Part Number: TCA9617A
Currently our I2C bus/PMbus (between BMC and PSU) has "master-abnormal stop-start" issue, some PSU bus information can't be read out sometimes. We have four BMC connected to PSU, then the I2C bus stub is long, the I2C clock waveform has a drop when clock rise from low state to high state. Now I want to reduce the stub to reduce the reflection, I tried 9617A, it seems not good, any other chip can be used to reduce the stub (cut the I2C bus completely)?
Can you provide scope shots of the the issue you are seeing?
What is the Vcc range you are using?
What is the max clock frequency?
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

In reply to Bobby Nguyen:
Thanks for your reply, I just debugged that the issue is caused by four PCA9617A port B are connected together. How about TI chip, two chips port B can be connected together? or it is prohibited?

-This is prohibited. We do have a device that has the "offset" side on A instead of B (TCA9509) but keep in mind this device wants VccB to be atleast 1V higher than VccA. It also requires NO pull up on A side. The only other thing about this device is it only supports up to 400kHz. (your device supports 1MHz).
