AD2S1200 IIO Resolver-to-Digital Converter Linux Driver

Supported Devices

Evaluation Boards


This is a Linux industrial I/O (IIO) subsystem driver, targeting Resolver-to-Digital Converters. The industrial I/O subsystem provides a unified framework for drivers for many different types of converters and sensors using a number of different physical interfaces (i2c, spi, etc). See IIO for more information.

Source Mainlined?
git Yes


Adding Linux driver support

Configure kernel with “make menuconfig” (alternatively use “make xconfig” or “make qconfig”)

The Driver depends on CONFIG_SPI
