Yeah, I obviously meant I2C, sorry. P2WI had no address. It was a single-device bus. However, the way it communicated with the device was very close to I2C, apart from a parity bit instead of the ACK. From that regard, RSB is a multiple device bus, using addresses, just like I2C. The way it communicates is basically the one used by P2WI. So really, it just is more I2C-alike than P2WI has ever been. > > What would be your suggestion? > > Let me quote: > > "I don't have the bandwidth for a full review right now... I dunno > yet." Good thing that we are not talking about a full review then, but more a philosophical discussion. Thanks!
