+What:		/sys/bus/counter/devices/counterX/countY/count_mode
+KernelVersion:	4.18
+Contact:	linux-iio@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+Description:
+		Count mode for channel Y. The ceiling and floor values for
+		Count Y are used by the count mode where required. The following
+		count modes are available:
+
+		Normal:
+			Counting is continuous in either direction.
+
+		Range Limit:
+			An upper or lower limit is set, mimicking limit switches
+			in the mechanical counterpart. The upper limit is set to
+			the Count Y ceiling value, while the lower limit is set
+			to the Count Y floor value. The counter freezes at
+			count = ceiling when counting up, and at count = floor
+			when counting down. At either of these limits, the
+			counting is resumed only when the count direction is
+			reversed.
+
+		Non-Recycle:
+			The counter is disabled whenever a counter overflow or
+			underflow takes place. The counter is re-enabled when a
+			new count value is loaded to the counter via a preset
+			operation or direct write.
+
+		Modulo-N:
+			A count value boundary is set between the Count Y floor
+			value and the Count Y ceiling value. The counter is
+			reset to the Cunt Y floor value at count = ceiling when
+			counting up, while the counter is set to the Count Y
+			ceiling value at count = floor when counting down; the
+			counter does not freeze at the boundary points, but
+			counts continuously throughout.

+		configuration are listed in this file. Values are delineated by
+		newline characters.

+What:		/sys/bus/counter/devices/counterX/countY/direction
+KernelVersion:	4.18
+Contact:	linux-iio@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+Description:
+		Read-only attribute that indicates the count direction of Count
+		Y. Two count directions are available: forward and backward.
+
+		Some counter devices are able to determine the direction of
+		their counting. For example, quadrature encoding counters can
+		determine the direction of movement by evaluating the leading
+		phase of the respective A and B quadrature encoding signals.
+		This attribute exposes such count directions.
+
+What:		/sys/bus/counter/devices/counterX/countY/enable
+KernelVersion:	4.18
+Contact:	linux-iio@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+Description:
+		Whether channel Y counter is enabled. Valid attribute values are
+		boolean.
+
+		This attribute is intended to serve as a pause/unpause mechanism
+		for Count Y. Suppose a counter device is used to count the total
+		movement of a conveyor belt: this attribute allows an operator
+		to temporarily pause the counter, service the conveyor belt,
+		and then finally unpause the counter to continue where it had
+		left off.
+
+What:		/sys/bus/counter/devices/counterX/countY/error_noise
+KernelVersion:	4.18
+Contact:	linux-iio@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+Description:
+		Read-only attribute that indicates whether excessive noise is
+		present at the channel Y counter inputs.
+
+What:		/sys/bus/counter/devices/counterX/countY/function
+KernelVersion:	4.18
+Contact:	linux-iio@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+Description:
+		Count function mode of Count Y; count function evaluation is
+		triggered by conditions specified by the Count Y signalZ_action
+		attributes. The following count functions are available:
+
+		Increase:
+			Accumulated count is incremented.
+
+		Decrease:
+			Accumulated count is decremented.
+
+		Pulse-Direction:
+			Rising edges on quadrature pair signal A updates the
+			respective count. The input level of quadrature pair
+			signal B determines direction.
+
+		Quadrature x1 A:
+			If direction is forward, rising edges on quadrature pair
+			signal A updates the respective count; if the direction
+			is backward, falling edges on quadrature pair signal A
+			updates the respective count. Quadrature encoding
+			determines the direction.
+
+		Quadrature x1 B:
+			If direction is forward, rising edges on quadrature pair
+			signal B updates the respective count; if the direction
+			is backward, falling edges on quadrature pair signal B
+			updates the respective count. Quadrature encoding
+			determines the direction.
+
+		Quadrature x2 A:
+			Any state transition on quadrature pair signal A updates
+			the respective count. Quadrature encoding determines the
+			direction.
+
+		Quadrature x2 B:
+			Any state transition on quadrature pair signal B updates
+			the respective count. Quadrature encoding determines the
+			direction.
+
+		Quadrature x2 Rising:
+			Rising edges on either quadrature pair signals updates
+			the respective count. Quadrature encoding determines the
+			direction.
+
+		Quadrature x2 Falling:
+			Falling edges on either quadrature pair signals updates
+			the respective count. Quadrature encoding determines the
+			direction.
+
+		Quadrature x4:
+			Any state transition on either quadrature pair signals
+			updates	the respective count. Quadrature encoding
+			determines the direction.

+Description:
+		Read-only attribute that indicates the device-specific name of
+		Count Y. If possible, this should match the name of the
+		respective channel as it appears in the device datasheet
+		documentation text.

+Description:
+		If the counter device supports preset registers, the preset
+		count for channel Y is provided by this attribute.

+		attribute values are boolean.

+KernelVersion:	4.18
+Contact:	linux-iio@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
+Description:
+		Action mode of Count Y for Signal Z. This attribute indicates
+		the condition of Signal Z that triggers the count function
+		evaluation for Count Y. The following action modes are
+		available:
+
+		None:
+			Signal does not trigger the count function. In
+			Pulse-Direction count function mode, this Signal is
+			evaluated as Direction.
+
+		Rising Edge:
+			Low state transitions to high state.
+
+		Falling Edge:
+			High state transitions to low state.
+
+		Both Edges:
+			Any state transition.
