In the early 80s, Philips invented the I2C serial data bus to be able to control several chips in between a TV. I2C is developed as a Master-Slave bus. A data transfer is always initiated by a master, the slave appealed via an address will respond accordingly. Due to the simple concept and the successful implementation, I2C became a standard. More than 1.000 different IC's from over 50 manufactures nowadays are using the I2C technology.
Total Phase offers powerful, compact and inexpensive I2C host Adapter for programming, erasing and verifying serial SPI memory chips and I2C protocol analyzers to support the developer during the debug phase.
