+Description
+-----------
+
+The MAX1619 is a digital temperature sensor. It senses its own temperature as
+well as the temperature of up to one external diode.
+
+All temperature values are given in degrees Celsius. Resolution
+is 1.0 degree for the local temperature and for the remote temperature.
+
+Only the external sensor has high and low limits.
+
+The max1619 driver will not update its values more frequently than every
+other second; reading them more often will do no harm, but will return
+'old' values.
