Legal values: 'ADC_GAIN_1_6', 'ADC_GAIN_1_5', 'ADC_GAIN_1_4', 'ADC_GAIN_1_3', 'ADC_GAIN_2_5', 'ADC_GAIN_1_2', 'ADC_GAIN_2_3', 'ADC_GAIN_4_5', 'ADC_GAIN_1', 'ADC_GAIN_2', 'ADC_GAIN_3', 'ADC_GAIN_4', 'ADC_GAIN_6', 'ADC_GAIN_8', 'ADC_GAIN_12', 'ADC_GAIN_16', 'ADC_GAIN_24', 'ADC_GAIN_32', 'ADC_GAIN_64', 'ADC_GAIN_128'

zephyr,reference

string

Reference selection:
- ADC_REF_VDD_1:     VDD
- ADC_REF_VDD_1_2:   VDD/2
- ADC_REF_VDD_1_3:   VDD/3
- ADC_REF_VDD_1_4:   VDD/4
- ADC_REF_INTERNAL:  Internal
- ADC_REF_EXTERNAL0: External, input 0
- ADC_REF_EXTERNAL1: External, input 1

This property is required.

Legal values: 'ADC_REF_VDD_1', 'ADC_REF_VDD_1_2', 'ADC_REF_VDD_1_3', 'ADC_REF_VDD_1_4', 'ADC_REF_INTERNAL', 'ADC_REF_EXTERNAL0', 'ADC_REF_EXTERNAL1'

zephyr,vref-mv

int

This property can be used to specify the voltage (in millivolts)
of the reference selected for this channel, so that applications
can get that value if needed for some calculations.
For the internal reference, the voltage can be usually obtained with
a dedicated ADC API call, so there is no need to use this property
in that case, but for other references this property can be useful.

zephyr,acquisition-time

int

Acquisition time.
Use the ADC_ACQ_TIME macro to compose the value for this property
or pass ADC_ACQ_TIME_DEFAULT to use the default setting for a given
hardware (e.g. when the hardware does not allow to configure the
acquisition time).

This property is required.

zephyr,input-positive

int

Positive ADC input. Used only for drivers that select
the ADC_CONFIGURABLE_INPUTS Kconfig option.

zephyr,input-negative

int

Negative ADC input. Used only for drivers that select
the ADC_CONFIGURABLE_INPUTS Kconfig option.
When specified, the channel is to be used in differential input mode,
otherwise, single-ended mode is used.

zephyr,resolution

int

ADC resolution to be used for the channel.

zephyr,oversampling

int

Oversampling setting to be used for the channel.
When specified, each sample is averaged from 2^N conversion results
(where N is the provided value).
