1 This document describes the i2c protocol. Or will, when it is finished :-)
3 Key to symbols
4 ==============
6 S (1 bit) : Start bit
7 P (1 bit) : Stop bit
8 Rd/Wr (1 bit) : Read/Write bit. Rd equals 1, Wr equals 0.
9 A, NA (1 bit) : Accept and reverse accept bit.
10 Addr (7 bits): I2C 7 bit address. Note that this can be expanded as usual to
11 get a 10 bit I2C address.
12 Comm (8 bits): Command byte, a data byte which often selects a register on
13 the device.
14 Data (8 bits): A plain data byte. Sometimes, I write DataLow, DataHigh
15 for 16 bit data.
16 Count (8 bits): A data byte containing the length of a block operation.
18 [..]: Data sent by I2C device, as opposed to data sent by the host adapter.
21 Simple send transaction
22 ======================
24 This corresponds to i2c_master_send.
26 S Addr Wr [A] Data [A] Data [A] ... [A] Data [A] P
29 Simple receive transaction
30 ===========================
32 This corresponds to i2c_master_recv
34 S Addr Rd [A] [Data] A [Data] A ... A [Data] NA P
37 Combined transactions
38 ====================
40 This corresponds to i2c_transfer
42 They are just like the above transactions, but instead of a stop bit P
43 a start bit S is sent and the transaction continues. An example of
44 a byte read, followed by a byte write:
46 S Addr Rd [A] [Data] NA S Addr Wr [A] Data [A] P
49 Modified transactions
50 =====================
52 We have found some I2C devices that needs the following modifications:
54 Flag I2C_M_NOSTART:
55 In a combined transaction, no 'S Addr Wr/Rd [A]' is generated at some
56 point. For example, setting I2C_M_NOSTART on the second partial message
57 generates something like:
58 S Addr Rd [A] [Data] NA Data [A] P
59 If you set the I2C_M_NOSTART variable for the first partial message,
60 we do not generate Addr, but we do generate the startbit S. This will
61 probably confuse all other clients on your bus, so don't try this.
63 Flags I2C_M_REV_DIR_ADDR
64 This toggles the Rd/Wr flag. That is, if you want to do a write, but
65 need to emit an Rd instead of a Wr, or vice versa, you set this
66 flag. For example:
67 S Addr Rd [A] Data [A] Data [A] ... [A] Data [A] P
69 Flags I2C_M_IGNORE_NAK
70 Normally message is interrupted immediately if there is [NA] from the
71 client. Setting this flag treats any [NA] as [A], and all of
72 message is sent.
73 These messages may still fail to SCL lo->hi timeout.
75 Flags I2C_M_NO_RD_ACK
76 In a read message, master A/NA bit is skipped.
