Kernel driver i2c-parport-light¶
Author: Jean Delvare <firstname.lastname@example.org>
This driver is a light version of i2c-parport. It doesn’t depend on the parport driver, and uses direct I/O access instead. This might be preferred on embedded systems where wasting memory for the clean but heavy parport handling is not an option. The drawback is a reduced portability and the impossibility to daisy-chain other parallel port devices.
Please see i2c-parport for documentation.
- type: type of adapter (see i2c-parport or modinfo)
- base: base I/O address Default is 0x378 which is fairly common for parallel ports, at least on PC.
- irq: optional IRQ This must be passed if you want SMBus alert support, assuming your adapter actually supports this.
