Subject[PATCH v7 02/13] dt-bindings: Add SLIMbus bindings
From: Sagar Dharia <>

SLIMbus (Serial Low Power Interchip Media Bus) is a specification
developed by MIPI (Mobile Industry Processor Interface) alliance.
SLIMbus is a 2-wire implementation, which is used to communicate with
peripheral components like audio-codec.

This patch adds device tree bindings for the slimbus.

+SLIM(Serial Low Power Interchip Media Bus) bus
+SLIMbus is a 2-wire bus, and is used to communicate with peripheral
+components like audio-codec.
+Required property for SLIMbus controller node:
+- compatible - name of SLIMbus controller
+Child nodes:
+Every SLIMbus controller node can contain zero or more child nodes
+representing slave devices on the bus. Every SLIMbus slave device is
+uniquely determined by the enumeration address containing 4 fields:
+Manufacturer ID, Product code, Device index, and Instance value for
+the device.
+If child node is not present and it is instantiated after device
+discovery (slave device reporting itself present).
+In some cases it may be necessary to describe non-probeable device
+details such as non-standard ways of powering up a device. In
+such cases, child nodes for those devices will be present as
+slaves of the slimbus-controller, as detailed below.
+Required property for SLIMbus child node if it is present:
+- reg - Should be ('Device index', 'Instance ID') from SLIMbus
+ Enumeration Address.
+ Device Index Uniquely identifies multiple Devices within
+ a single Component.
+ Instance ID Is for the cases where multiple Devices of the
+ same type or Class are attached to the bus.
+- compatible -"slimMID,PID". The textual representation of Manufacturer ID,
+ Product Code, shall be in lower case hexadecimal with leading
+ zeroes suppressed
+SLIMbus example for Qualcomm's slimbus manager component:
+ slim@28080000 {
+ compatible = "qcom,apq8064-slim", "qcom,slim";
+ reg = <0x28080000 0x2000>,
+ interrupts = <0 33 0>;
+ clocks = <&lcc SLIMBUS_SRC>, <&lcc AUDIO_SLIMBUS_CLK>;
+ clock-names = "iface", "core";
+ #address-cells = <2>;
+ #size-cell = <0>;
+ codec: wcd9310@1,0{
+ compatible = "slim217,60";
+ reg = <1 0>;
+ };
+ };
