reliably. On a device.hints(5) based system, like MIPS, these values are configurable for lm75: Is the iicbus(4) you are attaching to. hint.lm75.%d.addr Is the lm75 i2c address on the iicbus(4). On a FDT(4) based system, like ARM, the DTS part for a lm75 device usually looks like: i2c { ... lm750 { compatible = "national,lm75"; i2c-address = <0x49>; }; }; Where: compatible Should always be set to "national,lm75". i2c-address The i2c-address property indicates which i2c address the lm75 is wired at. lm75 temperature sensors can be wired to 8 different addresses, allowing up to 8 sensors on the same iicbus(4).
