i2c read write to AD5301

I am trying to interface with ad5301 via i2c.  I understand that the ID is 0xC since the chip is 6 pin

configuration (6-Lead SOT 23).  It seems that I can write to the dac via the I2c driver but the reads are not

showing the value I wrote:


   value written          value read

    200                      0

    5                          32

    1                          160



I understand that the write is:       x x PD1 PD0 D7 D6 D5 D4 D3 D2 D1 D0 x x x x

and read is:  D7 D6 D5 D4 D3 D2 D1 D0


I also understand the i2c protocol with start cond, followed by address byte, followed by ack,

followed by R/W bit followed by the data, etc.


I was wondering if there is a c code that does this?  Or a psuedo code?

Since the DAC does not have a register to read or write to, is there a special way to communicate with the DAc via the i2c?

Is  there something that needs to be done to the DAC?
