The DB-I2C IP Core Family targets applications with full CPU off-load requirements and deep system-level integration capabilities.
GLEN ROCK, New Jersey -- January 8, 2013 – Digital Blocks, a leading developer of silicon-proven semiconductor Intellectually Property (IP) soft cores for system-on-chip (SoC) ASIC, ASSP, & FPGA developers with Embedded Processor & Peripherals requirements, today announces the extension of its DB-I2C-MS / DB-I2C-M / DB-I2C-S I2C Controller IP Core family, with the following enhanced system-level features & integration capabilities:
- CPU Interface via parameterized FIFO with support for APB / AHB / AXI / AXI-lite / Avalon / Qsys interconnect fabrics
- DMA transfer between the I2C Bus & Memory (SDRAM / SRAM / FLASH)
- Direct interface to user Registers within ASIC / ASSP / FPGA, for Master/Slave transfer across the I2C Bus
- Remote Configuration of a Digital Blocks’ I2C Slave by an I2C Master
- Enhanced SCL / SDA spike filtering capabilities
- Enhanced Repeated Start capabilities
- Control Unit which completely off-loads the I2C transfer from the CPU
The DB-I2C family contains the usual I2C compliant features: Multi-Mastering, Clock Synchronization, Arbitration, SCL held low by Slave, Repeated Start, 7/10-bit addressing, & General Call capabilities as well as 100 Kbs, 400 Kbps, & 1 Mbps I2C bus speeds.
The DB-I2C IP Core Family is offered as follows:
|Model Number ||Description|
|DB-I2C-MS-APB ||I2C Master / Slave parameterized FIFO for targeted interconnect fabrics|
|DB-I2C-M-APB ||I2C Master-only parameterized FIFO for targeted interconnect fabrics. Master-only in VLSI space saving format.|
|DB-I2C-S-APB ||I2C Slave-only parameterized FIFO for targeted interconnect fabrics. Slave-only in VLSI space saving format.|
|DB-I2C-S-RA ||I2C Slave-only with Digital Blocks unique interface to user Registers|
