vrf ibutton

Question asked by hansolofalcon on Feb 3, 2004
Hello (again) from Gregg C Levine
As I've stated, not off the top of my head. That describes in a
nutshell to me, one of the basic uses for the things. I strongly
suggest that you join the list described on the IButton pages on both
www.ibutton.com and somewhere on www.maxim-ic.com inside that list,
you'll get plenty.

In fact I suggest you examine the code behind the methods for writing
to, and managing the devices. For example, if you, or the programmers
who write code for them, work from flowcharts, then it should be easy
to code a VEE example. Also the datasheets for the devices break down
the control block into some very simple expressions.
