The main purpose of the Industrial I/O subsystem (IIO) is to provide support for devices that in some sense perform either analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) or digital-to-analog conversion (DAC) or both. Devices that fall into this category include: ADCs, DACs, accelerometers, gyroscopes, color and light sensors, pressure sensors, magnetometers, VOC sensors, etc.
The accepted student will work on writing the driver for the proposed sensor. In the application form please let me know your plan on how to test your code.

The project is considered successful if the code is accepted into Linux kernel IIO maintainer's tree.
Have a look at the https://kernelnewbies.org/IIO_tasks page. The IIO tasks are part of your application process, try to solve as many as you can.
