An I2C Network Protocol for Environmental Monitoring
Stephen Bowling, Richard L. Fischer
Communication network systems are rapidly growing in size and complexity. These systems have many high speed integrated circuits with critical operating parameters and must provide extremely reliable service with zero down time. To maintain the performance of these systems, adequate environmental monitoring must be performed, so a failure or a data trend leading to a potential failure can be rapidly identified. Furthermore,
this monitoring must be performed cheaply to keep system costs low.
