In one of them (mode 2 ?), the *host* is generating the clock. I'm quite positively sure on this one - There's a philips 8051 application note about how to interface a AT-style keyboard to I2C. They used this mode. I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't available on all models, though. -- Martijn van Buul - Pino@dohd.org - http://www.stack.nl/~martijnb/ Geek code: G-- - Visit OuterSpace: mud.stack.nl 3333 Kees J.
