We're using the K60 in out design and talking to a number of other ICs. I understand that it has two ports capable of both I2C and SMBUS communications. Is is possible to use both kinds of device on one bus or are we better off separating them out into one bus for I2C and one of SMBUS?
Also is it necessary / advisable to use a buffer (e.g. TCA4311A) when taking the bus off board, such as to talk to a SBS enabled battery?
