+Description
+-----------
+
+This driver implements support for the Sensirion SHTC1 chip, a humidity and
+temperature sensor. Temperature is measured in degrees celsius, relative
+humidity is expressed as a percentage. Driver can be used as well for SHTW1
+chip, which has the same electrical interface.
+
+The device communicates with the I2C protocol. All sensors are set to I2C
+address 0x70. See Documentation/i2c/instantiating-devices for methods to
+instantiate the device.
+
+There are two options configurable by means of shtc1_platform_data:
+1. blocking (pull the I2C clock line down while performing the measurement) or
+ non-blocking mode. Blocking mode will guarantee the fastest result but
+ the I2C bus will be busy during that time. By default, non-blocking mode
+ is used. Make sure clock-stretching works properly on your device if you
+ want to use blocking mode.
+2. high or low accuracy. High accuracy is used by default and using it is
+ strongly recommended.
