According to https://developer.mbed.org/questions/54245/Does-the-FRDM-K64F-have-5V-tolerant-GPIO/ all analogue pins (and RESET, EXTAL, and XTAL) are limited to 3.3V. All other pins should be 5V tolerant.

I believe that will include the I2C pins.

Hi Jan. Thank you for answering my question :-). I do apologize for double posting a relating question. I did read the question posted at the link you provided before asking my question. However, after reading the question and answer I still wasn't sure because I didn't realize i2c fell under the digital IO pins category. I was under the impression that digital IO pins were used to set either high or low....

I2C works by quickly toggling the IO pins high and low, thus sending data :-)
