What is the purpose of the wait routine (EZUSB_WaitForEEPROMWrite) while doing a write or a read on the I2c bus. Why are I2C interrupts disabled in the EZUSB_WaitForEEPROMWrite routine.
The EZUSB_WaitForEEPROMWrite was implemented because the EEPROM requires a certain amount of time to conduct an internal write cycle once data has been received. During this time it will not acknowledge a subsequent command.This routine implemented the "acknowledge polling" discussed in the datasheets of the EEPROMs we typically use. It is not significant to other I2C devices.
