Use this I2C Expander to access upto 8 bidirectional I2C Ports using a single I2C Port. This board lets you connect upto 8 I2C Devices with the same address to a single I2C Port on our microcontroller/PLC.

The TCA9548A 1-to-8 I2C 8 multi-channel expansion board enables communication with multiple I2C devices that have the same address that making it simple to interface with. Using this you can get up to 8 same-address I2C devices hooked up to one microcontroller - this multiplexer acts as a gatekeeper, shuttling the commands to the selected set of I2C pins with your command. The CJMCU TCA9548A I2C 8 Channel Multiple extensions development board is interesting in that it has an I2C address (0x70 by default) – and you basically send it a command to tell it which I2C multiplexed output you want to talk to, then you can address the board you want to address.

Pin Description : 

Power Pins:

  • Vin – this is the power pin. Since the sensor chip uses 3-5 VDC. To power, the board, give it the same power as the logic level of your microcontroller – e.g. for a 5V micro like Arduino, use 5V.
  • GND – common ground for power and logic.

I2C Control-Side pins : 

  • SCL – this is the I2C clock pin for the chip itself, connect to your microcontrollers I2C clock line.
  • SDA – this is the I2C data pin for the chip itself, connect to your microcontrollers I2C data line.
  • RST – this is the reset pin, for resetting the multiplexer chip. Pulled high by default, connect to ground to reset
  • A0 A1 A2 – these are the address selection pins for the multiplexer. By default, the multiplexer is at address 0x70 and these three pins are pulled low. Connect them to Vin to set the address to 0x71 – 0x77.
  • A0 is the lowest-significant bit (if it is pulled high, it will increase the address by 1).
  • A1 is the 2nd-lowest-significant bit (if it is pulled high, it will increase the address by 2).
  • A2 is the 3rd-lowest-significant bit (if it is pulled high, it will increase the address by 4).

I2C Multiplexed-Side pins:

  • SDx and SCx:  There are 8 sets of SDx and SCx pins, from SD0/SC0 to SD7/SC7. These are the multiplexed pins. Each one is a completely separate I2C bus set. So you have 8 I2C devices with identical addresses, as long as they are on one I2C bus each.
  • These pins do not have any pullups installed, so if you are using a chip or breakout without I2C pull-ups be sure to add them! Nicely, you can have Vin be 3.3V and have these pins pulled up to 5V (that is, they are 5V compliant).
