DESCRIPTION
I2C is a two-wire bus developed by Philips used for connecting integrated circuits. It is commonly used for connecting devices such as EEPROMs, temperature sensors, fan controllers, real-time clocks, tuners, and other types of integrated circuits. The iic driver provides a uniform programming interface layer between I2C master controllers and various I2C slave devices. Each I2C master con- troller attaches an iic framework; several slave devices can then be attached to the iic bus. All I2C slave devices are uniquely identified by the address on the bus. The master accesses a particular slave device using its address. System Management Bus (SMBus) protocol is also supported by emulating it with the I2C commands.
IOCTLS
The following ioctl(2) calls apply to IIC devices. They are defined in the header file <dev/i2c/i2c_io.h>: I2C_IOCTL_EXEC (i2c_ioctl_exec_t) User ioctl to execute an i2c operation. typedef enum { I2C_OP_READ, I2C_OP_READ_WITH_STOP, I2C_OP_WRITE, I2C_OP_WRITE_WITH_STOP, I2C_OP_READ_BLOCK, I2C_OP_WRITE_BLOCK } i2c_op_t; typedef struct i2c_ioctl_exec { i2c_op_t iie_op; /* operation to perform */ i2c_addr_t iie_addr; /* address of device */ const void *iie_cmd; /* pointer to command */ size_t iie_cmdlen; /* length of command */ void *iie_buf; /* pointer to data buffer */ size_t iie_buflen; /* length of data buffer */ } i2c_ioctl_exec_t;

HISTORY
The I2C framework first appeared in NetBSD 2.0. OpenBSD support was added in OpenBSD 3.6. This manpage first appeared in NetBSD 6.0, it was ported from OpenBSD.
AUTHORS
The I2C framework was written by Steve C. Woodford and Jason R. Thorpe for NetBSD and then ported to OpenBSD by Alexander Yurchenko <grange@openbsd.org>. NetBSD 9.99 February 27, 2021 NetBSD 9.99
