Der I2CMini ist ein kleines OpenSource Tool zum steuern von I2C Geräten via USB.
vollständige englische Beschreibug
USB to IÂ²C interface in a tiny 18x18mm board IÂ²C master, passive monitor and capture-to-PC supported at 400 kHz Two IÂ²C ports: one .1" header; one Qwiic Supplied with 100mm Qwiic jumper set Flexible control: GUI, command-line, C/C++, and Python 2/3 host software provided for Windows, Mac, and Linux
It uses a standard FTDI USB serial chip to talk to the PC, so no special drivers need to be installed. The board includes a separate 3.3 V supply, on-chip temperature monitoring, and programmable pullups for both I²C lines.
I²CMini is particularly well-suited for applications like IoT and drones, cleanly separating your SBC from the I²C bus. Because it is totally compatible with I²CDriver, you can develop on the I²CDriver and deploy on the I²CMini.
Like I²CDriver, it works equally well with Windows, Mac, and Linux. It uses a standard FTDI USB serial chip to talk to the PC, so no special drivers need to be installed. The board includes a separate 3.3 V supply for your I²C sensors and peripherals.
On the I²C side, I²CMini has the same four-pin header for connecting to peripherals as the I²CDriver. You can solder directly to this .1 " header, and because it is castellated, you can use I²CMini as a module to add instant USB access to an I²C subsystem.
I²CMini also has a Sparkfun Qwiic-compatible connector. Qwiic is a standard for connecting I²C networks without soldering.
I²CMini comes with free (as in freedom) software to control it from:
- a GUI
- the command-line
- C and C++ using a single source file
- Python 2 and 3, using a module
Like I²CDriver, it can both drive and listen on the I²C bus, and it has the same programmable pullup resistors for both I²C lines.
Who Needs It and Why?
If you want to connect an I²C peripheral to a CPU with USB, I²CMini is the ideal interface. Its straightforward Open Source hardware and software design make it the maker's choice.
Show I²C Devices Who's Boss
By controlling I²C hardware using the PC tools you're most comfortable with, you can get devices doing what you want in a fraction of the development time. Calibrating devices like accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyroscopes is much easier when done directly on the PC.
I²CMini ships with Python examples using small groups of I²C devices to make something useful.
A Tiny Bridge
At 2.1 g and 18 x 18 mm, the I²CMini will fit into the tinyiest projects, so after developing on the full-size I²CDriver, you can drop the I²CMini into small spaces like drones and IoT devices.
A Solid Platform for Your Embedded I²C Network
Because it uses the same proven firmware and toolchain as I²CDriver, I²CMini is the solid, reliable choice for driving your sensors and peripherals. It's a straightforward interface - it appears as a standard serial device - giving you a high level of portability and maintainability. There are no special drivers to install, so code for I²CMini and I²CDriver can work on any platform.
