Kernel driver lm70
Supported chip:
* National Semiconductor LM70
Kaiwan N Billimoria <>
This driver implements support for the National Semiconductor LM70
temperature sensor.
The LM70 temperature sensor chip supports a single temperature sensor.
It communicates with a host processor (or microcontroller) via an
SPI/Microwire Bus interface.
Communication with the LM70 is simple: when the temperature is to be sensed,
the driver accesses the LM70 using SPI communication: 16 SCLK cycles
comprise the MOSI/MISO loop. At the end of the transfer, the 11-bit 2's
complement digital temperature (sent via the SIO line), is available in the
driver for interpretation. This driver makes use of the kernel's in-core
SPI support.

Jean Delvare <> for mentoring the hwmon-side driver
