+Description
+-----------
+
+The TI / Burr-Brown INA209 monitors voltage, current, and power on the high side
+of a D.C. power supply. It can perform measurements and calculations in the
+background to supply readings at any time. It includes a programmable
+calibration multiplier to scale the displayed current and power values.
+
+
+Sysfs entries
+-------------
+
+The INA209 chip is highly configurable both via hardwiring and via
+the I2C bus. See the datasheet for details.
+
+This tries to expose most monitoring features of the hardware via
+sysfs. It does not support every feature of this chip.

+General Remarks
+---------------
+
+The power and current registers in this chip require that the calibration
+register is programmed correctly before they are used. Normally this is expected
+to be done in the BIOS. In the absence of BIOS programming, the shunt resistor
+voltage can be provided using platform data. The driver uses platform data from
+the ina2xx driver for this purpose. If calibration register data is not provided
+via platform data, the driver checks if the calibration register has been
+programmed (ie has a value not equal to zero). If so, this value is retained.
+Otherwise, a default value reflecting a shunt resistor value of 10 mOhm is
+programmed into the calibration register.
+
+
+Output Pins
+-----------
+
+Output pin programming is a board feature which depends on the BIOS. It is
+outside the scope of a hardware monitoring driver to enable or disable output
+pins.
