Bus Collision During a Repeated
During a Repeated Start condition, a bus collision
A low level is sampled on SDA when SCL goes
from low level to high level.
SCL goes low before SDA is asserted low,
indicating that another master is attempting to
transmit a data ‘1’.
When the user deasserts SDA and the pin is allowed to
float high, the BRG is loaded with SSPADD<6:0> and
counts down to 0. The SCL pin is then deasserted and
when sampled high, the SDA pin is sampled.
If SDA is low, a bus collision has occurred (i.e., another
master is attempting to transmit a data ‘0’, see
Figure 9-29). If SDA is sampled high, the BRG is

If at the end of the BRG time-out, both SCL and SDA
are still high, the SDA pin is driven low and the BRG is
reloaded and begins counting. At the end of the count,
regardless of the status of the SCL pin, the SCL pin is
driven low and the Repeated Start condition is
Sample SDA when SCL goes high.
If SDA = 0, set BCLIF and release SDA and SCL.
