2009-01-19 12:57:55     i2c help


Message: 68124   


Hey all,


I was wondering if someone could tell me where I could find commands for the i2c-0. I cant seem to find the correct header file for the specified char dev. Also, seeing that this is the first time that I have played with i2c in linux if a simplified howto or code was laying around that someone could point me to would be very appreciated as well. I am trying to communicate with two other bf537's and to use a third as a master node. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the fast response, I do have some questions though.


1) How do I know the address of the device? from line 42 of dev-interface


2) Can the blackfin support more than one i2c?


3) How important is it to use -O when compiling the userspace code?

considering you're designing the board and putting the parts on it, you certainly should know the i2c addresses of every device.  you can use the i2c-tools in the dist to assist in the debugging process.


i dont know what you mean by "more than one i2c".  are you talking about slaves or busses ?  the on-chip twi interface has no limitations other than what the i2c spec has.


"important" depends on what you want.  the -O level shouldnt matter in terms of correct behavior.
