I²C bus booster
The I²C interface was originally developed by Philips Components to enable complex integrated circuits to communicate using a simple bidirectional bus. In practice, I²C compatible ICs may be located up to a few meters apart. In some cases, for instance, with remote data logging, longer connections will be desired. The bus booster described here increases the maximum distance between I²C devices bya factor to, bringing small networking applications within easy reach.
