System Requirements
a. A host computer with one free USB port or self-powered USB hub.
b. Windows 98se, 2000, XP or higher.
2 Interconnects
The iPort DLL/USB includes three interconnections:
3
2.1
USB Connector
The USB connector provides connection from the I2C adapter to a USB port on the
host computer or self-powered USB hub. The iPort DLL/USB operates as a
bus-powered USB device, with limited target system power. Additional target
system power can be provided via an included external power supply.
2.1.1 Virtual Communications Port (VCP)
The iPort DLL/USB provides a Virtual Communications Port (VCP) interface via a
host computer driver. Application programs running on the host computer
communicate with the iPort DLL/USB via the standard iPort DLL.
2.2
+5VDC Power Jack
The iPort DLL/USB is a bus-powered USB device. When deriving power from the
Universal Serial Bus only, a limited amount of power is available to a target system
via +5V wire in the I2C Interface Connector. Additional power for a target system
can be provided via the +5VDC Power Jack. When connected to the +5VDC Power
Jack, an external power supply will remove all target system power load from the
USB and replace it with power from the external power supply. See the “Hardware
Setup” section for additional details.
2.3
I2C Interface Connector
The I2C adapter includes a four wire, positive locking, modular receptacle connector
(see Appendix A) for interfacing to an external I2C Bus. Lines provided include I2C
Clock (SCL), I2C Data (SDA), Ground, and +5V.
Minimum wiring for I2C communications include I2C Clock, Data, and Ground.
4
Use of the +5V wire in the I2C Interface connector is optional. Connect this wire to
the target system to power the target system from either:
1 USB derived power. Maximum available target system power is 100 ma at
+5V.
2 A +5VDC Power Jack connected external +5V regulated power supply.
Maximum available target system power is 250 ma at +5V.
Receptacle Connector
An I2C Clip-Lead cable is provided to connect the I2C adapter to a target system.
Each clip-lead is clearly marked (C=SCL, V=+5VDC, D=SDA, G=Ground).
An I2C Interface Cable (White=SCL, Red=+5VDC, Green=SDA, Black=Ground) is
also provided to connect the I2C adapter to an external I2C Bus. Since there is no
standard I2C Bus connector, you may want to cut off one end of the cable and add a
connector compatible with your target system. Additional I2C Interface Cables (4
ft., 8 ft., or 16 ft.), and modular connectors are available from MCC. Additional
Clip-Lead cables are also available. (see Appendix A)
5
3 Hardware Configuration
3.1
Pull-up Resistors
I2C Bus systems are based on open-collector technology requiring pull-up devices
on each signal wire. These pull-up devices usually take the form of pull-up resistors
connected to bus power.
The I2C adapter includes a slide switch used to enable or disable internal +5VDC
I2C Bus 1.8K ohm pull-up resistors attached to the SCL, SDA, and /INT lines.
Every I2C Bus system must have at least one pull-up on the signal lines. Use this
switch to configure the pull-up resistors for your system.
3.2
Connecting to a 3.3 Volt Target System
If you are connecting the I2C adapter to a 3.3 volt target system, you should follow
these steps BEFORE applying power:
• Shut off the I2C adapter’s internal pull-ups (See Pull-up Resistor section). Use
external pull-ups to the target system’s 3.3V power. These pull-ups may already
be present in the target system.
• Disconnect the I2C connector +5V wire from the target system. The I2C adapter
will be powered from its own +5V power supply, and the target system will be
powered by its own 3.3V power supply.
The I2C adapter is a 5-volt device. Any signal above 3.3V on the SCL, SDA, and
/INT lines is high enough for the adapter to see a Logical 1.
3.3
Connecting to an SMBus Target System
If you are connecting the I2C adapter to a SMBus target system, you should follow
these steps BEFORE applying power:
• Shut off the I2C adapter’s internal pull-ups (See Pull-up Resistor section).
• Use external SMBus rated (appoximately15k ohms) pull-up resistors. These
pull-ups may already be present in the target system.
• Visit our I2C versus SMBus FAQ page (www.mcc-us.com/I2CSMBusFAQ.htm).
• See the SMBus Specification for additional details.
Special Note for SMBus Users: MCC’s I2C adapters are designed to be I2C Bus
6
compatible, not SMBus compatible. Some features of the SMBus protocol not
supported include time-outs, device reset, and Packet Error Check byte processing.
The non-supported SMBus features may, or may not, permit the use of the I2C
adapter in your SMBus application. Consult the MCC FAQ web page and SMBus
Specification for details.
4 ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) Precautions
Electrostatic discharge is defined as the transfer of charge between bodies at
different electrical potentials. Electrostatic discharge can change the electrical
characteristics of a semiconductor device, degrading or destroying it. Electrostatic
discharge also may upset the normal operation of an electronic system, causing
equipment malfunction or failure.
When connecting the I2C adapter to a host computer and a target system, extreme
care must be taken to avoid electrostatic discharge. Failure to follow ESD protection
procedures when using the I2C adapter could damage the host computer, I2C
adapter, or the target system, and void product warranty coverage.
4.1
Host Computer Grounding
Case 1 - Desktop and Single-board Computers. The chassis on a desktop or
single-board host computer must be connected to earth ground to comply with
safety regulations. If the computer chassis is NOT connected to earth ground for
some reason (i.e., use of a two-prong power mains plug), the host computer power
supply ground will float to some unknown voltage potential.
Case 2 - Laptop Computers. Laptop computers present special ESD problems. Most
laptop computers use an external double-insulated mains power supply which is
NOT connected to the mains earth ground. This means that the laptop chassis is
floating at some unknown voltage potential.
In either case, upon connection to the I2C adapter and the target system, the host
computer will discharge energy through its serial port to the I2C adapter, and on to
the target system. This discharge could damage the host computer, I2C adapter, and
the target system.
7
4.2
Grounding Solutions
To avoid damage to the host computer, I2C adapter, or target system, follow these
instructions:
• Wear an earth grounded wrist strap, or discharge any static charge build-up,
when handling the I2C adapter or any target system devices.
• Ensure that both the host computer and target system are connected to a common
earth ground point.
• Make sure that all interconnections are made BEFORE applying power to the
host computer, I2C adapter, and target system.
• If you are using a laptop computer or host computer that is NOT connected to
mains earth ground, make a hard-wired connection from the host computer (i.e.,
port connector shell) and the target system ground connector to a common earth
ground point.
• Avoid plugging and unplugging system components while the host computer or
target system is powered.
• Ensure that any devices connected to the target system are properly grounded to
the common earth ground point.
• If unsure how to properly ground system components, seek electrical expert help.
WARNING: Any damage caused by Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) through
inadequate earth grounding is NOT covered under the warranty of this product.
5 Hardware Set-Up
This section provides information on connecting the I2C adapter to your host
computer and I2C Bus target system.
1. Attach the iPort DLL/USB adapter to a free USB port on your host computer
or self-powered USB hub. If this is the first time the iPort DLL/USB is
connected to the host computer, the Windows Hardware Wizard will appear.
Follow the on-screen directions. The required driver files can be found in the
root-directory of the iPort Utility Pack for Windows CD, and after iPort
Utility Pack software installation, in the installed iPortDLLUSB Driver folder.
NOTE: The Hardware Wizard may run multiple times to install the iPort
DLL/USB VCP driver, and the iPort DLL/USB device. If the Hardware
Wizard warns that the driver files is not certified, press continue.
8
The Windows Hardware Wizard will assign the iPort DLL/USB to a new
communications port number. You can find the ComPort number of the iPort
DLL/USB by running our Message Center or Message Manager software, and
selecting the iPort DLL/USB device. You can also find the ComPort number
by expanding the Ports Icon in the Windows Control Panel | System | Device
Manager application.
At this time you can install the iPort Utility Pack software. See the installation
instructions in “Part 2 - iPort Utility Pack for Windows” of this User’s Guide.
2. Connect the I2C Bus cable to the I2C adapter and your I2C device. You can
make this connection with the included I2C Clip-Lead cable or I2C Interface
Cable.
The I2C interconnect includes a +5V wire. You may not need to, or want to,
connect the +5V wire to your target system. Refer to the “+5VDC Power
Jack” and “Hardware Configuration” sections for details on pull-up resistors
and connecting the optional +5V wire.
3. Optionally connect the external power supply to the power jack. I2C adapter
power is derived from the USB, with a limited amount of power available to
the target system via the I2C connector. Use of the external power supply
provides additional power to the target system via the I2C connector. See
“+5VDC Power Jack” section for additional details.
If you have any questions on I2C adapter setup and configuration, please contact our
technical support department via our web site.

4 iPort Message Center
The iPort Message Center supports I2C Master Transmit and Master Receive
activities for all MCC I2C Bus host adapters. With this program you can create,
save, and execute scripts of I2C Master messages.
Main Application
The iPort Message Center allows a PC to become an I2C Master transmitter or
receiving device, sending I2C messages between the PC and one or more I2C
devices across an I2C Bus.
The iPort Message Center is designed to be a simple application for experimenting
with I2C messages. It provides methods to:
1. Enter/Edit a list of I2C Master Transmit or Receive Messages.
2. Save and/or Load a list of I2C Master messages to/from disk.
3. Transmit the current list of I2C Master messages, with the option to
auto-repeat upon completion, send on INT signal assertion (with INT signal
supported adapters only), and beep or stop on special I2C Bus events.
4. Use command line arguments to automatically load, send, and save I2C
messages from a batch file or another program.
Each I2C message can transfer up to 32 bytes of 8-bit data, with Repeated Start and
Time Delay options.
16
4.1
Message Center Operations
Communicating with another device on the I2C Bus is easy. Just install the software
as described in Section 3, then follow these simple steps:
4.1.1 Starting the Message Center
Click, Start *Programs *iPort Utility Pack*iPort Message Center
4.1.2 Selecting the Adapter
Select the I2C adapter you are using by clicking the corresponding adapter image
(see Opening Screen), or the Device Select checkbox (see Main Application
Screen).
Opening Screen
Main Application
17
4.1.3 Select the Communications Port
Use the “ComPort:” control to select the communication port connected to the I2C
adapter. If an iPort/USB or iPort DLL/USB is selected, the serial number for the
adapter is displayed (Win 2000, XP+ only). In addition to legacy RS-232 ports and
Virtual Communication Ports, Message Center supports USB and network
connected local or remote RS-232 ports via the Windows Com driver.
4.1.4 Options Menu
Use the Options menu to override default Baud Rate and I2C Bus Clock rate
settings. Default settings and options are adapter dependant.
4.1.5 Establish Adapter Communications Link
Establish the communications link to the I2C adapter by clicking the Open Link
button.
The Message Center sets the adapter’s own I2C Slave address to 0xFE. Once the
link has opened successfully, you are an active I2C node. I2C messages entered into
the message spreadsheet can be transmitted upon request. If the link open is not
successful, follow the on-screen directions. Make sure the communications port is
working, is enabled in the Windows Device Manager, and is not being used by
other software.
4.1.6 Entering or Editing I2C Messages
I2C messages can be entered with the Message Editor, or a previously recorded
message list can be loaded from the File menu.
To enter or edit a message, open the “I2C Message Editor” screen by double
clicking on a message row in the spreadsheet.
18
Use the I2C Message Editor to:
1. Set I2C Address.
The I2C Address is the I2C slave address of the slave device being addressed
on the bus. All slave addresses are displayed as even numbers (00...FE),
representing the 7 most significant bits of the 8-bit slave address transmitted
on the bus (aaaa aaa0).
The I2C adapter automatically supplies the 8th, least significant, Read/Write bit
when it sends the slave address across the bus. For master write operations,
the Read/Write bit is always transmitted as a logical 0 (aaaa aaa0). For master
read operations, the Read/Write bit is always transmitted as a logical 1 (aaaa
aaa1).
Use the I2C Address control to set the slave address of the slave device you
want to address on the bus.
2. Set Message Read/Write Direction.
As a bus master device, the I2C adapter can write data to, or read data from,
any device on the bus. Use the Msg Direction control to specify if the current
message is a master write, or master read, operation. Upon making your
selection, additional Write or Read parameters appear.
3. Specify Repeated Start Messages.
I2C Bus communications support an operation called Repeated Start. In this
operation, a message is sent across the bus beginning with a Start Condition,
but without a Stop Condition at the end of the message. The next message sent
19
across the bus begins with a Start Condition, in this case a Repeated Start.
An I2C Bus master, that successfully sends a message on the bus, owns the bus
until that master sends a message with a terminating Stop Condition. The
Repeated Start operation allows the bus master to retain control of the bus
while sending one or more messages on the bus. This prevents other bus
masters, in a multi-master system, from accessing the bus and interfering with
message sequences.
The Message Center supports Repeated Starts with the doStop control.
Sending an I2C message with doStop enabled will cause the message to be
terminated with a Stop Condition. Sending an I2C message with doStop
disabled will cause the message to end without a Stop Condition, allowing the
next message to be sent with a Repeated Start.
4. Set Time Delay.
Message Center supports time delays after the completion of a message. Time
delays can be used to synchronize or sequence bus messages with the activity
of external devices.
5. Specify Write Data or Read Byte Count.
Enter the hexadecimal data you want to write to a slave receiver device, or the
number of data bytes to read from a slave transmitter. Message Center
supports up to 32 bytes of 8-bit data per message.
NOTE: The data you send may have special meaning to the receiving slave
device, but to the Message Center, and the I2C adapter, message data has no
special meaning. Consult your slave device’s data sheet for details.
Click OK to accept the message and enter it into the spreadsheet.
Master Write messages display the message data in the spreadsheet. Master Read
messages display 0xFF placeholders in the spreadsheet. Upon execution, actual data
received from a slave transmitter replaces the placeholders in the message
spreadsheet.
Repeat above steps for additional messages. The Message Center supports up to
32,000 messages in a list.
20
4.1.7 Inserting and Deleting Messages
You can insert a new message between existing messages by clicking once on a
message below where you want to insert, then press the “Insert” key on your
keyboard. The Message Editor also remembers the last message displayed, so
double clicking on a blank spreadsheet row will allow you to copy a message.
Delete a message by single clicking on the message row and pressing the “Delete”
key on your keyboard.
4.1.8 Saving or Loading Message Lists
Message Center I2C message lists can be saved to, or loaded from, a disk file. To
save the current message list, click File|Save on the menu bar. To open an existing
message list, click File|Open List on the menu bar.
Message lists are maintained in ASCII text files (*.IML) that can be edited
manually or created with a customer-developed program. See message list files for
details.
4.1.9 Send the Message List
An I2C message list can be sent manually, or automatically in response to an INT
signal assertion (with INT signal supported adapters only). To send the list
manually, click the Send button on the main application screen. To send the list in
response to an INT signal assertion (low), enable the “/INT Signal Monitoring”
checkbox, and check the “Send on /INT” checkbox. The list will be sent each time
the INT signal is asserted.
The Message Center also supports the repeated sending of a message list. If the
Auto Repeat checkbox is checked, a message list will automatically repeat upon
completion.
4.1.10 Special Event Handling
The Message Center supports the early termination of a message list, and beep on
special events. See the “Stop On” and “Beep On” controls on the main application
screen of available options.
21
4.1.11 Slave Not Acknowledging
If you get a “Slave Not Acknowledging” message in the Status window, this could
indicate you have the wrong address in the I2C Destination Address, or the device is
not answering to its address. Some slave devices temporarily stop acknowledging
their address. Consult the slave device’s data sheet for details.
22

5.1.3.2 Advanced Setup
On the Advanced Setup screen you can set the following parameters:
Adapter’s Own I2C Slave Address
Select the I2C adapter’s own slave address. The adapter will acknowledge messages
sent to this slave address. The default address is 0x6E.
General Call Enable
General Call Enable allows the I2C adapter to respond as a slave receiver to the I2C
General Call Address (0x00). General Call is used by a master to broadcast an I2C
message to multiple devices. The default value is enabled.
I2C Bus Master Bit Rate
Select I2C Bus speed during master operations. 100kHz is standard mode. 400kHz
is fast mode. Available rates are I2C adapter dependant.
I2C Bus Time-Out
Specify how long the I2C adapter will wait before reporting an I2C Bus inter-byte
time-out (0 = no time-out, 1 to 32767 milliseconds, iPort/AI fixed at 1 second).
Enable INT Signal Monitor (on supported adapters)

4 provides maximum information.
Log File Name
Specify a log file name. Unless a path is specified, the log file will be created in the
current working directory.
Log File Size
Specify log file length in lines. The log file overwrites earlier entries upon reaching
the specified number on lines.
32
5.1.4 Sending I2C Messages
5.1.4.1 Master Operations
5.1.4.1.1
Specifying the Destination Address
The Destination Address is the I2C slave address of the slave device being
addressed on the bus. All slave addresses are displayed as even numbers (00...FE),
representing the 7 most significant bits of the 8-bit slave address transmitted on the
bus (aaaa aaa0).
The I2C adapter automatically supplies the 8th, least significant, Read/Write bit
when it sends the slave address across the bus. For master write operations, the
Read/Write bit is always transmitted as a logical 0 (aaaa aaa0). For master read
operations, the Read/Write bit is always transmitted as a logical 1 (aaaa aaa1).
On the main screen, use the I2C Destination Address list control to set the slave
address of the slave device you want to address on the bus.
5.1.4.1.2
Repeated Start Messages
I2C Bus communications support an operation called Repeated Start. In this
operation, a message is sent across the bus beginning with a Start Condition, but
without a Stop Condition at the end of the message. The next message sent across
the bus begins with a Start Condition, in this case a Repeated Start.
An I2C Bus master, that successfully sends a message on the bus, owns the bus until
that master sends a message with a terminating Stop Condition. The Repeated Start
operation allows the bus master to retain control of the bus while sending one or
more messages on the bus. This prevents other bus masters, in a multi-master
system, from accessing the bus and interfering with message sequences.
The Message Manager supports Repeated Starts with the doStop checkbox. Sending
an I2C message with doStop checked will cause the message to be terminated with a
Stop Condition. Sending an I2C message with doStop unchecked will cause the
message to end without a Stop Condition, allowing the next message to be sent with
a Repeated Start.
33
5.1.4.1.3
Auto Repeat
The situation often arises, where you would like to automatically repeat a master
message operation.
The Message Manager supports auto-repeat with the Auto Repeat checkbox. You
can automatically repeat a master operation by checking the Auto Repeat control
before clicking the Master Tx, Master Rx, or Master TxRx buttons. The master
operation repeats until the Auto Repeat control is unchecked.
5.1.4.1.4
Master Transmitting Data
Specifying Master Tx Message Bytes
Master Tx Message Bytes is the ASCII or Hexadecimal data you want to transmit to
a slave receiver device. With the Message Manager, entering master transmit data is
easy. On the main application screen, click on the Master Tx Message Bytes box to
open the data editor.
In the data editor, enter one or more ASCII text characters or hexadecimal data
bytes. Each hexadecimal byte is entered as two ASCII-Hex characters (00 to FF)
preceded by a tilde (~) character. ASCII text and hex data can be intermixed, as
long as each hex byte is preceded by a tilde.
For example, to enter hex data bytes 0x00, 0x01, and 0x02, enter the characters
~00~01~02 into the text box.
Each iPort Message Manager I2C message can include up to 80 bytes of 8-bit ASCII
binary data.
NOTE: The data you send may have special meaning to the receiving slave device,
but to the Message Manager, and the I2C adapter, message data has no special
meaning. Consult your slave device’s data sheet for details.
34
Click OK to accept the data.
Sending Master Transmit Messages
Click the Master Tx button to write the specified Master Tx Data Bytes to the
selected destination slave device. If Auto Repeat is checked, the message will
automatically repeat upon completion.
The Communications Events window on the main screen should report “Master Tx
Complete.” If this message does not appear, check the slave device address,
connections, and power.
If you get a “Slave Not Acknowledging” message in the Communications Events
window, this could mean you have the wrong address in the I2C Destination
Address, or the device is not answering to its address. Consult your slave device’s
data sheet for details.
5.1.4.1.5
Master Receive Data
Specifying Data to Read
On the lower part of the main screen, set the Bytes to MasterRx edit box to the
number of bytes you want to read. For example: Set this to 1 to read a single byte.
Click on the MasterRx button to read the data from the selected slave device.
Data received from the slave is displayed in the Received Messages text box on the
main screen. The Communications Events window should report “Master Rx
Transfer Complete.” If this message does not appear, check the slave device
address, connections, and power.
If you get a “Slave Not Acknowledging” message in the Communications Events
window, this could mean you have the wrong address in the I2C Destination
Address, or the device is not answering to its address. Consult your slave device’s
data sheet for details.
35
Negative Acknowledge Last Byte
On supported adapters, the doNak checkbox gives you the option to acknowledge,
or negatively acknowledge, the last byte read from a slave device. Some Slave
Transmitter Devices require a negative acknowledgment on the final byte read from
the slave device. I2C adapters not supporting this option automatically negatively
acknowledge the last byte read.

Master Transmit and Receive
The Master TxRx button sends a master write message with no Stop Condition,
immediately followed by a Repeated Start master read message with Stop.
5.1.4.2 Slave Operations
In addition to performing I2C Bus master operations, the Message Manager can also
perform I2C bus slave transmit and receive operations.
5.1.4.2.1
Slave Transmit Data
Slave transmit data is entered in the Slave Tx Message Bytes text box control on the
main screen. Data in this text box is automatically sent to a requesting master upon
receiving a slave transmit request.
Like Master Transmit data, Slave Transmit data is entered with the data editor. To
enter data to be transmitted, click on the Slave Tx Message Bytes text box to open
the data editor. See “Specifying Master Tx Message Bytes” section for data entry
details.
5.1.4.2.2
Slave Receive Data
Data bytes received from a Master Transmitter are automatically displayed in the
main application screen Received Message window. Received data is displayed in
ASCII printable, or hexadecimal (~00 to ~FF) formats. Use the Hex-Display
checkbox to force ASCII printable data to display in hexadecimal format .
