|SMSC SCH5636 Super I/O chips include an embedded microcontroller for
|hardware monitoring solutions, allowing motherboard manufacturers to create
|their own custom hwmon solution based upon the SCH5636.
|Currently the sch5636 driver only supports the Fujitsu Theseus SCH5636 based
|hwmon solution. The sch5636 driver runs a sanity check on loading to ensure
|it is dealing with a Fujitsu Theseus and not with another custom SCH5636 based
|The Fujitsu Theseus can monitor up to 5 voltages, 8 fans and 16
|temperatures. Note that the driver detects how many fan headers /
|temperature sensors are actually implemented on the motherboard, so you will
|likely see fewer temperature and fan inputs.
|The Fujitsu Theseus hwmon solution also contains an integrated watchdog.
|This watchdog is fully supported by the sch5636 driver.
|An application note describing the Theseus' registers, as well as an
|application note describing the protocol for communicating with the
|microcontroller is available upon request. Please mail me if you want a copy.
