Device trees are used to describe hardware information on development boards, and has different information on different devices, which means device trees have different properties. There is documentation on just about everything in the Linux source code directory /Documentation.

Documentation for adding corresponding nodes is in /Documentation/devicetree/bindings. If we wanted to add a node under i2c, we can look at i2c-cadence.txt under /Documentation/devicetree/bindings/i2c.

Note that the file’s name is typically i2c-[name of manufacturer].txt. In our case the manufacturer is cadence. This file describes in detail how to add I2C device nodes in the device tree.
