  • I2C Tools

 

Summary

 

  • The I2C driver can be loaded dynamically and it provides the basic facilities to interface with any I2C device.

  • The I2C driver creates a number of new folders and it also accepts ioctl commands.

  • As an example of using the driver, the HTU21D is easy to set up and read. It also has a dedicated Linux driver which is discussed in Chapter 14.

  • Without clock stretching support, all we can do is to poll for data to be ready to read.

  • Computing a CRC is something every IoT programmer needs to know how to do in the general case.

  • There are a number of command line tools that let you work with I2C, but they need to be used with caution.
