TCA9548A I2C Multiplexer 1-to-8 Breakout Board
If you need to control more than one device that uses the same I2C bus, then you need the TCA9548A I2C Multiplexer 1-to-8 Breakout Board from PMD Way (with free delivery, worldwide).
With a little simple coding the TCA9548A can direct your host microcontroller to one of eight separate I2C buses.
Furthermore, the TCA9548A can also act as a level converter, so you can have varying device bus and operating voltages between 1.8 and 5V DC.
Finally, the TCA9548A supports I2C hot-swap of bus devices, and supports the usual 400 kHz operating mode used by the majority of I2C bus devices.
Inline header pins are included, but not soldered to the board.
