Can anyone tell me what the "cf" prefixes and "lpc" suffixes stand for the AD9361 cf-ad9361-lpc and cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc IIO device names?  I know this is a detail that really isn't that important to know but it possibly would help me remember what function(s) these drivers provide.


I know the ad9361-phy is the physical driver that controls the AD9361.  The cf-ad9361-lpc is the ADC/RX capture driver that controls the Rx side (DMA and HDL core) and the cf-ad9361-dds-core-lpc is the DAC/Tx driver that controls the Tx side (DMA and HDL core - including the DDS core).  But what do the "cf" prefix and "lpc" suffix stand for?


Any feedback would be appreciated.
