Detailed Description

Philips was the inventor of the Inter-IC or I2C-bus, and it is now firmly established as the worldwide de-facto solution for embedded applications. It is used extensively in a variety of microcontroller-based professional, consumer and telecommunications applications as a control, diagnostic and power management bus. As a two-wire serial bus, its inherently simple operation was crucial to its emergence as the worldwide de-facto standard.

Note: The I2C-bus API of the SC2x3 uses a resource semaphore to synchronize the bus access of different tasks. With the exception of the transmit/receive and release functions, all Master mode functions wait for the semaphore to get access to the bus, perform their operation and afterwards release the ownership of the resource semaphore. The transmit/receive functions only wait for access to the resource semaphore and perform the operation. They will not release the semaphore. The I2C release function must be called to give up the ownership of the resource semaphore, other tasks are now allowed to access the bus.
