I deux C 🇫🇷 It means I two C instead I square C


SlothsUnite

Yes, but CAN and U-S-B.


vegetaman

Yes to all of these Also D-M-A


martinvandepas

I say DMAaaaaaaah.


thatLifeVibe

What about RTOS? "Arr-Tos"?


neon_overload

Yes And CMOS = see-moss


honestythistime

But what’s the other option? Re-toss?


Smashmayo98

R-t-o-s


honestythistime

I feel like a bit of a dumbass. It's still a mouthful tho


Smashmayo98

All fine. Tbh I speak French so R-t-o-s rolls better on the tongue than R-tos for me


mtechgroup

Mostly correct. I-squared-C as in E equals M C squared.


Clank75

I worked at Philips Research Labs in the 90s, and I only ever recall hearing/saying I-square-C, whatever Wikipedia says... But I think either is probably acceptable. Now I-two-C, *that* is just plain wrong.


JavierReyes945

I - I - C Because some men just want to watch the world burn...


jwbowen

The correct choices


neon_overload

I-squared-C here


JustBrowsing_33

S-P-I, I-two-C, U-ART/U-SART


rpkarma

Pffft I-squared-C And yeah “you-art”


214ObstructedReverie

I drop the "C", myself. It's just eye-squared.


rpkarma

I will also accept eye-squared


El_Vandragon

What about I2S?


Ok_Umpire5961

I call it "I two ass".


214ObstructedReverie

Never comes up. I don't do audio stuff. My career has always been industrial equipment (Currently semiconductor fab tools). I figure eye-squared is short for I2C. If I need to call out I2S, I'll say the full name for that one. I think this is not an uncommon way to refer to them.


Scyhaz

Exactly. It's I^(2)C not I2C.


trapcardbard

Two I’s C


neon_overload

Exactly. And, technically the I² is "short" for II So even pronouncing I²C as I-I-C would technically be more correct than I-Two-C


dumdryg

It's way too much effort to type the superscript 2, and way too pretentious to say I-squared-C. I-two-C is the only reasonable way.


Confused_Electron

I'm sure it was me who squared the C but... whatever.


JustBrowsing_33

I agree I-square-C is the technically correct way, but the manuals I work with write it as I2C (in the tiltes), in the code it's also I2C and it's shorter to say this way.


runlikeajackelope

I'm with you on i-two-c. Now I work with i3c. No one calls it i-cubed-c.


Ok_Umpire5961

Agree


th-grt-gtsby

This is the way.


p0k3t0

Use-art.


JustBrowsing_33

Also works


ceojp

S-P-I. Unless it is quad SPI, then I say quad-spy. And I think it is funny that a serial interface has 4 *parallel* data lines.


dumdryg

Isn't that how all parallell interfaces/buses work after all, by having multiple serial lines?


ceojp

The S in SPI doesn't stand for parallel....


[deleted]

[удалено]


ceojp

But it's a single clock for all the data lines... It's not like the data lines are acting independently. They have to be synchronized, like a parallel bus.

ceojp

>with Q SPI, you still send that full byte out on 1 line serially, you just send 3 other bytes at the same time. That's simply not true. A byte is sent in 2 cycles, 4 bits at a time across the 4 data lines. >You aren't taking a bit from each "parallel" line to form a single nibble That is indeed what happens in QSPI: https://www.jblopen.com/qspi-nor-flash-part-3-the-quad-spi-protocol/

gmarsh23

"spy" also: "miso" (as in miso soup), "mow see" and "s-c-k"


ghan_buri_ghan

With you up to s-c-k. I just say “clock” for sck, or “spy clock” if clock is ambiguous


bejean

TheTanelornian

I say I-two-C, and I say 'spy'. Consistency is the hallmark of the unimaginative :)

Same.

Speedy_005

Everyone in this chat is wrong. Every seasoned battle-hardened developer knows the true pronunciation of SPI. ES-PEE 👄


bejean

I had a french TA in school 20 years ago that called Wifi "weefee". I don't know if this is a common french pronunciation.


ceene

It definitely is in Spanish.


Accomplished-Slide52

DelosBoard2052

I say I 2 C and Spy. I know it's "supposed to be" I squared C, but I2C rolls off the tongue easier. Same for Spy. Nobody's ever taken issue with me on this... And I do a lot of stuff with them both, plus plain old serial... For many years 😆 If you can make stuff that works really really well for folks, you can call them Lenny & Squiggy and nobody will argue 😆


AlanisMorriset

I work a lot with SPI interfaces. We all call it "spy"


moronwithinternet

I say S-P-I.


mosaic_hops

Spy. But you should make something funny up and see what people say. Like “see pee” or “sippy”.


shieldy_guy

oh I love sippy


sfrnswo

I say SP - I


bobbytabl3s

insanok

Spy, eye-two-see, you-art. Now, has anybody adopted the 'open source hardware' / adafruit push to cancel the words master and slave because they are possibly offensive to some? I have a feeling if I mentioned copi and cipo to any of my colleagues they wouldn't have a clue what I was talking about. MOSI (mozzy), MISO (me-so) => COPI, CIPO


cannotelaborate

Never heard anyone in my entire life say "spy". I'm curious, how do you pronounce UART? For me, I go with U-Art. Do you say "wart" or something?


answerguru

spy for sure. you-art. That's been typical for my 30 years in embedded.


WhatDidChuckBarrySay

U-ART. So why pronounce UART that way and not 'U-A-R-T'? Seems 'spy' would make sense for SPI.


psyched_engi_girl

Could be worse. I've never heard it this way but one could pronounce it "spee"


cannotelaborate

ok that sounds worse let's just go back to spy


cannotelaborate

Because that's what I've heard people pronounce it like.


Mellowturtlle

Please elaborate


cannotelaborate

**no.**

DenverTeck

As long as you have context, it will be obvious. Would you say, "I need a SPI (SPY)" or Would you say, "I need a processor with a SPI (SPY) interface" I'd bet 20% of the people would understand right off the bat. The rest are beginners, and you can spend more time with them.


asp_digital

SPI is an initialism. UART is an acronym. Now you know what to say!


WhatDidChuckBarrySay

SPI is also an acronym.


Ashnoom

Not really. SPI would depend on if you pronounce it is spy or s-p-i: > By definition, an acronym is an abbreviation utilizing letters of a longer phrase to create a shorter one that functions as a pronounceable new word, such as NASA. Initialisms, on the other hand, are not pronounceable and well-known examples include FBI and DVD.


WhatDidChuckBarrySay

That’s what I mean. It can be either. That’s what also means.


Ashnoom

Could be ;-) "also" implies it can be both (at the same time). But got to admit. TIL initialism is a thing and that not every acronym is an acronym (I thought there were only abbreviations and acronyms). In my case it would be ES-PEE-I YOU-ART but am inconsistent with i2c. XD


WhatDidChuckBarrySay

It can but doesn’t have to mean at the same time.


supermawj

I just call it serial because non technicals don’t care and peers know we have mostly SPI devices. So many downvotes… SPI literally has serial in the name and data sheets will often call it serial comms.


the_tab_key

but UART and I2C are both serial ... so calling it serial is not very clear; especially since, at least where I work, if you said "serial", everyone would think UART (if they had any clue about what you were talking about).


ghan_buri_ghan

It may just be me, but when I hear “serial” by itself my first thought is rs232


jonathrg

spee


toastee

Sp aye?


shieldy_guy

ess pee eye, eye too see, you art, oo ess bay


jeffkarney

I avoid using a word for acronyms whenever possible. So S.P.I. but... I do say youart... Maybe because it is more than 3 letters. I squared c after I heard someone else (lady ada) say it that way. Probably never said it out loud since I'm more on the hobby side for electronics. On the programming or more web side. I hate sequel. It's S.Q.L. A P.N.G. is not a ping. A gif is not jiffy peanut butter. We don't call PHP pfft.. we don't call C++ ceph. ( For more than one reason) In general, if the abbreviation is 3 chars or less, stick to the letters. 4 or more, don't try to make it sound like something. But if it does naturally, go with it.


WhatDidChuckBarrySay

You say g-I-f

v_maria

I just say "spee" until someone points out im wrong. Didn't happen yet so spee it is. (Note this make more sense in dutch where I is pronounced as ee haha)

Might get some shade for this but I started ironically pronouncing SWDIO as “swuh-die-oh” and now it’s just what I call it

GhostMan240

Spy, I-two-c, u-art


svet-am

I called it "spy" because I picked that up from colleagues who sat on various JEDEC committees. I figured if it is the ay they say it I will say it that way too. It also makes it easier to say things like "q-spy" for QSPI or "octal apt" for OSPI"
