NEW GUIDE: Adafruit TCA4307 Hot-Swap I2C Buffer #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
I2C isn’t really meant for hot-swapping, but STEMMA QT makes it so easy! So, what can you do? The Adafruit TCA4307 Hot-Swap I2C Buffer breakout here solves that problem. It’s specifically designed to take a non-hot-swap protocol (I2C) and protect the controller from wayward peripherals messing with the bus during attach/detach.
The Adafruit TCA4307 Hot-Swap I2C Buffer guide has everything you need to get started. There’s an overview, pinouts, an example wiring diagram and downloads resources. Using this board is super simple, plug one side into your microcontroller, and the other side into your I2C sensor or breakout, and you’re good to go!
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
