How to Enable I2C-bus Communications in Electrically Noisy Environments
I2C-bus enabled devices are used extensively in several electronic equipments to perform system monitoring, management, or control functions. NXP Semiconductors has a wide portfolio of I2C-bus buffer devices that enable the bus to be driven over a long distance, run with large capacitive loads, interface with different supply voltage domains, and accommodate hot-swap functions. However, several system designers still face challenges with using I2C-bus in electrically noisy environments such as applications with pumps, fluorescent lights, switching power supplies, solenoids, etc. Another challenging application is one with ground offset between two or more nodes separated by long distance. During this webinar, we will discuss the need for driving the I2C bus over a long distance, challenges encountered in a noisy environment, and proposed solutions for maintaining data integrity in these challenging situations.
