+Maxim MAX197 driver
+===================
+
+Author:
+ * Vivien Didelot <vivien.didelot@savoirfairelinux.com>
+
+Supported chips:
+ * Maxim MAX197
+ Prefix: 'max197'
+ Datasheet: http://datasheets.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/MAX197.pdf
+
+ * Maxim MAX199
+ Prefix: 'max199'
+ Datasheet: http://datasheets.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/MAX199.pdf
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+The A/D converters MAX197, and MAX199 are both 8-Channel, Multi-Range, 5V,
+12-Bit DAS with 8+4 Bus Interface and Fault Protection.
+
+The available ranges for the MAX197 are {0,-5V} to 5V, and {0,-10V} to 10V,
+while they are {0,-2V} to 2V, and {0,-4V} to 4V on the MAX199.
+
+Platform data
+-------------
+
+The MAX197 platform data (defined in linux/platform_data/max197.h) should be
+filled with a pointer to a conversion function, defined like:
+
+ int convert(u8 ctrl);
+
+ctrl is the control byte to write to start a new conversion.
+On success, the function must return the 12-bit raw value read from the chip,
+or a negative error code otherwise.
+
+Control byte format:
+
+Bit Name Description
+7,6 PD1,PD0 Clock and Power-Down modes
+5 ACQMOD Internal or External Controlled Acquisition
+4 RNG Full-scale voltage magnitude at the input
+3 BIP Unipolar or Bipolar conversion mode
+2,1,0 A2,A1,A0 Channel
+
+Sysfs interface
+---------------
+
+* in[0-7]_input: The conversion value for the corresponding channel.
+ RO
+
+* in[0-7]_min: The lower limit (in mV) for the corresponding channel.
+ For the MAX197, it will be adjusted to -10000, -5000, or 0.
+ For the MAX199, it will be adjusted to -4000, -2000, or 0.
+ RW
+
+* in[0-7]_max: The higher limit (in mV) for the corresponding channel.
+ For the MAX197, it will be adjusted to 0, 5000, or 10000.
+ For the MAX199, it will be adjusted to 0, 2000, or 4000.
