  • Flowcode I2C - Master and Slave

    MatrixTSL

    In our previous DesignSpark blog article we discussed I2C and SPI busses; their practical applications, limitations and typical usages. In this article we will discuss some new Flowcode development work we are currently in the process of undertaking which will enable users to benefit from I2C slave mode.

    • Simplified Communications - I²C and SPI

      MatrixTSL

      Many of today's modern sensors, actuators, display, memory and other IC's come with an external interface allowing them to be controlled from a master device. This master device could be a simple microcontroller or it could be something more advanced like a Linux based Raspberry Pi. By far the most commonly used interface buses used by these devices are I²C and SPI. Both I²C and SPI are available in Master and Slave modes with the Master controlling all operations and the Slave listening to what the Master is telling it.
