Subject: patch "iio: imu: fxos8700: fix MAGN sensor scale and unit" added to char-misc-linus
Date: Tue, 31 Jan 2023 10:52:46 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

This is a note to let you know that I've just added the patch titled

    iio: imu: fxos8700: fix MAGN sensor scale and unit

to my char-misc git tree which can be found at
in the char-misc-linus branch.

The patch will show up in the next release of the linux-next tree
(usually sometime within the next 24 hours during the week.)

The patch will hopefully also be merged in Linus's tree for the
next -rc kernel release.

If you have any questions about this process, please let me know.

Subject: iio: imu: fxos8700: fix MAGN sensor scale and unit

+/-1200uT is a MAGN sensor full measurement range. Magnetometer scale
is the magnetic sensitivity parameter. It is referenced as 0.1uT
according to datasheet and magnetometer channel unit is Gauss in
sysfs-bus-iio documentation. Gauss and uTesla unit conversion
relationship as follows: 0.1uT = 0.001Gs.

Set magnetometer scale and available magnetometer scale as fixed 0.001Gs.
