36Module Parameters
38force_addr=0xaddr       Set the I/O base address. Useful for boards
39                        that don't set the address in the BIOS. Does not do a
40                        PCI force; the device must still be present in lspci.
41                        Don't use this unless the driver complains that the
42                        base address is not set.
43                        Example: 'modprobe sis5595 force_addr=0x290'
49The Sis5595 southbridge has integrated hardware monitor functions.
50It also has an I2C bus, but this driver only supports the hardware monitor.
51For the I2C bus driver see i2c-sis5595.
53The SiS5595 implements zero or one temperature sensor, two FAN speed
54sensors, four or five voltage sensors, and alarms.
56On the first version of the chip, there are four voltage
57sensors and one temperature sensor.
59On the second version of the chip,
60the temperature sensor (temp) and the fifth voltage sensor (in4) share a pin
61which is configurable, but not through the driver. Sorry.
62The driver senses the configuration of the pin, which was hopefully
63set by the BIOS.
64If the temperature function is enabled, in4 will return 0.
65If the in4 function is enabled, temp will return 0.
67Temperatures are measured in degrees Celsius. An alarm is triggered once
68when the max is crossed; it is also triggered
69when it drops below the min value.
70Measurements are guaranteed
71between -55 and +125 degrees, with a resolution of 1 degree.
73FAN rotation speeds are reported in RPM (rotations per minute). An alarm is
74triggered if the rotation speed has dropped below a programmable limit. FAN
75readings can be divided by a programmable divider (1, 2, 4 or 8) to give
76the readings more range or accuracy. This is important because some FANs
77report only one 'tick' each rotation, while others report two - making
78all readings twice as high. Not all RPM values can accurately be represented,
79so some rounding is done. With a divider of 2, the lowest representable
80value is around 2600 RPM.
82Voltage sensors (also known as IN sensors) report their values in volts.
83An alarm is triggered if the voltage has crossed a programmable minimum
84or maximum limit. Note that minimum in this case always means 'closest to
85zero'; this is important for negative voltage measurements. All voltage
86inputs can measure voltages between 0 and 4.08 volts, with a resolution
87of 0.016 volt.
89In addition to the alarms described above, there is a BTI alarm, which gets
90triggered when an external chip has crossed its limits. Usually, this is
91connected to some LM75-like chip; if at least one crosses its limits, this
92bit gets set.
94If an alarm triggers, it will remain triggered until the hardware register
95is read at least once. This means that the cause for the alarm may
96already have disappeared!  Note that in the current implementation, all
97hardware registers are read whenever any data is read (unless it is less
98than 1.5 seconds since the last update). This means that you can easily
99miss once-only alarms.
101The Sis5595 only updates its values each 1.5 seconds; reading it more often
102will do no harm, but will return 'old' values.
106Some chips refuse to be enabled. We don't know why.
107The driver will recognize this and print a message in dmesg.
