I think exposure values are easier to read as integers than hex values.

This is the 'Coarse Integration Time' register with a unit of 'lines'.

If you have lots of time, or wish to delve deeper - we could talk about
splitting out those register tables to use CCI and/or more readable
functions ;-)

Do you have the datasheet for this sensor - or are you just working from
the information within this driver?

What device are you using to test this driver?
