High-Level Interrupts

Module hardware provides four high-level interrupts: These flag bits are read-only bits, and cannot be cleared by software.
The I2C Transmit Interrupt Flag (I2CxTXIF) bit is set when the I2CxCNT register is nonzero (I2CxCNT != 0), and the transmit buffer, I2CxTXB, is empty as indicated by the Transmit Buffer Empty Status (TXBE) bit (TXBE = 1). If the I2C Transmit Interrupt Enable (I2CxTXIE) bit is set, an interrupt event will occur when the I2CxTXIF bit becomes set. Writing new data to I2CxTXB or setting the Clear Buffer (CLRBF) bit will clear the interrupt condition. The I2CxTXIF bit is also used by the DMA as a trigger source.
Important: I2CxTXIF can only be set when either the Client Mode Active (SMA) or Host Mode Active (MMA) bits are set, and the I2CxCNT register is nonzero (I2CxCNT != 0). The SMA bit is only set after an address has been successfully acknowledged by a client device, which prevents false interrupts from being triggered on address reception. The MMA bit is set once the host completes the transmission of a Start condition.
The I2C Receive Interrupt Flag (I2CxRXIF) bit is set when the receive shift register has loaded new data into the receive buffer, I2CxRXB. When new data is loaded into I2CxRXB, the Receive Buffer Full Status (RXBF) bit is set (RXBF = 1), which also sets I2CxRXIF. If the I2C Receive Interrupt Enable (I2CxRXIE) bit is set, an interrupt event will occur when the I2CxRXIF bit becomes set. Reading data from I2CxRXB or setting the CLRBF bit will clear the interrupt condition. The I2CxRXIF bit is also used by the DMA as a trigger source.
Important: I2CxRXIF can only be set when either the Client Mode Active (SMA) or Host Mode Active (MMA) bits are set.

The I2C Interrupt Flag (I2CxIF) is the general purpose interrupt. I2CxIF is set whenever any of the interrupt flag bits contained in the I2C Peripheral Interrupt Register (I2CxPIR) and the associated interrupt enable bits contained in the I2C Peripheral Interrupt Enable Register (I2CxPIE) are set. If I2CxIF becomes set while the I2C Interrupt Enable (I2CxIE) bit is set, an interrupt event will occur. I2CxIF is cleared by module hardware when all enabled interrupt flag bits in I2CxPIR are clear.

The I2C Error Interrupt Flag (I2CxEIF) is set whenever any of the interrupt flag bits contained in the I2C Error Register (I2CxERR) and their associated interrupt enable bits are set. If I2CxEIF becomes set while the I2C Error Interrupt Enable (I2CxEIE) bit is set, an interrupt event will occur. I2CxEIF is cleared by hardware when all enabled error interrupt flag bits in the I2CxERR register are clear.
