I3C Cafe - Now Brewing: A New Digital Protocol

I3C Devices

Updated on Nov 03, 2023

It's surprisingly difficult to search for devices which support I3C. In many cases, it's buried in the details of the product pages or datasheets. You may be able to find a product announcement that mentions it, but that's not always the case. As such, we're actively maintaining a list of the I3C devices we find on the market on this page.

I3C Controllers

The devices in the table below feature I3C Controller support. These processors and microcontrollers are very likely able to operate as I3C Target devices as well.
