How to use a analog signal sensor

We have both Temperature sensor and successive approximation Register

TS-ADC(Temperature Sensor): Support to 2 channel TS-ADC, the clock frequency must be less than 800KHZ.

SAR-ADC(Successive Approximation):It can convert the analog input signal into 10-bit binary digital codes at maximum conversion rate of 1MSPS with 13MHz A/D converter clock. It can support up to 6 channels input.

I would use the SAR-ADC in this tutorial giving you a view about how to attach a sensor here.

A sample of device tree

rk_headset: rk-headset {
         compatible = "rockchip_headset";
         headset_gpio = <&gpio4 28 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
         spk_con_gpio = <&gpio0 11 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
         pinctrl-names = "default";
         pinctrl-0 = <&hp_det>;
         io-channels = <&saradc 2>;

You can find the driver file here: "drivers/headset_observe/rockchip_headset_core.c"

We define the specific programming model for the device.

static const struct of_device_id rockchip_headset_of_match[] = {
        { .compatible = "rockchip_headset", },

platform_driver struct for platform device:

static struct platform_driver rockchip_headset_driver = {
        .probe  = rockchip_headset_probe,
        .remove = rockchip_headset_remove,
        .resume = rockchip_headset_resume,
        .suspend = rockchip_headset_suspend,
        .driver = {
                .name   = "rockchip_headset",
                .owner  = THIS_MODULE,
                .of_match_table = of_match_ptr(rockchip_headset_of_match),

Getting description of all that is needed to access channel here

pdata->chan = iio_channel_get(&pdev->dev, NULL);

How to get the ADC result:

iio_read_channel_raw() would read from a given channel, return the result following this  calculation:

Vref / (2^n-1) = Vresult / raw

Vref: the reference voltage

n: resolution

Vresult: the final result of

raw: the raw value from ADC register

So for a reference of 1.8V and ADC result of 568 while the resolution is 10 bits:  
Vresult = (1800mv * 568) / 1023
