+The ADT7473 uses the 2-wire interface compatible with the SMBUS 2.0
specification. Using an analog to digital converter it measures three (3)
-temperatures and two (2) voltages. It has three (3) 16-bit counters for
+temperatures and two (2) voltages. It has four (4) 16-bit counters for
measuring fan speed. There are three (3) PWM outputs that can be used
to control fan speed.

The Analog Devices datasheet is very detailed and describes a procedure for
