FT232H /dev/i2c-x

by maxxtepper on Mon Jan 13, 2020 8:51 pm

Hello,

I am wondering if it is possible to setup my FT232H board as a /dev/i2c-x device on my PC running ubuntu. I am using the smbus python library and it woud be ideal if I can have this device appear as an /dev/i2c-x (my code just has to pass in the x value and uses that device for all my software). Is this possible?

I doubt it. The FT232H makes a USB connection with the computer, then translates the USB data to other protocols on the output side. The computer's device stack doesn't know anything about the other protocols, it just sees USB traffic.
