I2C what?

enclustra i2c application note
The I2C bus needs only 2 wires for bi-directional communication

A master can communicate with up to 1008 nodes at speeds of up to 5 Mbit/s.

The I2C (Inter-Integrated Circuit) protocol was invented 1982 by Philips. Thanks to it's simplicity and use of only 2 wires it is still very popular and widely used. Every Enclustra Module uses at least one I2C bus to communicate with several chips. Be it EEPROM, Real Time Clock (RTC) or clock generator: They are all connected via I2C to the FPGA.

The Enclustra I2C Application Note describes different possibilities to make use of the I2C bus to interface with the different I2C devices on Enclustra hardware. The Application Note gives an overview of the I2C bus in general and lists all the different devices present on Enclustra hardware and their capabilities (in terms of I2C communication).
