     cp2112 — driver for a USB GPIO and I2C peripheral device


     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device cp2112
           device usb
           device gpio
           device iicbus

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in



     The cp2112 driver provides support for Silicon Labs CP2112 device.  The device has 8 general
     purpose I/O pins and an I2C controller that supports a subset of the I2C protocol.

     All pins support both input and output modes.  An output pin can be configured either for
     open-drain or push-pull operation.  Pins 0, 1 and 7 support special functions: I2C transmit
     indication, I2C receive indication and clock output respectively.  At the moment the cp2112
     driver does not provide a way to enable and configure the special functions.

     The I2C controller supports read transactions with up to 512 bytes of data, write
     transactions with up to 61 bytes of data and a write followed by the repeated start followed
     by a read transactions where the write can be up to 16 bytes and the read can be up to 512
     bytes.  Zero length transfers are not supported.  The cp2112 driver creates a gpio(4) and
     iicbus(4) child buses to expose the respective functions.
