MCP3KADC(4)             NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual            MCP3KADC(4)

NAME
     mcp3kadc -- Microchip 3x0x SAR analog to digital converter

SYNOPSIS
     mcp3kadc* at spi? slave ? flags N

DESCRIPTION
     The mcp3kadc driver reports the current voltage on the chip's ADC chan-
     nels through the envsys(4) API.  The driver calculates these values
     according to the currently selected reference voltage (Vref).  It can be
     changed through the sysctl(8) node hw.mcp3kadc0.vref.

     The following table shows the supported chips.  The type of the chip can
     be selected with the flags argument in the config file.

SYSCTL VARIABLES
     The following sysctl(3) variables are provided:

     hw.mcp3kadc0.vref
             Defines the reference voltage on the chip's Vref pin in milli-
             volts (mV).  It defaults to the ADC's maximum output value + 1 in
             millivolts (e.g., 4096 for a 12-bit ADC).

SEE ALSO
