Title: Suggestion I2C extension
Post by: georgestheking on Nov 05, 2006, 06:45 pm
A suggestion for Hardware and Software.

Add an I2C connecteur on the board ( 2 wires ) and add a library to read/write I2C peripherical
like eeprom / Real Time Clock or Devantech Compass...


                Best regards

There seems to have been discussion of I2C on the arduino before, including a link here:
http://wiring.org.co/reference/libraries/Wire/index.html

A library in the wiring language for communicating over I2C, mind I'm a newbie with the arduino so I don't know what it would take to make this work.  I2C certainly seems like something that shouldn't need a separate port, my recollection is that it's designed to be easily interfaced with.
