Hi guys,

I noticed there is a buffer in between the BCM20737 and the MEMs onthe I2C lines. What is the purpose of buffer there? Is it really required?

Thanks

I checked with the team that developed the board and determined that the buffer is not required. They had originally included it as a design precaution required to safely to drive 5 sensors, but in production they did not find a need for it, so it's considered optional now.
