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 controller attaches an iic framework; sev-
     eral 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 com-
     mands.

     A wide list of I2C masters are supported, among them are:

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>.
