USB I2C Click Board™
The MikroE USB I2C Click Board™ is a communication add-on board that acts like a highway intersection with one way in, three ways out for serial data. It incorporates a Microchip.
- Based on the Microchip MCP2221
- Communicates through the mikroBUS UART or I2C interface
- Additional GPIO and I2C pins
- 128-byte buffer
- 3.3V or 5V power supply
- Operating voltage: 3.0V
- Microchip provides software utility
- Highly configurable
- Designed for USB to I2C or UART conversion
- Supported by all MikroElektronika compilers
MCP2221 IC works as a USB-to-UART/I2C serial converter to provide USB connectivity in applications with UART and I2C interfaces. It integrates the USB termination resistors and the oscillator needed for USB operation to reduce external components. It also includes four GPIO pins to deliver diverse functionalities.
One Way In, Three Ways Out For Serial Data
Bits of data enter through the USB port into the MCP2221 USB-to-UART/I2C converter IC to take multiple exists. Two of them direct through the mikroBUS socket, i.e, either I2C or UART, while the third runs through an alternative I2C pinout on the edge of the board.
USB I2C Click is supported with Microchip's configuration utility and drivers for Linux, Mac, Windows, and Android.
USB I2C Click features two sets of SMD jumpers: GP SEL and I/O LEVEL. The GP SEL specifies if the GPO I/Os will be connected to the pinout, or used to power signal LEDs, while the I/O LEVEL jumpers enable user to switch between 3.3V or 5V logic levels.
