OneXPlayer Sensor/Fan Support Extended To More Models With Its Linux 6.2 Introduction

Written by Michael Larabel in Hardware on 28 November 2022 at 05:56 AM EST. 1 Comment
One of the new hardware drivers set to be introduced in the upcoming Linux 6.2 kernel cycle is the OneXPlayer sensor driver for supporting hardware monitoring on the x86_64-based handheld gaming devices. While OneXPlayer devices ship with Windows by default, Linux is becoming an increasingly sought after target particularly with prospects for running SteamOS.

Recently there's been work on a OneXPlayer sensor/platform driver focused on enabling fan control support that is managed by the device's embedded controller (EC).

OneXPlayer Mini

Initially this new "oxp-sensors" driver was limited to just one of the AMD-powered OneXPlayer handhelds but has now been extended. This driver with its Linux 6.2 introduction now supports reading and setting the fan control on the following gaming handheld devices:
- OneXPlayer AMD
- OneXPlayer mini AMD
- OneXPlayer mini AMD PRO

The Intel-based OneXPlayer devices remain unsupported by this driver.

The AOK ZOE A1 is a device similar to the OneXPlayer and features a Ryzen 7 6800U SoC, 8-inch IPS screen, and running Windows 11 by default.

Supporting these additional devices by the oxp-sensors driver ended up being primarily just adding in the different DMI strings. This patch within the HWMON subsystem's hwmon-next branch expands that supported device list ahead of the oxp-sensors driver being merged to mainline next month for the Linux 6.2 merge window.
