The ADT7410 is a temperature sensor with rated temperature range of -55°C to
+150°C. It has a high accuracy of +/-0.5°C and can be operated at a resolution
of 13 bits (0.0625°C) or 16 bits (0.0078°C). The sensor provides an INT pin to
indicate that a minimum or maximum temperature set point has been exceeded, as
well as a critical temperature (CT) pin to indicate that the critical
temperature set point has been exceeded. Both pins can be set up with a common
hysteresis of 0°C - 15°C and a fault queue, ranging from 1 to 4 events. Both
pins can individually set to be active-low or active-high, while the whole
device can either run in comparator mode or interrupt mode. The ADT7410
supports continous temperature sampling, as well as sampling one temperature
value per second or even justget one sample on demand for power saving.
Besides, it can completely power down its ADC, if power management is

The ADT7420 is register compatible, the only differences being the package,
a slightly narrower operating temperature range (-40°C to +150°C), and a
better accuracy (0.25°C instead of 0.50°C.)

Configuration Notes

Since the device uses one hysteresis value, which is an offset to minimum,
maximum and critical temperature, it can only be set for temp#_max_hyst.
However, temp#_min_hyst and temp#_crit_hyst show their corresponding
The device is set to 16 bit resolution and comparator mode.
