I2C bus

(Inter-IC bus) A two-line, synchronous, serial bus that is widely used to connect chips together on a circuit board. Also called the "I-squared-C bus" and developed by Philips in the 1980s, it is used as a control bus for every variety of chip from sensors to microprocessors. One chip, typically a microcontroller or DSP, functions as a master and initiates requests, and all other chips are slaves that respond to the master. See SPI bus and IPMI.


(1) An earlier name for an Internet that delivered quality of service (QoS) and enhanced reliability and security. Proposed by the Infranet Initiative Council (IIC) in 2004, which was spearheaded by Juniper Networks, IIC endorsed the use of MPLS as the QoS mechanism. In 2005, the IIC turned into the IPsphere Forum, which promotes the development of a commercial service oriented architecture (SOA) that competes in an unregulated Internet.
