Using i2c

Hi,
I am new to using propeller chips (P8X32A-Q44) and was wondering if it is necessary to to have pull-up resistors on the SCL and SDA lines when interfacing to an external eeprom?

Thanks

    There are no pullups in P8X32A, so you need at least a pull-up on SDA.
    If there is no clock-stretching in your slaves, SCL can be CMOS drive, so does not require a pull-up.

  • If you don't use a pull-up on SCL, make sure your I2C I/O routines are written to handle that case. Basic_I2C_Driver (in the OBEX) can do this although it's written in Spin and is relatively slow.
  • The recommendation is pullups on both.
