+Description
+-----------
+
+The INA219 is a high-side current shunt and power monitor with an I2C
+interface. The INA219 monitors both shunt drop and supply voltage, with
+programmable conversion times and filtering.
+
+The INA226 is a current shunt and power monitor with an I2C interface.
+The INA226 monitors both a shunt voltage drop and bus supply voltage.
+
+The shunt value in micro-ohms can be set via platform data.
