[PATCH 02/26] docs: i2c: summary: extend introduction
From: Luca Ceresoli
Date: Sun Jan 05 2020 - 17:50:37 EST
- state the "official" name (IÂC, not I2C, according to the spec) at
the beginning but keep using the more practical I2C elsewhere
- mention some known different names
- add link to the specification document

I2C and SMBus
-I2C (pronounce: I squared C) is a protocol developed by Philips. It is a
-slow two-wire protocol (variable speed, up to 400 kHz), with a high speed
-extension (3.4 MHz). It provides an inexpensive bus for connecting many
-types of devices with infrequent or low bandwidth communications needs.
-I2C is widely used with embedded systems. Some systems use variants that
-don't meet branding requirements, and so are not advertised as being I2C.

+published by NXP Semiconductors.
SMBus (System Management Bus) is based on the I2C protocol, and is mostly
a subset of I2C protocols and signaling. Many I2C devices will work on an
