I have a question about the I2C bus. I measure the waveform by scope.
Whatever EEPROM have code program or not, I can see the same red circle waveform.
I also do remove the EEPROM and I still can see the same signal.
What's this signal meant to be?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Software reset for what device? EEPROM?
Is it possible to silence it?
What type of Wireless device are you using? The BCM20736 chip or the BCM20736S Module.? Either way it seems on power up the device will try to read in a program from EEPROM on the I2C interface. It sounds like this is what you are seeing. I would doubt that this can be turned off since that's basic to how the thing is supposed to operate. Not clear is what you are trying to accomplish... adding a memory chip which has what on it? Where is the program that you want executed?
There is still one question. How to send the Software Reset signal by the API?
I use the BCM20736, not sip module.
I have a i2c chip on the same i2c bus and it's re-sync signal is same as the software reset signal.
Is it very sure the waveform is EEPROM's software reset signal?
If it's true, we can't put this i2c chip with the same bus to EEPROM...
