Intel's Moorestown Can Accelerate On Linux
Last month we shared that Intel was already working on LM_Sensors support for Moorestown, their next-generation mobile platform to launch later this year, and that Linux support has not yet let up. Intel's Ramesh Agarwal this morning pushed out a Linux driver for the Moorestown Analog Accelerometer. This driver in-turn depends upon the driver that surfaced on the kernel mailing list last month to support Langwell ICH blocks. The actual accelerometer used by this Intel mobile platform is the Freescale MMA7341L. This Moorestown Accelerometer driver can be found on the LM_Sensors mailing list.
Intel's Kalhan Trisal has also been working on a number of other LM_Sensor drivers, including an ambient light sensor for the Intersil-ISL29020, a compass driver for a Honeywell HMC6352, and an accelerometer driver for a LIS331DL.
