SMBus Compatibility with an I2C Device
There are systems in which it is desirable to control an I2C device with an SMBus host, to simplify the systems and reduce cost. Generally it is possible to do this, but there are hardware and software differences between the 2 buses that must be considered to achieve compatibility. This paper examines these differences and recommends solutions to ensure success.
