This time-lapse video shows Jackie prepping a batch of I2C Multiplexers. Got a project where you’d like to use multiple I2C sensors? Typically, you are limited to using one I2C (pronounced “i-squared-C”) address per Arduino, but this inexpensive little breakout board expands your I2C capacity from one address up to 8!
Lovingly manufactured, tested and prepped all in one place. Learn more about how to use this handy breakout on the Adafruit Learn System.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
