I am going to search about this and I will be back with more information.
The Inter Integrated Circuit (I2C) is supported by the Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor E660 with Intel(R) Platform Controller Hub EG20T Development Kit. You can confirm this information in the Intel(R) Platform Controller Hub EG20T I2C Driver for Windows Programmer’s Guide; and on the first page of the Development Kit Product Brief.

It is important to mention that under the supported operating systems for this, windows 8 is not listed which means it is not supported.
Thank You for the reply and the Links.
When I was going through the following URL:http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/atom-e660-pch-eg20t-dev-kit-brief.pdf it doesn't list Windows 8 as supported operating system.
Does the development kit supports it? And the document is not upto date?
We want to use a Intel motherboard which supports ready to use environment to run Windows 8 operating system and then write a customized I2C driver for Windows 8 OS, to validate the custom I2C device.
Is I2C interface available on some connectors in development kit to interface with third party I2C client devices?
Thank You for your time.
At this point the document is up to date and I am afraid Intel® has no plans to support it on Win 8, at least at this moment.
In regards to your other question, this will depend on the other device. If the 3rd party device you are using is compatible with this technology it may work but we cannot guarantee since it is not an Intel ® product.
