The change does require a kernel rebuild. Refer to the board schematics to find whether the board you are using exposes the i2c lines. Retrieved from ” https: A typical value to use would be 4. It is mainly used to communicate between on-board components when the design does not allow for a data and address bus. The default gumstix kernels set the i2c-3 bus speed to kHz. The I2C specification gives some charts for min and max values see page 39 and

The waysmall board has a 3. When you provide a speed, the FreeBSD driver will guumstix to find the speed you asked for or the next highest speed less then what you asked for.
The via to the left under the T is pin 21, the one under the O is pin 20, and the one under the D is Retrieved from ” https: Because of patents that have since expired, other companies had to use slightly different ways to do the same thing so a very similar serial communications method called SPI uses 4 wires and another called TWI uses the same 2 wires.

After rebuilding the kernel, the qdac program worked just fine. Not unexpected given the unusual clock frequency.
The device address is the first byte sent in any communication. I2c is a 2-wire serial 8 bit communications protocol from the old days. A good explanation can be found here. The JTAG connector page has a photo of the hirose connector. You must set the slave address with an ioctl call prior to communicating with a slave device.
Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. These are both 3. Here’s a C example minus any error checking. Subsequent bytes of a message depend on the device you are talking to. It has 2ic stamped on it. Then you have to reset the bus using the i2c 8 utility for it to take effect. Personal tools Log in. I already had a Duovero connected to an MCP eval board through a level shifter. The TDO pin shown in the photo is pin It is mainly used to communicate between on-board components when the design does not allow for a data and address bus.

Make sure the value has double-quotes around it. The default gumstix kernels set the i2c-3 bus speed to kHz. The FreeBSD driver supports 3 different speeds: I put an oscope on the SCL line and found gumsstix clock running at kHz. Personal tools Log in.
I2C Gumstix read()/write()
It includes a schematic for the voltage level conversion of the I2C lines that’s required. Some cpu’s have the I2c hardware shift registers built in.
Background I2c is a 2-wire serial 8 bit communications protocol from the old days.
Gumtix special high to low transition on the clock line followed by a high to low transition on the data line signals the start of a message sequence. The change does require a kernel rebuild. This can be changed to kHz with a kernel command line parameter in u-boot. FreeBSD has a utility program i2c 8 much like the i2cdetect 8 utility for Linux.
