Notes:

  1. Recommendation: Connect to VDDIO if not needed
  2. Leave open if not needed
  3. When using host interface in I2C mode: connect R1...R3 as indicated; Do not apply host connection to HCSB and HSDO; HSDO can be used for device address selection if needed
  4. Host signal name depends on SPI/I2C configuration
  5. Example configuration shows one external I2C bus on M3. Different configurations, e.g. using Ml and/or M2, are also possible
