Devices

This is the summary page listing of over 150 hardware monitoring devices supported by the Linux 2.6/3 kernel. For Linux 2.4 support, please see LegacyDevices instead.

Drivers are listed in two groups: sensor chip and bus. Bus drivers are the I2C/SMBus bus masters. If your sensor chip is on an I2C or SPI bus, a bus driver is required to access any device on the bus. Chip drivers are used to access the sensor chips themselves and export the readings.

To find out what driver you need and what chips you have use the sensors-detect utility in our package. If your version of sensors-detect failed to detect a chip, you should try the  latest version of sensors-detect. sensors-detect is a stand-alone script, so you can simply download it and run it on any system, without installing anything (other than perl). You may also try our Installation Wizard.

If you would like us to support a chip not listed below, or listed as 'not planned', please contact us. Please indicate if you can help in development, testing, or donations. We don't have much spare time, so the more help you can provide, the better your chances to get a chip supported fast.

 AMD K8 yes k8temp PCI 2.6.19 or  standalone driver Latest AMD K8 processors have integrated sensors which can be read directly without any additional monitoring chip. Driver contributed by Rudolf Marek. Upgrade to lm_sensors 2.10.1 or later is mandatory, earlier versions of libsensors will fail with a "General parse error" message. Note: many recent K8 models (revision F and later) have been reported to have broken thermal sensors so the k8temp driver will return bogus values. See ticket #2278 for example. Changes in kernel 2.6.29 may improve the situation a bit. Feedback welcome. See this FAQ entry if running kernel 2.6.33 or 2.6.34 on a rev. G desktop model.

 Intel ICH8 no PCI (2013-03-20) The ICH8 (82801H) and several later Intel south bridges have embedded sensors, named MEI or QST. These are not yet supported, due to a lack of technical documentation and support from Intel. The  OpenAMT project is supposed to help, but in practice  not much is happening. Or maybe there is  some hope?  Or here,  or here.

 ITE IT8702F yes LPC (2007-11-03) We have a datasheet. Two requests ( John Sutton, Scott in ticket #1690) and one potential tester ( Andrew). On most boards it seems that the limited hardware monitoring features of this chip aren't used, so there's no point in adding support before we know of at least one system where they are used.
 ITE  IT8705F,  IT8712F yes it87 LPC 2.5.69 (2008-10-23) Fan speed monitoring support for IT8712F rev. 8 (J) and later needs kernel version >= 2.6.27 and possibly a cold boot.

Two requests ( Jae Sammy,  Virgil Gheorghiu.) The IT8758E was reported to have the same device ID, so hopefully they are fully compatible. Support added by Jean Delvare, please test the standalone driver and report.
 ITE IT8726F yes it87 LPC 2.6.23 Similar to the IT8716F.
 ITE IT8728F yes it87 LPC 3.3 or  standalone driver (2013-05-07) Found on Gigabyte H67, P67 and Z68 boards as well as various other boards from the same and other manufacturers. Six requests ( Nick Hall,  Ivan Bulatovic, jy0610, Kyle, Nikolay Mikov,  Gustavo De Nardin). Support was added to the it87 driver, considering the IT8728F as essentially compatible with the IT8721F. Please report if you think the driver is misbehaving. With kernel 3.2 or older, if you can't build the standalone driver, load the driver with force_id=0x8721.
 ITE IT8771E yes it87 LPC 3.9 or  standalone driver (2013-01-16) Found on Asustek boards. No datasheet, supposedly a custom chip made by ITE for Asustek only. One request ( Tomàs Deltell Bonell). Experimental support was added to the it87 driver, test reports welcome.
 ITE IT8772E/F yes it87 LPC 3.9 or  standalone driver (2013-01-16) Found on Foxconn and Shuttle H67 boards. No datasheet yet. Three requests (Boris Hajduk,  Kazuya,  In-Ho Yi). Experimental support was added to the it87 driver, test reports welcome.

 Winbond (now Nuvoton  http://www.nuvoton.com/) W83L771W/G,  W83L771AWG/ASG yes lm90 I2C 2.6.34 or  standalone driver Found on several  Zotac Ion ITX boards and also on the ASRock ALiveNF6G-DVI. Support contributed by Jean Delvare. W83L771W/G detection fixed in kernel 2.6.37. For older kernels, you can force chip type to lm86.
 Winbond  W83L784R/G yes I2C
 Winbond W83L785R yes w83l785r I2C Driver is available  here. If you want to use it with nVidia cards you can try  nvclock instead.
 Winbond  W83L786NR/NG,  W83L786R/G yes w83l786ng I2C 2.6.25 or  standalone driver (2013-12-03) Driver contributed by Kevin Lo. User-space support only available in lm-sensors 3.0.0 and later. Fan speed control broken before kernel 3.13, use the standalone driver if you need this feature.
 Winbond (formerly National Semiconductor) PC87372, PC87373 yes LPC (2005-05-18) Super I/O with fan monitoring and PWM. A driver has been requested, will be developed upon donation of a board.
 Winbond (formerly National Semiconductor) PC87431 no ipmisensors IPMI (2005-10-29) Requires an SMBus adapter supported by the i2c-i801 driver and the following kernel patches: 1)  Open IPMI 2.6 Kernel Patches for the ipmi-smb driver and asynchronous I2C transfers from Corey Minyard on a 2.6.12 kernel: linux-ipmi-2.6.12-base.diff, linux-ipmi-2.6.12-smb.diff, linux-i2c-2.6.12-nonblock.diff, linux-i2c-2.6.12-i801-nonblock.diff, and 2) The  bmcsensors/i2c-ipmi port to Linux 2.6 by Yani Ioannou: bmcsensors-26-20050808.tar.bz2
 Winbond (formerly National Semiconductor) PC87591 yes LPC (2006-11-11) LPC Mobile Embedded Controllers with ADC (voltages and temperatures) and PWM, the sensor data not accessible in standard way, cannot create the driver. Check ticket #2128.
ACPI thermal zones no thermal_sys ACPI 2.6.26 ACPI thermal zones are now exposed as standard hwmon devices so libsensors will pick them.
BMC/IPMI management controllers yes ipmisensors IPMI (2004-12-12)  Port to Linux 2.6 originally by Yani Ioannou, essentially abandoned now. Better use  ipmitool instead. It doesn't integrate with lm-sensors but that's the best we can propose at the moment.
S.M.A.R.T. hard drive temperature no Use smartctl from  smartmontools or  hddtemp instead. Best would be to rewrite hddtemp as a kernel driver, contact us if you want to help with this.
