Of course this is possible, but it makes little sense. You don;t want
to spend to much processor time in busy wait loops as it's being done
in the Soft-I2C  driver  -  especially  not  if  there  is  a  better
approach (like using the CPM's I2C controller).

PLEASE: all this is OFF TOPIC here. You are just  wasting  bandwidth.
Don't post such stuff here.
