+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver implements support for the Microchip Technology MCP3021 and
+MCP3221 chip.
+
+The Microchip Technology Inc. MCP3021 is a successive approximation A/D
+converter (ADC) with 10-bit resolution. The MCP3221 has 12-bit resolution.
+
+These devices provide one single-ended input with very low power consumption.
+Communication to the MCP3021/MCP3221 is performed using a 2-wire I2C
+compatible interface. Standard (100 kHz) and Fast (400 kHz) I2C modes are
+available. The default I2C device address is 0x4d (contact the Microchip
+factory for additional address options).
