Hello, we are currently investigating some different options for VRM 
control&monitoring, and would be interested in discussing fw designs 
from/with other companies.

We currently use a data-driven fw design to give the system designers 
flexibility in the hw designs and requirements on fw. We require more 
support than what the existing device drivers provide (our hw engineers 
use multiple types of VRM devices, and need access to a large number of 
device-specific registers beyond just setting voltages, such as in the 
i2c config space).

If you'd be willing to share ideas, and collaborate on potential future 
designs, please email me and we can set something up.
