AN355: Si5040 Two-Byte Read I2C Protocol

AN355
Si5040 TW O -B YTE R EAD I 2 C P ROTOCOL
1. Introduction
Silicon Labs has found that some MCUs do not support the normal I2C master read protocol of a repeated start.
Fortunately, the Si5040 can support an alternate 2-command read sequence. This protocol should only be used in
a single-master bus since the master has to release the bus between commands.
