The LTC4310 work as a pair. There are two, and only two LTC4310 devices on a transformer. The link between LTC4310 devices cannot be shared by additional devices.
There can be two(or more) parallel sets, with the local LTC4310 devices talking…
The first thing to check is that your master supports I2C clock stretching. The LTC4331 will need to use clock stretching to accommodate for the propagation delay from long cables between the local and remote LTC4331.
Use the local LTC4331…
About 6-8 weeks.
The LTC4331 is a bit difficult to solder by hand. But if you can manage, something like PA0063 or IPC0012 that are available at Digikey may be the quickest way to start protoyping with the LTC4331.
Correct. The LTC4331 only reacts to rising edges on the bus. Its idling with DC conditions.
Hi Craig - the eval board is finally available and up on the website.
If you are running I2C off board on a cable, using a pair of LTC4331 devices may be better suited for the application.
