App note: Avoid clock stretch in I2C with Atmel tinyAVR

Posted on Sunday, June 3rd, 2012 in app notes by DP

Here is an app note from Atmel describing how their TWI (I2C) peripheral, found in tinyAVRs, avoids SCL clock stretching.

This application note describes a TWI slave driver for the ATtiny20 and ATtiny40. Aslave software driver is included. The application note explains how the TWI SCL clock is not  stretched, provided that the AVR clock speed is fast enough to
release the serial clock (SCL) and the acknowledge (ACK) on the serial data (SDA) signals.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
