amdpm - AMD 756 Power Management controller driver
This driver provides access to the AMD 756 Power management controller.
Currently, only smbus controller function is implemented.
The embedded SMBus controller of the AMD 756 chipset may give you access
to the monitoring facilities of your mainboard. See smb(4) for writing
user code to fetch voltages, temperature and so on from the monitoring
chip of your mainboard.
The amdpm driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.5.
This driver was written by Matthew C. Forman. Based heavily on the alpm
driver by Nicolas Souchu. This manual page was written by Murray Stokely
Only polling mode is supported.
