Not sure.. I haven't used the APIs myself.  I've had issues with parts
dropping off the bus at weird times, but I think I've fixed those.  1-wire
is a seriously annoying protocol to try to debug.  I much prefer to stick
with SPI when I can.  Not that it's foolproof - I had a prototype on my
bench last night that started sending commands intended for a FRAM to the
PLL in the transmitter module!  Didn't seem to break anything, but it
certainly wasn't on the frequency it was supposed to be.
