SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] i2c: tegra: Add delay before reset the controller

Hi Alok,
Few / doubts /questions.

Tegra I2C controller doesn't have idle bit so delay is required before reset the controller in case of NACK error.  This delay is calculated purely based on clock period of that particular i2c bus and not passed as hardcoded value. I2C SCL clock-stretching won't affect this calculated delay.

Why is it clock cycle dependent?

Is it possible to poll if the stop is sent by controller ?

In Software, because of this reset of controller is happening before I2C controller could complete STOP condition. So wait for some time before resetting the controller so that STOP condition has delivered properly on bus.

How did you calculate the 2 clock cycles?


before reset the controller in case of NACK error.
