Subject[PATCH 00/10] Enhancements to at91-sama5d2_adc and rtc trigger
From: Eugen Hristev <>

This series includes support for having the Real Time Clock trigger
capability for the Analog to Digital Converter in sama5d2-based SoCs
(RTC ADC Trigger)

The first patch of the series has been already submitted on the iio mailing list
[PATCH] iio: adc: at91-sama5d2_adc: update for other trigger usage
But I also include here for reference since the other commits on the driver
use this as a base commit.

In short, the RTC block can trigger the ADC block to perform a conversion.
To solve this, I created a driver named rtc-adc-trigger that shares the
register map with the RTC. It's done in devicetree as a subnode.
This driver will register a separate trigger inside the iio subsystem.
This trigger can then be associated to the ADC driver (sysfs current_trigger).
However, this is not enough. The ADC has to be aware that it;s being
triggered by the RTC (TRGMOD and TRGSEL). So, this hardware link between
the two IPs has been described as a phandle reference in the ADC node to the
RTC trigger node.
At runtime (trigger selection), the ADC will check if the assigned trigger
is the RTC one given by the phandle link. If so, it will configure
The RTC trigger driver will also register to sysfs two attributes for
selecting the desired trigger frequency.
One attribute is RO : list of possible frequencies.
Another attribute is RW: current set frequency.

To achieve all this, had to make a small patch on the RTC to populate
child nodes platform data to probe them.

Fixed other issues with the adc driver: unfinished conversions on IRQ in
triggered mode, and differential channels missing configurations in
triggered mode.

For exercising this, created DT patches for sama5d2/sama5d2_xplained.

Here is a sample of how it works in sysfs:

# cat /sys/bus/iio/devices/trigger0/trigger_frequency_hz
# echo 1 > /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio:device0/scan_elements/in_voltage4_en
# cat /sys/bus/iio/devices/
iio:device0/ iio_sysfs_trigger/ trigger0/ trigger1/
# cat /sys/bus/iio/devices/trigger0/name
# iio_generic_buffer -n fc030000.adc -t f80480b0.at91_rtc_adc -c 5
iio device number being used is 0
iio trigger number being used is 0
/sys/bus/iio/devices/iio:device0 f80480b0.at91_rtc_adc

Future work:
In the future the node would have to be enabled for other sama5d2 based
boards as well, and MAINTAINERS to be updated if this driver is accepted.
