NAME

Device::Chip::INA219 - chip driver for an INA219

SYNOPSIS

 use Device::Chip::INA219;

 my $chip = Device::Chip::INA219->new;
 $chip->mount( Device::Chip::Adapter::...->new )->get;

 printf "Current bus voltage is %d mV, shunt voltage is %d uV\n",
    $chip->read_bus_voltage->get, $chip->read_shunt_voltage->get;

DESCRIPTION

This Device::Chip subclass provides specific communication to a Texas Instruments INA219 attached to a computer via an I²C adapter.

The reader is presumed to be familiar with the general operation of this chip; the documentation here will not attempt to explain or define chip-specific concepts or features, only the use of this module to access them.

MOUNT PARAMETERS

addr

The I²C address of the device. Can be specified in decimal, octal or hex with leading 0 or 0x prefixes.

METHODS

The following methods documented with a trailing call to ->get return Future instances.

read_config

   $config = $chip->read_config->get

Reads and returns the current chip configuration as a HASH reference.

change_config

   $chip->change_config( %config )->get

Changes the configuration. Any field names not mentioned will be preserved.

read_shunt_voltage

   $uv = $chip->read_shunt_voltage->get

Returns the current shunt voltage reading scaled integer in microvolts.

read_bus_voltage

   $mv = $chip->read_bus_voltage->get

   ( $mv, $ovf, $cnvr ) = $chip->read_bus_voltage->get

Returns the current bus voltage reading, as a scaled integer in milivolts.

The returned Future also yields the OVF and CNVR flags.
