I2C is a two-wire, bi-directional serial bus that provides a simple and efficient method of data exchange between devices. It is most suitable for applications requiring occasional communication over a short distance between many devices.
The I2C standard is a true multi-master bus including collision detection and arbitration that prevents data corruption if two or more masters attempt to control the bus simultaneously.
The interface defines 3 transmission speeds:
Only 100Kbps and 400Kbps modes are supported directly. For High speed special IOs are needed. If these IOs are available and used, then High speed is also supported.
