DCD’s DI2CSB IP Core is a two wire, bidirectional serial bus, which provides stable and efficient short distance data transmission between numerous devices. A very simple interface, composed with read, write and data signals, allows easy connection to target device. The DI2CSB is a technology independent design, that’s why it can be implemented in a variety of both ASIC and FPGA technologies.
The DI2CSB from Digital Core Design provides an interface between a passive target device – e.g. memory, LCD display, pressure sensors etc. – and an I2C bus. – It can work as a slave receiver or as a transmitter, depending on the working mode determined by the master device. An interface composed with read, write, and data signals allows easy connection to target devices.
The core does not require any programming and is ready to work after power up/reset. The read, write, burst read, burst write and repeated start transmissions are automatically recognized by the core. The DI2CSB core incorporates all features required by the I2C specification, supporting standard, fast, fast plus,and high-speed transmission modes.
The DI2CSB can be easily customized in accordance to a project’s needs. For instance, the DI2CSB can be used in embedded microprocessor boards, consumer and professional audio/video, home and automotive radio, low-power applications, communication systems, and cost-effective reliable automotive systems.
