# 7-Bit Transmission

A host device can transmit a read request to a client, and then clock data out of the clien. The list below outlines what software for a client will need to do to accomplish a standard transmission. Figure 1 can be used as a reference to this list.

1. 1.Host sends a Start condition.
2. 2.The Start (S) bit is set; SSPxIF is set if SCIE is set.
3. 3.Matching address with WR/ bit set is received by the Client, setting SSPxIF bit.
4. 4.Client hardware generates an ACK and sets SSPxIF.
5. 5.The SSPxIF bit is cleared by software.
