Hmm ... I didn't use your driver but my prototype driver which also supports
temperature and voltage attributes, so if anything it should create more
stress on the chip. No error so far, after running the script for a couple
of minutes. How long does it take for errors to appear, and how do I see
that there is an error ? Does the driver fail to instantiate ?
