MEMBERS

type

What type of measurement is the channel making.

channel

What number do we wish to assign the channel.

channel2

If there is a second number for a differential channel then this is it. If modified is set then the value here specifies the modifier.

address

Driver specific identifier.

scan_index

Monotonic index to give ordering in scans when read from a buffer.

scan_type

sign: 's' or 'u' to specify signed or unsigned realbits: Number of valid bits of data storagebits: Realbits + padding shift: Shift right by this before masking out realbits. repeat: Number of times real/storage bits repeats. When the repeat element is more than 1, then the type element in sysfs will show a repeat value. Otherwise, the number of repetitions is omitted. endianness: little or big endian

info_mask_separate

What information is to be exported that is specific to this channel.

info_mask_shared_by_type

What information is to be exported that is shared by all channels of the same type.

info_mask_shared_by_dir

What information is to be exported that is shared by all channels of the same direction.

info_mask_shared_by_all

What information is to be exported that is shared by all channels.

event_spec

Array of events which should be registered for this channel.

num_event_specs

Size of the event_spec array.

ext_info

Array of extended info attributes for this channel. The array is NULL terminated, the last element should have its name field set to NULL.

extend_name

Allows labeling of channel attributes with an informative name. Note this has no effect codes etc, unlike modifiers.

datasheet_name

A name used in in-kernel mapping of channels. It should correspond to the first name that the channel is referred to by in the datasheet (e.g. IND), or the nearest possible compound name (e.g. IND-INC).

modified

Does a modifier apply to this channel. What these are depends on the channel type. Modifier is set in channel2. Examples are IIO_MOD_X for axial sensors about the 'x' axis.

indexed

Specify the channel has a numerical index. If not, the channel index number will be suppressed for sysfs attributes but not for event codes.

output

Channel is output.

differential

Channel is differential.
