The G793/G794 contains 3 precise digital thermome-
ters, 3/4 fan controllers, fan failure detection.
The thermometers report the temperature of 2 remote
sensors and 1 local sensor. The remote sensors are di-
ode-connected transistors typically a low-cost, easily
mounted 2N3904 NPN type or the diode built-in in CPU.
Remote accuracy is ±1°C for multiple transistor manu-
facturer. Local accuracy is ±3°C. The G793/G794 also
support offset adjust function via SMBus to fix the error
due to different CPU diode or parasitic resistors.
The 2-wire serial interface accepts standard System
Management Bus (SMBusTM) Write Byte, Read Byte,
Send Byte, and Receive Byte commands. The SMBus
address is 72h for write and 73h for read.
G793/G794 contains 3/4 controllers. FAN controller per-
forms closed-loop and open-loop control. G793/G794
determines the current fan speed based on the FG inputs
and an externally supplied 32.768kHz clock. The driving
ability is 5mA. G793/G794 also provides ALERT for fan
fail and out of control event.
