A10 LIME: interanl chip temperature?
« on: April 04, 2014, 05:35:30 AM »
I just got my new board, it looks great and so far works great!

I am a little worried about the A10 getting hot, so I'll put some heatsink on it.

But is there a way to get the internal chip temperature from linux? Something like lm_sensors?

I saw something on the linux-sunxi list recently about sensors. You'll have to search for it...

Thanks, John!

After some digging I think I located it: https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi/commit/4ab55f334cfdcf29a4dec0a967f0597a3c3a7bee

Will try some later time and hopefully can report success.
But before that I have to build/test my toolchain :-|

Hi,

Better check this: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux-sunxi/u4Rwo630MnY
As far as I see patches are currently available only in ssvb's github repo: https://github.com/ssvb/linux-sunxi/commits/20140401-axp209-hwmon-v2

I don't think this patch applies to A10 boards?

There are no filenames containing 'temp' in /sys/ so I believe there is no way to measure the chip temperature. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
